I am now clocking up about 35 years in the beauty industry and I still love what I do!
When it comes to facials, I have always followed manufacturer recommendations and guidelines, however recently I had a hankering to create a new facial, one that has little to do with products or result-driven outcomes. I wanted to create a facial that allowed me to share energy in a way that would nurture my original roots and first love of natural therapies. The Zen Facial is the result and I’m excited to say it is so much more than a facial. I am really happy to be able to offer this to our clients where the emphasis is on the soul as well as the complexion!
Let me show you into some of my previous life other than in the Beauty Clinic – I always was one of those kids who asked ‘why’ … you know the (very annoying) type! From an early age, I was interested in the why’s and wherefores of life, I loved attending Sunday school and went on to achieve different modalities in natural therapies including crystal healing, reflexology, acupressure/shiatsu, chakra energy massage, metaphysical studies, meditation, behavioural counseling plus Reiki 1 and 2. I just love to bask in the beautiful energy of Reiki because I believe giving is receiving!
I enjoy bringing these energies and experiences to all my facials and so every treatment is quite personal for me, as I want to give a relaxing experience for each client, with this in mind I wanted to extend on this part of the Zen Facial. Clinically speaking, the massage component of any facial is generally a 10-minute set routine of movements designed to stimulate circulation and work the muscular level to create a sense of calm and physical relaxation (and is usually the part we all look forward to the most!) The Zen Facial experience is this and so much more!
Don’t get me wrong, the daily use of products to improve tone, texture and anti-aging is still important especially with today’s stressful living, toxins and high expectations (which we wear on our face every day) more than ever we need a deepening soul experience and basically, more time-out!
What about a facial that will give you results? The Zen Facial is also fantastic for results and this is achieved by way of stimulating the good hormones which, in turn, boost your complexion, relax the lines and the stress we hold in our face …. There is nothing more youthful than that! The secret to the Zen Facial is that there the components have been carefully selected to bring you the most relaxing facial possible. Based on ancient Ayurvedic health and wellness principles, certain Marma points (energy points) are stimulated to help functions of the body with better balance and harmony at a cellular level, aiding blood flow and stimulation for the body in general but especially for your complexion! The use of the Ayurvedic Bronze Beauty Wand combined with the very beautiful Kumkumadi oil makes for a wonderful treatment with a lot more massage than any other facial. Hands, legs, scalp, larger neck muscles, sinus, and face are all included in this brand-new treatment which is totally unique to Zulu Zone!
