Facial Acupuncture
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.

Facial massage is a non-invasive treatment that can benefit the following:


TMJ dysfunction

Bells Palsy

Sinus problems

Facial Massage promotes:

Lymphatic drainage and detoxification of skin and organ systems

Preventative maintenance for aging and skin blemishes

Balance, clarity and focus

Toning and tightening the skin and fascia

This August Atlanta School of Massage will be offering the following workshops: Chinese Facial Fusion Massage and Indian Head, Face and Foot taught by Lolita Knight . Massage with Ayurvedic Oils taught by Wolfgang Luckmann. These techniques offer therapists and aestheticians additional tools that sooth, regenerate and provide pain relief for their clients. With several treatments clients can experience a non-invasive “facelift” and gain a more youthful appearance.

  1. I didn’t know that Asian massages deal with facials. Thanks for explaining how they can help bring back balance and relive you from migraines as well. My parents are looking to get Asian massages to relax and relieve some tension.
