SPONSORED: Supporting menopause with EnerQi Facial Rejuvenation

Beauty and Wellness.....now you really can have it all!

Menopause has been a hot topic in the media, finally getting recognised for the serious implications it has for women on a variety of levels. GPs can offer HRT, but it doesn't always help and many women would rather choose a more natural solution.
One such solution can now be found in the form of the EnerQi Facial Rejuvenation Treatment, created by Helen Robinson (Founder of Gentle Release Therapy). Helen had long believed that she could help her clients look and feel better by combining a natural facelift with her unique style of treatment. “The treatment was even more powerful than I had hoped, with dramatic improvements after just one treatment,” says Helen. “And I was as excited, as my clients also noticed peri-menopausal and menopausal symptoms disappearing!”

EnerQi Facial Rejuvenation combines Helen's Gentle Release Therapy treatment with traditional Chinese facial rejuvenation techniques. Gentle Release Therapy is an intuitive therapy that combines energy work with Traditional Chinese Medicine principles (such as those used for Acupuncture) alongside cranial Release, endocrine Release, lymphatic release, and emotional release.

The 90-minute EnerQi treatment includes a luxurious facial using high-quality natural products, hot towels, acu-pressure dermal roller, Jade Roller, Gua Sha, and facial cupping. Whilst these tools are now found more widely in facial treatments, the unique and intuitive, retreat-based training given to practitioners, means the treatment is bespoke to each client's stresses and strains, and the layers of emotion and tension held in the face. The practitioner will intuitively work using abdominal Gentle Release and cranial Gentle Release, to support the client holistically on physical, emotional, and spiritual levels.

The treatment allows stress and tension below the surface level of the skin, to be gently eased away and reduces puffiness, fine lines, and wrinkles. “I wanted to create A divinely transformational experience for the skin, mind, body, and soul, and I'm sure we've achieved that and more.” says Helen.

Helen's pilot study offered nine women struggling with menopause symptoms a single 90-minute EnerQi Facial Rejuvenation Treatment. The Menopause Rating Scale – an international research scale for measuring menopause symptoms - was used to evaluate how each woman was feeling prior to treatment and at specified time intervals afterward.

After just four days, symptoms (including hot flushes, sweating, heart discomfort, sleep problems, depressive mood, irritability, anxiety, physical and mental exhaustion, sexual problems, bladder problems, dryness of the vagina, and joint and muscular discomfort) had improved for every woman involved in the pilot study, at levels between 20% and 82%. After one week symptoms had improved for each woman between 31% and 77%. Even two weeks after the treatment, symptoms were on the whole still very much improved.

”I was thrilled to see the reduction in discomfort for all of the women taking part in the pilot study,” says Helen. “From physical changes such as reduced bladder leaking and restless legs to feeling calmer and eating more healthily, the feedback was really positive. One woman's hot flushes disappeared completely and one delighted client felt able to make love to her husband after months of not feeling like it, and shared it was wonderful as ever!”

The graph below shows a significant downward trend in symptoms for every client following the treatment, with symptoms gradually returning over the following month. Unfortunately, one participant (Client 4) fell off her horse on the morning of her treatment, which initially negatively affected her results, but for the other eight women involved in the study, symptoms had improved by Day 2 and continued to improve for up to a week afterward. The majority of women felt a significant reduction in peri-menopausal and menopausal symptoms for almost a month.

To be able to offer this unique and revolutionary treatment practitioners must qualify in Gentle Release Therapy (from £450) and EnerQi Facial Rejuvenation (from £225). Our Gentle Release Therapy Practitioner Retreats can be attended in person at the luxurious Ashlin Farm Barns in Lincolnshire, or on Zoom, where we do our best to re-create the retreat feel for you at home.

“I truly believe that women deserve to feel their best selves during peri-menopause and menopause, and I hope EnerQi is going to help many more women achieve that.”
