For a TCM-inspired face massage
At first glance, it's easy to dismiss Geranium as a hair salon – it is, you can definitely get your tresses cut, coloured and treated there – but Geranium is first and foremost a facial salon. With 11 years of facial experience under its belt (the expansion into a hair salon came after), the salon offers a concise menu of facial treatments to target different skin concerns. The friendly therapists at Geranium are particularly trained in the art of facial gua sha – yes, that's the TCM treatment that uses jade tools to stimulate the lymph nodes on your face and no, it's very gentle and you won't be left with bruises on your face, just glowing skin.
Treatment to try Multivitamin Lifting Treatment ($500/120min). Carve out a good two hours to treat yourself to this relaxing treatment at Geranium that combines a facial gua sha with a multivitamin treatment massage for a lifting and brightening effect. After cleansing and an enzyme exfoliating peel, the therapist does a gentle extraction by hand followed by a cold compress to speed up skin recovery. Then it's on to the best parts – a face massage with a potent multivitamin serum followed by a face gua sha that's sure to lull you to slumber and a rubber mask to lock in all the goodness. A shoulder and scalp massage is done while the mask sits on your face – talk about efficiency.
Note: because of the high Vitamin C content in the serum used, this treatment is not recommended for those with sensitive skin or acne skin condition.
