More than skin deep
Rooted in the holistic practice of Ayurveda (meaning: science of life) this treatment requires no oil or cream. It relies solely on the power of touch. Using intricate, upward strokes to release restrictions and tensions in the muscles and connective tissue of the face, this massage brightens the skin and reduces wrinkles.
Lifts Your Spirits
Remaining fully clothed and cocooned in warm blankets, the rejuvenating process concentrates entirely on the face and neck. This powerful but gentle massage relieves stress and lifts your spirit, leaving you looking and feeling radiant.
The massage itself lasts an hour and fifteen minutes, but I do not rush you back to reality – the time it takes is the time you need to let go.
I am Yuva
After a full and varied working life, I was ready for a new challenge that didn’t involve a computer. Once I’d experienced the powerful healing effects of this treatment for myself, I knew I had found my vocation and trained as a therapist.
With every session, I continue to find it a complete joy to witness the transformation as my hands help to reconnect body and mind, through this deeply relaxing face massage.
£45 special rate for first session
£65 per session thereafter
£60 special rate for first session
£80 per session thereafter
The massage usually lasts for about an hour and a quarter but I include time afterwards for you to very slowly come round, and then to go through some beneficial exercises for the face and talk about how you can look after our skin for longevity, so allow 2 hours for the first session and 1.5 hours for subsequent sessions.
I can only accept payment in cash, by cheque, or (by prior arrangement) via bank transfer.
I’m sorry but I have to charge in full for any cancellations made less than 24 hours in advance.
More about your treatment...
~ Gentle but firm repetitive massage movements, smooth and exfoliate the skin and tone the major muscles of the face, encouraging stiffened connective tissue back to mobility and leaving the skin plumped-up and firmer.
~ The activation of Ayurvedic pulses encourages healing, energizes and regulates the skin to improve overall skin tone, lessening wrinkles and habitual expression lines.
~ Lymphatic drainage is encouraged to increase the elimination of toxins and helps to reduce under-eye bags and general puffiness, leaving the skin brighter and more radiant.
~ Connecting with the parasympathetic nervous system, it enables deep relaxation and an increased sense of well-being both in mind and body, relieving stress related symptoms like headaches, jaw tension and insomnia.

"I’m not a natural enthusiast of hands invading my personal space especially my face. I readily admit I had low expectations of what a facial massage could do for me however, Lucinda has not only changed my attitude she has altered the shape of my face visibly. The signs of years of dogged determination and grimacing are fading away apart from the fact I actually now feel relaxed and nourished. Lucinda has dancing hands which she puts to excellent use." Lin. 2017
"Lucinda’s face massages feel utterly authentic and wholesome, and less superficial than traditional facials that use lotions + potions. And they are delivered with such care and positive energy, that one cannot help leaving with 'a glow’. I will recommend her to all my friends. A treatment with her is a real gift.”
Susanna. Counsellor. 2017
"Lucinda's hands are truly magic. Yuva is more than a facial massage, it is a mind, body, spirit treat. I entered a state of overwhelming bliss and sleep-like state for an hour by what on the surface looks like a simple face massage. To know that a course of this will restore youthfulness to my facial muscles is actually just a bonus. " Niki Natarajan. Writer. 2017
"Lucinda’s massage was blissfully relaxing. After just one hour my face felt and looked as if I have woken up from a really good sleep. I thoroughly recommend this massage to anyone for a de-stress treatment."
