When I first heard of the Japanese Face Massage I was a bit sceptical I’m not going to lie. Why would I want an hour long massage only focusing on my face when areas like my back, shoulder, legs seem to need it a lot more? Or so I thought!

As an actress, I’ve been used to doing a lot of work with my face. We would always warm up before going on stage and jaw relaxation is especially important. Now spending my day staring at a screen or through a lens I know that I should devote more time to relaxing. Between being a mum and a businesswoman there’s isn’t always enough hours in the day to look after me properly. Following my miscarriage, in the summer I’ve come to realise that I do need to be kinder and in a way more giving toward myself as a human being. I care for so many other people but my health and well-being is important, too.

Skinaspirations in Chelsea, London

Being invited to Skin Aspirations in beautiful Chelsea was, therefore, a welcomed opportunity to do just that. I was greeted by co-founder Simona who talked me through everything.


The treatment started with a leg stretch followed by a cleansing of my neck and face area. Then she started the Japanese face massage using a special gel. Once I relaxed it was very comfortable and you could feel how Simona works through all your facial muscles and releases tensions.


After the treatment, I felt very refreshed (even if I look a little sleepy). My skin was glowing and the gel left it feeling soft without feeling greasy, which you can get with oils. I would definitely recommend that you relax as much as possible following the treatment as well as drink plenty of fluids as prescribed by Simona.

After a Japanese Face Massage from Skinaspirations in Chelsea London

The true workings of the Japanese face massage showed the following days where my skin looked extra plumped and fresh. Especially the area at the top of my cheekbones and I can see why it’s called a natural facelift.

I was surprised to find that my muscles reacted in a similar way to when I’ve had full body massages in the past. Feeling sore for a day or two before feeling much more relaxed. It made me realise how much tension we hold in our face alone and see why it’s so important to release this from time to time. If it makes you look younger and more refreshed then that is simply an added bonus in my book.


If you would like to try it out for yourself you can visit Skin Aspirations in Chelsea in South West London. You can also win a voucher for the Japanese Face Massage right here. A lovely treat for yourself or it could make the perfect Christmas for someone in need of a little pampering. Good luck!

  1. I’d love this type of massage. My poor face is very neglected of late. Good luck with the give away Cx

  2. Its really good to have this kinds of massage over and over. Perfect to destress and relax our face for a moment. I always end up napping when having a face massage. Such a good feeling.

  3. Oo this sounds amazing! I had my first facial in over 3 years this week and it was incredible taking some time out to focus on me for once 🙂

  4. This looks amazing! It is very important to look after ourselves, we can’t work from an empty cup after all. I’m glad you felt so relaxed after your treatment.
