The Power of Touch: Why You Missed Facials Over Lockdown

In a world bombarded by screens, a digitalisation of life, the human touch has become a rare gem. For me, as a hands-on facialist, the power of touch has always been at the heart of everything I do.

How we shape and maintain our appearance is also a social task, and being seen by people we care about is a fundamental part of our mental health.

The pandemic resulted in a severe lack of positive, in-person communication for us all, a stress that for some eventually became visible in their stooped shoulders, thinning hair, dry skin, or unwelcome breakouts.

When I talk about the power of touch, I expand beyond sensorial physical contact, I am talking about touch as a sensibility; touch is about listening, understanding, and empathy.

How the sense of touch really works.

Touch is approached differently across cultures. When it comes to massage techniques, these can deliver a varying quality of contact to the recipient, a sensorial experience which ultimately provides the brain with relaxation or refreshment. Being devoid of this vital sense of touch during the pandemic made most of us crave those long, peaceful moments of joy you get during a facial or skincare treatment.

Apart from satisfying health and well-being needs, touch can also boost skincare product efficacy, and generate a wave of positive emotions to make people look and feel better. Touch, therefore;

  • Builds a sense of trust: the closeness of touch creates understanding and reassurance.
  • Forges unforgettable moments: touch is linked with intimacy and safety.
  • Calms and soothes: bringing about balance and relieving stress.
  • Gives emotional strength: physical touch gives a feeling of safety and confidence. 

How touch creates immersive and lasting experiences. 

For me and what I do, touch allows me direct contact with you. I made it my mission to ensure that my facial treatments are more than a mere step-by-step skincare and device application routine. When I touch, I stop and listen to what your skin, facial muscles, body temperature, pulse rhythm, and circulation communicate back to me.

I therefore deeply honour the process of applying my expert techniques, massaging your skin and muscles with my signature rhythmic SkinDance™ technique, using the power of touch to carry out personalised facial contour exercises and sculpting rituals which induce deep relaxation, energy flow, and ultimate well-being for you. Touch during my treatments is designed to give you the most powerful immersive experience.
