Beauty rituals – superficial or self-love?
As a mother, it can seem like the only time you have to yourself is when you’re locked in the bathroom washing your face. By practising massage, facial tapping and breath work you can transform a rushed everyday activity into a self-care ritual.
In this second session of postnatal care with Sisi, learn how to gently aid lymphatic drainage, identify tension melting pressure points as well as massage techniques to sculpt, and improve skin tone.
This session is open to all women, but centres around prenatal and postpartum care.
Facial massage is especially beneficial if you’re experiencing Temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ), which is the pain or tension caused from clenching your jaw. It is a common stress response and can result in head, neck or shoulder aches.
The session will end with gentle qigong flow to bring our awareness into our body and the present moment.
This session will be held online, so that you can follow the massage from the comfort of your own home.
Equipment: You will need facial oil. Having a good amount of ‘slip’ during the massage is important so you’re not tugging your skin.
