Korean Beauty

Con­vey­ing our daily emo­tions can stress and build ten­sion in our fa­cial mus­cles over time. Ko­rea Beauty Cen­tre’s kyung-rak mas­sages aim to re­lax and bal­ance the fa­cial mus­cles to help you achieve your ideal pro­file and look.

Herworld (Singapore) - - KOREA BEAUTY CENTRE SPECIAL -

For more than 11 years, the Kore­ans and Ja­panese have turned to it to main­tain their beauty, health and well­ness. Tra­di­tional Korean mas­sage kyung-rak is a deep­tis­sue mas­sage that works on the prin­ci­ples of merid­ian points. Ac­cord­ing to spa di­rec­tor Si-ra Nam, “merid­i­ans are en­ergy streams that con­trol our ev­ery func­tion. When these are blocked, our men­tal and phys­i­cal health will be af­fected. Kyung-rak ad­dresses en­ergy im­bal­ances and re­leases ten­sion while en­hanc­ing cir­cu­la­tion, detox­i­ca­tion and toni cation”.

The mas­sage works for both face and body, and is said to have slim­ming, lift­ing and smooth­ing ef­fects. Here, Ko­rea Beauty Cen­tre shares how its two most pop­u­lar treat­ments can help you achieve a ra­di­ant com­plex­ion and sleek gure.

The V-face

The spa’s Lymph Ko­rea Kyung-rak fa­cial is a favourite with Ja­panese and Korean cus­tomers.

The 80-minute fa­cial in­cludes a cleanse­mask-mas­sage-mask pro­ce­dure for the face, neck, shoul­ders and chest. The treat­ment drains the skin of ex­cess uids and tox­ins while ad­dress­ing wrin­kles and hy­per­pig­men­ta­tion is­sues. The treat­ment may be cus­tomised to in­di­vid­ual needs. The ther­a­pist rounds off the ses­sion with a com­pli­men­tary eye­brow trim­ming. Once-aweek ses­sions are rec­om­mended, at $130 a ses­sion, or $990 for 11 ses­sions.

The body ex­pe­ri­ence

Those suf­fer­ing from aching mus­cles and wa­ter re­ten­tion can look to the spa’s Full Body Treat­ment. No other treat­ment makes you feel more like a queen – you get a kyung-rak mas­sage from two masseuses, one work­ing on the top half of your body, the other on the bot­tom half. To­gether, they knead ev­ery inch of you in the two-hour ses­sion.

The masseuses be­gin by spread­ing a gen­er­ous amount of anti- cel­lulite mas­sage oil all over the body us­ing a warmed hand­held plate-like de­vice. The de­vice pro­vides a sooth­ing warm sen­sa­tion while emit­ting ra­diofre­quency waves that sup­pos­edly help break down fat deep within the skin and prep the body for mas­sage. The masseuses then pro­ceed to use their hands,  sts and el­bows to soothe aching mus­cles and stim­u­late body cir­cu­la­tion. The Full Body Treat­ment is said to en­hance the body’s cir­cu­la­tory sys­tem, aid­ing detoxi cation while re­liev­ing fa­tigue and stress. Cus­tomers have re­ported feel­ing lighter and more re­freshed, with smoother and  rmer skin, even after one ses­sion.

A note to those who do not en­joy strong mas­sages: Kore­ans gen­er­ally pre­fer hard mas­sages and Korean mas­sages are known for their strong strokes. Slight bruis­ing may oc­cur, so do let your masseuses know your pref­er­ence early. For best re­sults, start with weekly ses­sions for a month, fol­lowed by treat­ments once ev­ery two weeks. The reg­u­lar­ity of ses­sions rec­om­mended varies with the in­di­vid­ual.

Ko­rea Beauty Cen­tre, a tra­di­tional Korean spa outt, has been in Sin­ga­pore for more than 11 years. It pro­vides an authen­tic Korean spa ex­pe­ri­ence, in which highly trained beauty pro­fes­sion­als pro­vide tra­di­tional Korean treat­ments for the face and body, us­ing only Korean prod­ucts. It was a win­ner of the Her World Spa Awards 2016 for Best Acu­pres­sure Mas­sage for its Kyung-rak Body Treat­ment.
