Facial massage also referred to as facial acupressure or “facelift” massage has numerous therapeutic possibilities in addition to enhancing skin’s appearance. Facial massage by trained aestheticians and massage therapists can facilitate relaxation and boost collagen production promoting a more youthful look. Toxic buildup and trapped energy are released while circulation is increased within the facial muscles and tissues.
Japanese, Chinese and Indian facial massage each address balancing of the meridians (energy pathways) while applying slight pressure to acupressure or marma points . Marma points are the Ayurvedic equivalent of the Chinese acupressure system. “Champi” or Indian head massage has been used for centuries by Indian mothers to stimulate hair growth and relaxation. Visual and physical results can be noticeable after just a few treatments.
