Deep Connection – Facial Lift Massage
Deep Connection – Facial Lift Massage [FLM] takes the form of a gentle fingertip massage of the face, focusing on the fascia (connective tissues) of the face, neck, head and scalp. It would be wrong to think of it as a facial treatment though; by carefully stimulating key acupuncture points, Deep Connection FLM unblocks energy throughout the whole body, making it a truly holistic therapy. The treatment results in an invigorated body, a relaxed mind, and younger, healthier appearance.
Beginning with gentle fingertip strokes to loosen and warm the skin and connective tissues, Deep Connection FLM boosts the lymphatic system, improving the body’s waste-flushing process, as well as improving blood flow to the muscles of the face. Facial muscles are then taken into individual holds using very light pressure. This stimulates and tightens the fibres, which have often suffered years of contraction because of frowning, squinting, and other facial expressions that leave their mark. These techniques work deep inside the connective tissue to smooth and plump the face, removing sagginess and boosting cell regeneration.
As Deep Connection FLM progresses, deep-seated tension is released both from muscles and connective tissue. This allows the muscles more space to relax and rehydrate, as well as restoring skin tone, texture and colour by stimulating blood flow to the face. Collagen and elastin are also untangled by the fingertip massage, leaving the face with more elasticity and spring, while the stimulation of the lymphatic system flushes toxins from the skin. The combination of these effects promotes a more relaxed and youthful appearance.
Eight of the twelve major energy meridians used in acupuncture have points on the face. During Deep Connection FLM these are carefully targeted and activated. This stimulation helps to balance the flow of energy throughout the body, providing extreme relaxation and a deep sense of wellbeing. This effect also lets FER work together with the body’s own anti-aging processes.
Deep Connection FLM has also been found to ease neurological symptoms such as spasms, twitching and lose of sensation sometimes left behind from episodes of Bell’s Palsy or from physical or mental traumas.
