Facial Energy Release

Brief explanation of the therapy

Facial Energy Release a technique developed with, and drawing upon, the original work of Stanley Rosenberg, who is a pioneer in exploring and developing new forms of body therapy. His work embraces; Osteopathy, Cranio-sacral therapy, Rolfing, organ massage, joint mobilization, perineural massage and Tensegrity. Margareta Loughran worked with him to develop a technique that she called “Rejuvanessence” when she brought the technique to the UK.

“Rejuvanessence”, now known as Facial Energy Release – is a precise and very gentle massage which helps to release tensions in the ninety-one muscles of the face, neck, skull and shoulders. As well as looking better, clients often say they have a real sense of wellbeing. In fact, they feel invigorated, rejuvenated and ready to face any challenge.

The technique works gently in harmony with the body. It is deeply relaxing, thus releasing tightened muscles and stresses held in the connective tissue and muscles creating a more elastic and flexible face. It touches on the acupuncture points and meridians, which are believed to release blocked energy, thereby detoxifying and balancing the whole body. The technique is completely natural, and contributes to a healthier, happier and younger appearance and a relaxed body.

The face is our primary organ of emotional expression. Every trauma or stress imprints itself into our facial muscles. Over time we get used to the patterns of tension and no longer notice them. People can go round with the same stress and strain in their face for many years without being aware of it. When muscles are gently relaxed and stimulated the physical and mental release is wonderful.

By working on the fascia [connective tissue] that encases the muscles and becomes set or ‘glued’ together, the technique moves and ‘unsticks’ the layers, creating space for the muscles to relax and become toned. The technique allows the face to achieve a flexible, alive balance, toning both skin and muscle, achieving a naturally balanced mobility of the face. The unique quality of Facial Energy Release has a lasting effect on the connective tissue which softens the skin and restores mobility to the faces expression, and improves the complexion.
