The Benefits of a Holistic Facial


A holistic facial has many benefits that are more than skin deep. It combines the techniques of a traditional facial with the therapeutic effects of holistic massage, and most importantly, takes the whole person into consideration in a treatment. Instead of using invasive procedures, chemicals and machines, a holistic facial focuses on a variety of massage techniques to increase circulation, remove toxins and stimulate the production of collagen - keeping the skin looking young and healthy. It’s also great for releasing tension, headaches, sinus congestion and anxiety. Your skin is a reflection of everything that’s going on inside your body and as your largest organ, the skin needs to maintain correct balance to function optimally. From emotional stress and hormonal imbalances to diet, lifestyle and pollution - your skin is constantly trying to balance itself against internal and external factors - which is why a holistic approach to skin care is so important. Holistic facials involve treating the skin, and the person, as a "whole". It brings into consideration the bigger picture to understand the root cause of skin imbalances and works to energetically support the mind, body and soul - so we can keep these in equilibrium.


Holistic facials are a wonderful addition to your self care and wellness ritual. Among the many benefits, a holistic facial helps to:

 Before your Holistic Facial, we will begin with a brief consultation to establish your skin type and any problems you would like to address. Every session is tailored to the individual, taking into account the clients overall wellbeing. At Liberty Acupuncture & Wellness our facial treatments are intuitive and bespoke, lasting either 30 or 60 minutes.  The session begins by traditional cleansing, steaming and exfoliating. The neck, shoulders and chest are massaged to open and release, followed by facial gua sha and facial cupping to help tone, lift and sculpt the face. Our high frequency treatment is incorporated into the facial to help with an acne redness, fine lines and wrinkles, and to help kill bacteria on the face.  A personalized herbal mask and hot towel are then applied, followed by face lift massage and pressure point stimulation. During a holistic facial we are seeking to nourish the whole system, so using skincare that is pure, efficient, non-toxic and with aromatherapy benefits is an important aspect of the experience.

One of the deeper benefits of a holistic facial is to allow yourself time and space on a regular basis to check in with yourself, to reconnect, and realign body, mind and soul. We intentionally create a safe space in the treatment room, in order to help our clients let go and truly relax. When we are soothed into a parasympathetic state, our nervous system instinctively knows how to relax and heal, which is where the deepest transformation takes place.
