HERBAL SKINCARE / FACIALS
Freeing up metabolic accumulation and resolving micro scarring in the tissues that develop to support the build up of waste is the solution to recovery and optimization of the skin and its inherent glory.
Once the separation of the skin from the underlying tissue is advanced there can only be limited recovery. However, the only test of the limits of that recovery can be made through advances in reestablishing the three levels of tissue correspondence. Recovery is often a wonderful surprise. And those gains are the rightful property of the skin and its functional relations.
Don’t be sold on the notion of primary developmental insufficiency. Cluttering the cells of the skin with foreign matter to disguise the contest of accumulated waste is further burdening and complication. The mechanisms of the tissue are the key to your native symmetry and beauty where there is not distortion or penalty for stealing from Peter to pay Paul.
All of the facials offered here are treatments for tissue health and recovery. Each offers its own advance. The basic herbal facial is always a good starting point. It is a nourishing and healing basic, from this introduction the furtherance of the skin of any individual can be discerned. Each session, of any facial begins by setting goals for the focus of the treatment.
If you have known sensitivities to any natural foods or herbs you should communicate this at the time of booking and customized changes can be accommodated as each formulation is made on site.
