Each session begins with relaxation and activation of specific acupressure points on the face. Then massage movements with varying degrees of pressure detect areas of tension and encourage letting go of habitual facial expressions. Smoothing techniques remove dead skin cells and ‘iron out’ fine lines and wrinkles. Deeper techniques release restrictions in the connective tissue of the dermis, lift the underlying facial muscles and encourage the flow of nutrients to skin. The session concludes with lymphatic drainage and scalp massage. Some rose serum can be applied at this stage. The gentle, repetitive and targeted moves induce a rapid relaxation response making this a profoundly relaxing treatment, helping to restore balance to the nervous system.

The treatment has been described as a workout for the face that has a deeply relaxing effect on the whole body. Although a difference can usually be seen and felt after one treatment, the effects are cumulative and work best over a course of six sessions, followed by monthly maintenance treatments.
