Oriental Face Massage FAQs
What Does The Consultation Involve?
Oriental Face Massage consultation involves asking a series of questions about how you are feeling, your medical history and find out why you have come for treatment. It also gives me the opportunity to assess any contraindications and tailor the treatment to suit your individual needs.
Are There Any Contraindications to Oriental Face Massage?
Oriental Face Massage is suitable for men and women of all ages. It is a very safe and enjoyable therapy, but there are some medical conditions where it may not be advisable to carry out a treatment, which is why a full consultation is carried out before commencing. The following conditions are contraindicated:
- Fever/high temperature
- Acute infectious diseases
- Scalp or skin infections
- Recent haemorrhage, head or neck injury
- Migraine (during an attack)
How Long Does A Treatment Last?
The first treatment lasts approximately 60-75 minutes to allow time for the consultation. Subsequent treatments last 60 minutes.
Is There Anything I Need to Do Before I Come For Treatment?
Please remove any make-up before you come for treatment.
Are Oils Used?
Basic massage oil is used to lubricate the skin and reduce friction.
How Will I Feel Afterwards?
Massage helps to boost self-esteem and encourages the release of endorphins (feel good hormones), which can help to counteract the effects of stress. Suppressed tension can often be released as can unexpressed emotion, which can bring about a great sense of relief, literally as if a weight has been lifted off your shoulders.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Some people may experience the following after treatment: tiredness or fatigue, changes in sleep patterns, feeling emotional, perhaps even tearful, changes in bowel movements/urine, excess perspiration, or flu-like symptoms. These effects are usually only temporary and normally subside within 24-48 hours.
It is a good idea to go home and relax after the treatment so that your body can heal itself sufficiently and gain maximum benefit from the treatment.
How Often Should I have Oriental Face Massage?
For maximum results, I recommend weekly treatments to begin with. The number of treatments overall will depend on your individual needs. After a series of weekly treatments, I usually recommend monthly treatments to maintain your health and well-being.
