Our face tension and head massage expert Veronica Massa shares a guided mediation and looks at how it can help to release some tensions in your jaw and face



As my next blog I would like to share with clients suffering from face tension and specifically TMJ disorder/Jaw pain and tension this very helpful relaxation and release technique. It is a guided meditation that helps you to focus attention on your body and be fully aware of how specific body parts feel when strained by tension and realise that this tensions are just a nervous outlet that can be released. This process helps step out of the situation we are in or the mind frame we are in; encourages to detach and look at things objectively and ultimately let go of those feelings causing the tensions that are holding us back. Becoming aware of your body and how it feels, helps connecting with the feelings/emotions that are causing that tension.

Which vibration frequency are you in? Which emotion are you hanging on to? Which vibration is making you contract those muscles? Which thought? Are you feeling upset? Guilty? Fearful? Angry? Anxious? And why?Acknowledge your feelings and allow yourself to let them go replacing them with new, positive and expansive one.


Take a deep breath and relax........ going deeper and deeper as you breath out....... enjoy the process!

My name is Veronica Massa and I am a Holistic Therapist and Facial Expert.

I love working on the face and it has become my specialised focus as I am very fascinated about the face/mind connection. I can help release stress, pain and emotional tension accumulated in the face, head and neck. My treatments could provide a valuable addition to the work of the dentist when clients experience chronic TMJ disorder, relieving pain, tension and associated emotional imbalances. Our face stores and reveals our emotions. Negative emotions create blockages and tension that manifest in our face through contracted expressions, stiffness and aches. With time these facial expressions become habitual causing our face to age prematurely and chronic symptoms to develop. When these muscular contractions are held for a long time (sometime since we are children) we lose awareness of them, without realising that, through our facial motions, we are constantly sending messages to our brain. In the process of letting go of stuck emotions, the physiognomy of our face will change as it frees up, habitual lines will soften, tension and pain will be released.


My work involves the use of various methods and therapies including massage techniques, Facial Reflex Therapy (Sorensensistem)*, Traditional Oriental Facial Therapies and tools (cupping, gua sha and jade roller), acupressure and tapping, relaxation and visualisation, Face Yoga and exercises, natural face-lift massage techniques and Clinical/Oriental Aromatherapy –using Western and Traditional Chinese Medicine Theory, including Five Elements Aromatherapy and the use of clinical grade oils.

TESTIMONIAL

Hugely beneficial in relieving pain and tension in the face, head and neck.

“Veronica’s treatments give me an enormous sense of relief and well-being.

I have jaw pain from grinding my teeth in my sleep so I wanted a therapeutic massage to help relieve tension in the face, head and neck.

I went to see Veronica on a recommendation from another client so I knew she would be excellent.

I have found the massages to be hugely beneficial in relieving pain and tension.

Veronica has been really helpful in recommending things I can do at home myself such as using a gua sha. She has also sold me a wonderful essential oil that is designed to help relieve tension.”

Our natural face and skincare expert, Veronica Massa, explores what it means to be positive about ageing, explains her unique approach and shares an offer for a free consultation

As we age our lives and experiences become imprinted on our face, a face can tell many stories. Unfortunately in these days and society ageing has lost its association with wisdom and experience and became something to fear or feel ashamed about. “Old” became an ‘insult’ so we are inclined to get defensive about our age. In some cultures ageing is a privileged rite of passage that brings with it honour and added respect. As we mature and develop wisdom from our experiences and ‘inner-standing’ of fundamental teachings of life, we realize these are valuable attributes.


Having and maintaining a positive feeling towards ageing can help us preserve our beauty, feel good and feel empowered in the embodiment of the wise woman we are becoming. Reversing the ageing process by engaging in cosmetic treatments and procedure is a disappointing illusion destined to fail. When we accept that we cannot turn the clock back, we embrace fully who we are respecting and honouring the natural cycles and our true-self.


Caring for ourselves and our body is very important as this precious gift is our vehicle in this journey on Earth. Sustainable health comes from connecting with positive well being, we heal when we feel good and give love to ourselves. Let’s put the beliefs and images of the feminine imposed upon us (in this age and society) behind us! Let’s develop simple me time rituals and lovingly take care of our glorious body! Our beauty will shine through.


I wish and aim with my treatments to support you in your journey to bring out your beauty, no matter your age. Having regular face therapies is a beautiful way to care for yourself and preserve your beauty and youthful look. It can also be a profound experience that brings deep relaxation, less thinking and more feeling through sensorial stimulation. Increases self-confidence and self-esteem and is an act of loving care that allows you to melt away your tensions and stress, calm and reset your mind and focus on the present moment. Simply feel good!


Facial therapies also enhance your well being, have an accumulative effect and benefit every system in your body freeing up energetic blockages. Keeping your face fit is as important as keeping your body fit, for a healthy, stress free, young face and spirit.


For best results I recommend you spending time in Nature grounding on Earth (barefoot ideally), eat plenty of life-filled fruit, feed your mind with positive thoughts, live in the now, speak your truth, breathe deeply, introduce essential oils into your life, start your day off in the right way, do what you love and makes you happy and don’t forget to live in gratitude!


I look forward to connecting with you! Enjoy your journey, Veronica

Veronica Massa shares the benefits she gained from two weeks going back to basics and the joys of being barefoot in nature


The last two weeks have been profoundly revitalizing.


The sole of my barefoot has been pressed against the bare soil of mother creation… and I feel myself again.


My camping trip in Portugal has consisted of nothing but the beautiful simplicity of living life; we collected water from the natural spring, cooked on the open fire, washed our clothes in the stream and basked in the sun under the blue sky. I can think of nothing more healing than this profoundly simple combination.


As science has now proved, the negative/positive ion transfer between the sole of the foot and the bare earth has an electrical grounding effect on the body’s energy system. However, I didn’t need a scientific paper to convince me of this, just the pure bliss of the personal experience. Each single cell of the body revitalizes as the healing process takes place on every level.


A core principle of Native American philosophy is the purity of water. As our bodies are mostly water, it stands to reason that what we drink affects our entire being. Drinking the pure, mineral rich spring water flowing from the earth has had a massive impact on restoring my health and vitality.


Being in constant contact with the elements awakens and refines the senses putting you in touch with all that surrounds you and the world within; it encourages you to pause, listen and feel, allowing you to step into the present moment.


Walking on the uneven ground, climbing and squatting was a great outdoor exercise which served to strengthen and tone my muscles. Squatting for a reason, rather than pointless repetitions in the gym makes you realize how living on the land has a fantastic indirect benefit on your fitness.


Finally, there is nothing better for the children growing in the city than complete immersion in the natural experience. They get to understand and appreciate the basic elements of life and have so, so much fun!
