Introducing the Most Relaxing, Rejuvenating Facial You’ll Ever Experience
Did you know that your state of mind can play a huge role on the health and radiance of your skin? That’s why I’m incredibly thrilled to announce the newest offering in my line of facials— The ZEN Meditation Facial! This revolutionary facial truly raises the bar for skin treatments—and it’s the first of its kind in the Kansas City area!
One of my favorite roles as an Esthetician is giving my clients a space and time to truly relax during their facial treatments. For years, I’ve thought: “This would be the perfect time for clients to meditate because a facial is inherently so relaxing anyway.”
About a year ago, (while working hard to open Elevate Esthetics Parlor), I was meditating during a Tai Chi class, and I realized that I could now finally offer a Meditation Facial!
What is a Meditation Facial?
I knew that I wanted to continue offering all the same modalities in this treatment that has made my Facial unique and luxurious, but integrate more holistic elements. Some of these elements have always been in my arsenal, but I’ve never before brought them together in quite this way.
The ZEN Meditation Facial weaves together multiple holistic elements, making it a truly exceptional experience. In addition to my traditional custom skin exfoliation treatment, serum infusion, masking and massage, The ZEN Meditation Facial can include these value-added options:
- Hot/cold stone therapy
- Gua Sha
- Manual Lymphatic Drainage
- Energy crystals
- Dry brushing
- Essential oil aromatherapy
- Chakra energy balancing
- A guided meditation
Optional upgrade: CBD facial treatment and CBD body massage treatment!
Phew! Long list, right?! I bet you’re wondering what some of these elements are, and why they’re so revitalizing.
Cold stone therapy is used to calm the skin and decrease inflammation. Hot stones are used for skin softening and muscle relaxation.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a technique I use through either directional facial massage, light dry brushing and/or Gua Sha plate stones to increase circulation and clear away built-up, stagnant toxins. This fluid is sent to your lymph glands for detoxification.
Energy chakra balancing is achieved by placing crystals at the appropriate chakra points on the body and face to help move the stressful energy away and increase peaceful, calming grounding energy.
Should you take advantage of the CBD upgrade?
Upgrading with CBD (cannabidiol) oil in your treatment takes your experience to the next level. Research suggests that CBD oil benefits the skin by:
- Decreasing excessive sebum (oil) production, a common trigger for acne
- Reducing the visible signs of aging, including wrinkles, dull skin and ruddy skin tone
- Soothing red, sensitive or irritated skin

Meditation’s Effect on Aging
As a long time meditation practitioner myself, I strongly believe that meditation helps you look and feel younger.
We’ve known for years that stress can trigger skin reactions, ranging from hives and acne to premature aging. Practicing meditation for just a few minutes each day calms your nervous system, and according to Stacy Conlon at BeautyHeros.com helps “repair your body’s tissues and cells, which gives skin a fresh, youthful glow.”
Multiple studies find that the consistent practice of deep intentional breathing not only calms the mind, it rejuvenates the body, lowers blood pressure and reduces chronic pain and inflammation. By reducing inflammation, over time, the practice slows the aging process and boosts overall cellular health.
I’ve always believed that a facial is more than just a temporary skin treatment. Your skin health incrementally improves, and now, your inner self can get the attention it deserves. Inside and out, The ZEN Meditation Facial embodies the goal at Elevate Esthetics Parlor to be a retreat for you and your skin.
