More than skin deep
Rooted in the holistic practice of Ayurveda (meaning: science of life) this face massage requires no oil or cream. It relies solely on the power of touch using intricate and carefully choreographed upward strokes to release restrictions and tensions in the muscles and connective tissue of the face. It boosts the production of collagen and elastin; wakes up sluggish muscles; reenergises the lymphatic system to lift and tone the skin and reduce 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.

£80 per session
£130 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.
