Adds one of our results-oriented, pinpointed, Integrative Therapies (more details here) specifically tailored to your needs AND a Body-Mind Alignment.

Body-Mind Alignment

60 min | $195

 

When your body and mind are in alignment you are able to tune into the energetic hum of the universe. In this state of alignment you release your mind’s grip on the physical world, allowing the flow of energy to pass around and through you, finding specifically the areas where you need a tune-up and delivering them instantaneous healing love and a subtle body pep-talk.

 

The deeply satisfying and relaxing process of Body-Mind Alignment is a gentle Facial Point Stimulation massage that  activates the body’s parasympathetic nervous system (rest & digest) as it guides your brain to find deeper rhythms that lead to Theta (conscious visualization) through Delta (a subconscious state where spontaneous healing is known to occur) states, creating an unhindered bridge between your physical being and your mind. While you contentedly relax in this state, we stimulate specific points (similar to reflexology) to give a gentle energetic nudge to each of your body systems.

 

All of this is punctuated with Grounding Energy (similar to reiki), mantras, abundant use of incredible crystals, and sound healing with our Elemental Balancing Bells. You will also get very specific self-care recommendations to help you grow out of your current concerns and conditions.

  • Specific Facial Massages for you to use at home
  • Breathing Techniques
  • Holistic Self-Care Worksheets

 

Though all of our services contain elements of Body-Mind Alignment, the stand-alone service is a unique experience in self-love and self care. Body-Mind Alignment can be added to a Level I Functional Facial to make it a Level II Functional Facial or Added to a Level II Functional Facial to make it a Level III Functional Facial.

Integrative Therapies

Brooklyn Herborium’s Holistic Therapy Sessions allow the client to choose the results, while the Holistic Aesthetician chooses the exact methods.

Integrative Therapies are included in Level 2 and Level 3 Functional Facials or they can be booked as stand alone services. We offer a package of six that comes with a customized holistic home care bundle. 

Integrative Therapy for Barrier Repair

Who is Integrative Therapy for Barrier Repair for? 

Barrier Repair Therapy is suitable for anyone who experiences symptoms related to the skin’s oil and water balance. This may include: Oily patches, enlarged pores, chapped skin, and dry (flakey) patches.

 

What can I expect from Integrative Therapy for Barrier Repair? 
After your first session, you can expect your skin to feel calm and moisturized, though slightly tight. This is necessary and desirable to reset your oil glands. Previous symptoms are usually relieved within 48 hours of the service. You will be given very specific directions, worksheets and (perhaps) videos to follow. You will find that in 3 weeks time, your skin will no longer feel oily in some places and dry in others.

 

Further sessions will show more immediate response and can completely resolve the issue, from there we recommend moving to an Integrative Therapy to Reduce Rednessor Integrative Therapy to Improve the Appearance of Old Scars (if necessary) and then Integrative Therapies for Maintaining Radiance (at every age).

Integrative Therapy for Biome Rehabilitation

Who is Integrative Therapy for Biome Rehabilitation for? 

Biome Rehabilitation is appropriate for anyone who is experiencing symptoms related to biome integrity. Symptoms include pimples with pus, uneven textured areas and large, inflamed, painful welts that tend towards infections.

Previous symptoms, such as inflammation and pus are usually relieved within 48 hours of the service. You will be given very specific directions, worksheets and (perhaps) videos to follow. You will find that when you return in 2 weeks time, your skin will have less irritation and pus.

 

You can expect that it will take 16 weeks to completely rehabilitate the biome and get it to a place where it is protecting itself without regular Integrative Therapies. From there, we will reassess and will recommend moving to an Integrative Therapy to Reduce Redness (if necessary) or Integrative Therapy to Improve the Appearance of Old Scars (which, in cases of extreme symbiosis which has led to structural damage, may take another series targeted towards scars and then Integrative Therapies for Maintaining Radiance (at every age).

Integrative Therapy for Redness & Reactivity

Who is Integrative Therapy for Reducing Redness and Reactivity for?

You will find that it will take up to 2 weeks to see the full results of each service.

 

You can expect that it may take up to two months to get the skin to a place where it does not overreact to most exposures, although the reduction of overall redness is usually immediate. From there, we will reassess and either continue with this same therapy to lessen the appearance of distended capillaries (mostly those stubborn ones on the cheeks or around the nose) or move on to an Integrative Therapy to Improve the Appearance of Old Scars (if necessary) and then Integrative Therapies for Maintaining Radiance (at every age).

Integrative Therapy for Congestion and Dehydration

This therapy softens hardened debris in the skin and is especially useful for those who experience tight areas, “dino skin,” blackheads, or fine lines and are looking for buoyancy and freshness in their skin. Alone, it relieves dehydration and prepares the skin to receive extractions at a future time. When added to a Functional Facial, it allows heavily congested skin to experience a deep pore cleanse.

For Your Eyes Only

Energetic Eye Lift

30 minutes | $130

The treatment starts with our Herbal Eye Mask, which contains fermented kelp, spirulina, our 5-herb, whole-plant skin nourishing infusion and clay which prepares the skin around the eyes to accept phototherapy. In addition to integrated therapies of LED light, which boosts collagen, we use Facial Point Stimulation (Facial Reflexology), Gua Sha and lymphatic drainage to improve both the physical functioning of the skin as well as the energetic messages of the subtle body providing lasting results that actually improve over time.

When will I see the results? Though the skin will appear firmer and more uplifted immediately, the full results of this service are most visible in 10-14 days and may even continue to improve. The results are actual and cumulative.

 

Ultrasonic/Microcurrent Eye Lift

30 minutes | $130

Ultrasonic waves provide a unique type of massage that smooths out the eye area while active vitamins (such as DMAE) and Calming Botanicals penetrate the skin to tighten the under-eye area, reducing the appearance of fine lines and dark circles. Micro-current is then utilized to give the muscles around the eye a specialized workout: resulting in an immediate temporary lift. Great when you have something important you want to feel and look awake for!

Integrated Eye Lift 

50 minutes  | $240

Both the Energetic Eye Lift and the Ultrasonic/Microcurrent Eye Lift can be performed together for a treatment that gives immediate gratification but continues to improve the area as time goes on for actual, lasting results.

No artificial chemicals or preservatives are used in our treatments.

Sacred Journey

60 min | $180

 

Journey outside the boundaries of your physical world-both inward and beyond the external world-within this deeply relaxing one hour service. Each individual journey begins with 5 minutes of breath work during a neck and shoulder massage and moves into a unique Facial Point Stimulation Protocol (similar to an acupressure massage) to entice the parasympathetic nervous system and align the mind with a more rhythmic brain state. Precious stones and crystals are placed within chakra energy zones as you are bathed in sound with our Elemental Balancing Bells (E.B.B.). You may choose to either bask in the bliss of melodic healing or be led through a guided meditation. Energy is then gathered and released as you come back, more balanced and in alignment with your true self.

 

CBD may be added into the massage oil for an additional $22
