In a serene beach side studio, nestled near the water at Bronte Beach, lies Zen Facial – the treatment room of Eastern remedial therapies expert Fumi Yamamoto. Less beauty therapist and more healer, Yamamoto is qualified in Japanese remedial diagnostic yoga, Zen Shiatsu, meridian therapy, aromatherapy, myofascial release, lymphatic drainage, reflexology and neurological repatterning. Offering a facial that begins at the feet and ends with Yamamoto sculpting the face with her hands for her famous ‘chiselling’ – a method used to pronounce cheekbones and generate a smoother brow. The perfect pre-event ritual – or for whenever you feel the need to give your face some overdue TLC – Yamamoto’s facials are a true mind-body experience.
