It incorporates a unique blend of very effective massage techniques designed to delay the visible signs of ageing and prevent further damage in the future by means of simple, natural techniques. There are no needles, fillers, Botox injections or products which makes it suitable for those suffering allergies to commercial products abundant on the market.

It combines ancient knowledge from Ayurvedic and Chinese healing systems with a modern approach.
- Lessens the appearance of wrinkles.
- Releases tension in the facial and neck muscles.
- Reduces puffiness under the eyes and redefines facial contour.
- Tones and firms the muscles and as a result tightens the face.
- Improves skin elasticity.
- Improves skin tone and aids skin renewal.
- Increases delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the skin and increases blood and lymph circulation.
- Increases waste removal so important to increase water intake afterwards to aid detoxification.
- Can help to relieve eye strain, headaches and insomnia.
- Induces deep relaxation to mind and body, stimulates release of endorphins.
- Combats stress, rebalances emotions.
- Leaves the skin fresh and glowing, as shown in the photographs below.
There are contraindications so not suitable for all, please contact me for more details. It is not suitable for people who have recently had fillers or Botox as it may dilute the effect of that treatment.
This is particularly suited to business travellers who need to look refreshed for that early morning meeting or a special occasion such a wedding or prom. It is advised not to drink alcohol afterwards but if this can not be avoided then increasing your water intake dramatically will help to flush out toxins released from the worked muscles.
It feels like your face has been to the gym and had a good workout and I can personally vouch for this; it feels amazing! It helps you feel refreshed and rejuvenated.
How many sessions depends on life style, general health, water intake, skin care but generally I recommend a course of 6 weekly sessions with a top up once a month to maintain what we have achieved.
Testimonials for Face Lift Massage.
Marian does a fantastic job… being a great advocate of reflexology, I was surprised to find that it can be very beneficial on the face also. Although this treatment wasn't reflexology per se… it is a natural face lift massage, incorporating a small amount of facial reflexology, lymphatic drainage, and unique lifting massage techniques. After my wife had mentioned it, I thought I’d give it ago. Wow, firstly I couldn’t believe how relaxing it was. I’m not a particularly stressed person but could imagine how beneficial it would be. Second, I slept better as a result of the treatment and my face felt really invigorated afterwards and in the morning. My wife said the bagginess under my eyes also look less pronounced. I would certainly recommend this treatment without any doubt at all. Thank you Marian.
I just had the most amazing, wonderful 'face lift massage' - so much more than a facial massage, some of it works like reflexology and i just felt incredibly relaxed and peaceful! And to top it off I couldn't believe the results when comparing the before and after pics!! Well worth it, I really enjoyed the whole experience and Marian is just lovely!
The massage uses only my hands and is totally non invasive. It can be a stand alone treatment or be combined with Ear candling or facial reflexology for an additional charge.
My thanks to my lovely client for being brave enough to appear bare-faced to help me promote this wonderful technique. The picture is after 6 sessions and other lifestyle changes.
As with most Complementary therapies, it is advisable to increase your water intake for the following 24-48 hours and to 'listen to your body'. So, if your body feels hungry or thirsty or tired, respond accordingly and refrain from alcohol for at least 24 hours, avoid strong sun and rest where possible. You may feel more emotional too but this will pass; better out than in scenario. Any changes in toilet habit are only transitory and the body will rebalance.
If you are thinking of having treatments such as Botox or Fillers, I would suggest you try a Non-Surgical Facelift Treatment first, I really don't think you'll regret it.
Thanks Marian, I look forward to my next experience!" SS

Ear Candling / Thermoauricular Therapy
Origins of Ear Candling.
It is believed that this dates back to ancient civilisations such as the Aztecs, Greeks, Romans and Egyptians where reeds were used with burning herbs. This is depicted in historical pictures world wide. The Hopi Indians of America used rolled waxed leaves infused with herbs during their spiritual ceremonies and the Biosun ear candles I use are indeed named after them.
Price: £40 per session includes a head and face massage incorporating facial reflexology points.
The Biosun candles I use are made from cotton sprayed with bees wax, honey extract and sage and camomile. They have a filter in them to prevent any ash debris or excessive herbal powder entering the ear canal. Vegan candles are available on request at time of booking.
Prior to candling you must refrain from using ear drops for at least 24 hours and if starting antibiotics again wait 24 hours before having a treatment.
Both ears should be treated in the same session.
Please note: This is not suitable for people with perforated ear drums, cochlear implants, grommets, an active ear infection, known allergy to bee stings, epileptics, the first three months of pregnancy or those who have an underlying chronic illness such as cancer, MS or HIV infection.
It has been known to help relieve conditions such as: common colds, ear ache, sinusitis, allergic rhinitis, hay fever, headaches, snoring, pressure related from flying and TMJ problems.
The Science bit.
A light suction occurs and the movement of the flame causes a vibration which gently massages the ear drum and the deeper bones beyond called the Ossicle bones. The oxygen in the ear canal is replaced by the herbal vapours which move downwards causing an up draught in the middle of the canal like a chimney effect.
The temperature increase in the ear canal is transmitted to the surrounding areas, sinuses and nose. This change in temperature leads to a change in pressure and expansion in those areas that may be congested. This will cause a draining and clearing of the sinuses and nasal passages and you may be aware of fluid trickling down the back of your throat.
Any ear wax in the canal will be warmed, moistened and loosened and this will gradually be expelled over the next 48 hours so I advise you to sleep with a towel on your pillow for the next two nights as a precaution.
Depending on the health of the ears, there may be a fine yellow powder left in the candle from the herbs and some solidified candle wax.
What to Expect.
After a consultation to check for any contraindications, you will lie on first one side on my comfortable massage couch.
I will then place a square of tissue around your ear and gently try the candle for size. I will then light the candle and gently insert it into the opening of your ear making sure it is sealed in place. I then hold the candle in place timing how long it takes to burn and observing the size and colour of the flame and whether or not any smoke appears at the top of the candle. When the flame approaches the filter, I remove the candle and extinguish it. I will then ask you to roll on to your other side and repeat the process with the other ear.
During the process, you may feel warmth and hear sizzling and crackling sounds or possibly even feel a small release of pressure; this is all normal and nothing to worry about.
After that, I perform a gentle relaxing face and scalp massage to speed up blood and lymph drainage to cleanse the waste products away. There are many lymph nodes in the neck and around the ears so drainage is always done towards the lymph nodes with a very light pressure.
I then peel open the candles and look to see what, if any, residue remains which will determine whether a repeat candling is required.
You will then be helped to seated position and offered a glass of water. The whole process usually takes around 45mins depending on how long the candles take to burn which is different from individual to individual.
Please note: Symptoms can worsen immediately after a treatment but this is only transient; very often there will be an almost immediate improvement. You should increase your water intake for the next couple of days and protect the ears from cold and wind. It is advised to place a towel on your pillow case to prevent staining from any extra movement of wax from the ears for the next two nights. None of my clients have so far experienced this and should it happen, it is perfectly normal.
It is a common misconception that your ear wax is drawn into the candles.
