Dr Payot realised that if daily exercise could preser ve the
body’s youthfulness, the same should be true of facial muscles.
This formed the basis of her exercises for the face and throat,
which led to the development of the now famous 42-step massage and
Payot today has 12 face rituals with active ingredients targeting
specific skin concerns, each featuring four phases:
• A prelude massage using seven of the 42 steps of Dr Payot’s
modelling massage, using Baume a la Rhodocrosite to de-stress
and relax the client.
• Deep cleansing using micro -abrasion to eliminate dead cells,
stimulate cell renewal and prepare the skin to receive products.
• A specific modelling massage
• Customised mask
ARCHANGEL AROMATHERAPY DIVINE
AWAKENING FACIAL RITUAL
This ritual activates, clears, cleanses, aligns, balances and restores
all the chakras, according spiriual healer,
angel clair voyant and creator of the Archangel
"In the ancient language of Sanskrit, the word
chakra means `wheel of light'," she says.
" There are 120 minor chakras in the body, all
of which connect with parts of the physical body.
" The Divine Awakening ritual [using a
heavenly massage protocol and Divine Awakening
Facial Oil, originally developed as R achael's
personal facial oil to protect her `third eye' and
keep her chakras clear] is a luxurious third eye of
the soul activation ritual.
"It is an extremely high-vibration oil that
clears, heals and protects energetically. "
SKEYNDOR SIGNATURE FACIAL MASSAGE
The massage technique is one that can be incorporated into any
number of the Skeyndor professional facial treatments, chiefly anti-
ageing. It utilises advanced skincare technologies and key actives
of cosmetic hyaluronic spheres to fill out lines, pentapeptides to
relax the muscles (from the Skeyndor Corrective line) and engages
a series of focused movement techniques that together target deep
lines and wrinkling, volume and hydration levels, while nurturing
the client. “Ever ything essential is communicated to the client
via our hands,” says Luca Mora, CEO of Spanish skincare brand
Skeyndor in Australia. “K nowing where to touch, the type of
pressure used and understanding the client is key.
“ Skey ndor’s distinctive massage techniques have the added
advantage of opening up the energy flow to deeply relax and are
powerful resources for wellness and healing.”
During treatment there are differing movements and pressures
over the head, forehead, eyes, cheeks, jaw and neck.
These include micro-kneading strokes over the orbicular area,
concentrating on lines and wrinkling - pumping strokes above
the eyebrow extend to the lower eye area to release puffiness and
smooth – alternating with light touch strokes and smoothing
techniques over the forehead. This targets deep wrinkles.
Upward pressure movements over the jawline and cheek s for a
lifting effect, significantly improving the appearance of the facial
contour, and increasing blood flow to the tissues to refresh and
invigorate skin. These differing techniques also make for the
perfect primer for the products to follow.
In addition to these manual massage movements, meso -science
technology (activating current) is employed to further stimulate
blood circulation, increase cellular activity and oxygenate the
complexion and promote results.
SODASHI SAMADARA ULTIMATE
Using a sequence of timeless, anti-ageing techniques that pivot
around the Samadara Point (an anti-ageing Ayurvedic healing
point located beside the temple), this facial is designed to gently
reawaken the skin’s natural healing energies.
For the massage, rose quartz crystals as well as hands are used.
The stones are warmed; the heat not only deeply relaxes the entire
being, but also works to relax facial muscles,
which will assist with softening deep lines and
promote radiant, glowing skin.
The massage has been developed in a way so
that each movement flows into the next seamlessly
and the transition between crystals and hands is
so fluid that it has the ability to take the client
into a completely different state.
It is followed by Sodashi Thermal Infusing Face
Mask, an intensive boost of vitamins and minerals.
Skin is deeply cleansed, nourished, hydrated
and toned and the massage and mask also
stimulate circulation to assist penetration of the
Samadara Ultimate Age-Defying Crème, Eye
Crème and Oil on face, neck and décolletage.
WATERLILY PERFORMANCE SPA FACIALS
“Massage not only relieves muscular aches and pains but the deep
relaxation responses it induces by activating parasympathetic
responses in the central nervous system measurably boost
immune function and lower stress hormones, the precursor to all
longterm disease,” says Michelle Reeve, founder of the Australian
aromatherapy-based spa brand, Waterlily.
“Often overlooked is the effect of massage on cellular
regeneration in the skin by actively stimulating the circulatory
system to flush new cells with nutrients while boosting immune
function and detoxification through the lymphatics. Essentially
massage is an anti-ageing treatment within itself.
“ W ithin the Waterlily Performance Spa Facials the most active
and concentrated infusions are reser ved for the massage sequence.
“This is when we can really utilise the transdermal nature of our
active ingredients and drench the skin with nutrition.
“Unfortunately, many therapists still consider massage to be the
benign component of a facial. This really is under- capitalising on
the stimulating ability massage has to infuse an active lipid deliver y
system with therapeutic essential oils, fat-soluble vitamins and
phytonutrients to enhance new granulation at the basal layers.”
