More than skin deep
Massage 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. Working on the para-sympathetic nervous system (the rest and repair branch of the nervous system) 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.
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 left our last session to go straight to a party and realised in the car to my horror I'd left my make up behind - I decided to brave it bare faced with my 'Yuva' glow and have never had so many people say how well I looked! Thank you - it's the most amazing treatment." Sophie. Photographer. 2018
"After just a handful of treatments my wrinkles are virtually non-existent and my sagging jawline has returned to its rightful place. Quite amazing that such a pleasurable facial treatment has these strong results. Lucinda is an amazing therapist and her treatment should be at the top of everyone’s list." Georgina. 2018
"Lucinda is in incredible person with an incredible talent. Her face massages are now my monthly addiction. I leave her studio feeling refreshed and rejuvenated with my skin glowing. I can't recommend her more highly - I feel so lucky to have found her!" Melissa. 2018
"A Yuva face massage is so much more than just a rejuvenating facial…although if that is all you are after, you definitely won’t be disappointed. It is in fact a completely holistic treatment, which will have you floating out of Lucinda’s on a cloud of contentment and well-being. She is truly gifted and generous with her energy and you will feel you have known her for years. Don’t consider this as a luxury, but as an essential part of life’s toolkit." Polly. 2018
"I swear Lucinda has healing hands. Her facials are not something you would normally expect - there are no lotions and potions - just her hands, you are cocooned on her treatment bed then her hands take over. She works the muscles of your face, not only to give them a bit of much needed exercise but also to ease tensions, rejuvenate them and mend them when required. I had a severe jaw break and she was amazing about how she handled my face when I am so sensitive about it. Her face massages rejuvenate but also heal." Melanie. 2018
"Quite simply the most blissful hour I have spent in a very long time - if ever. I floated off the bed feeling and looking years younger. It’s now a regular must." Charlotte. Fashion Consultant. 2018
"I'd like to keep Yuva as a much cherished secret but to deny others the benefits of Lucinda's massage would be a crime. You simply have to try one after which you'll never look back." Joanna. Graphic Designer. 2018
"What’s not to like about the time I spent in Lucinda’s hands? A truly remarkable experience of total rejuvenation and relaxation. I'm so lucky to have found her." Lizzy. Company Director. 2018
"Lucinda definitely has healing hands. Yuva is much more than a face massage - it is an experience, which benefits the mind, body and spirit as well as the face. I felt blissfully relaxed and restored afterwards and much look forward to my next one." Philippa. Interior Designer. 2018
"Lucinda has healing hands and a huge heart. So not only did my face soften and glow, but I also felt nurtured and held by her presence. If I lived nearer I would be going back regularly. Bliss. " Rebecca, Life Coach. October 2017
"I feel incredibly lucky to have come across Lucinda. I have had 6 incredible face massages with her - one literally comes away feeling younger, fresher and more alive. It is nothing like I have experienced before and I feel privileged to have enjoyed these sessions and also increase my knowledge about how we should be treating our faces for their longevity."
Camilla. Gallery Owner. 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 thanks for all my wonderful face massages you are the most fabulous of therapists and I will HIGHLY recommend you to ALL my friends"
Suki Posnett. Rejuvenated Housewife. 2017

Georgina. Art and Travel Consultant. 2017
"Exhausted and very stressed I arrived for my hour with Lucinda and left blissfully relaxed and visibly rejuvenated. I will be back again and again. "
Jonathan. Media Consultant.2017
£65 per session
£100 per session
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’m sorry but I have to charge in full for any cancellations made less than 48 hours in advance.
