Restore Your Mind/Body Balance

There are clear benefits to living a full and busy life, including fond memories, meaningful interactions with the people we love, personal goals and accomplishments, and simply making the most of the limited time we have in our bodies.

However, as we are collectively shifting toward an increasingly active way of life, we may neglect to set aside time to quiet our minds and restore balance in our bodies for optimal wellness. Total Glow offers a soothing and effective solution to the mental and physical effects of life’s stressors. With our Eastern Facial Massage Palo Alto patients can experience facial rejuvenation and full-body benefits in a relaxing and luxurious environment.

What are the Benefits?

The benefits cultivated by Eastern Facial Massage go far beyond physical tension release, affecting your body’s organs, systems, and cells on a macro level.

With targeted attention to acupressure points, this highly specialized and holistic technique offers:

  • Cosmetic benefits, including a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and other skin-related conditions associated with reduced circulation, such as puffiness, dullness, and laxity
  • Expedited removal of dead skin cells
  • Enhanced blood circulation
  • Calming of the nervous system, alleviating stress-related symptoms such as insomnia, headache, and eye strain
  • Stimulation of cellular activity and repair
  • Enhanced performance of the body’s natural healing mechanisms
  • Invigoration of your body’s lymphatic system to assist in the elimination of toxins

More about these ancient traditions

Eastern Facial Massage (also known as Facial Rejuvenation) directs Chi (“life flow” in the Anma tradition) to the face by treating meridians, or invisible paths of energy transmission within the body.

By massaging pressure points along these meridians, any blockages impeding the flow of energy are cleared to restore proper function and balance. Also incorporating the Indian Ayurveda healing tradition, Eastern Facial Massage focuses on the three upper Chakras. Chakras are specific points within the body that serve as energy-flow intersections. By treating the upper Chakras (the crown, third eye, and throat), the mind becomes quiet, enabling the body’s prana (energy) to focus on healing.

How soon will I see my results?

As Eastern Facial Massage is a systemic, holistic treatment, results are gradual. However, it is important to mention that overall wellness and ongoing results are often more valuable than instant gratification. You will begin to notice visible results approximately three to four weeks after treatment. While even a single treatment is immensely soothing and beneficial, the best and longest-lasting results can be achieved with weekly treatments over about two months.
