While we may indulge in the occassional full body massage, the face and neck area are often neglected. Our faces are full of nerves and pressure points just as the rest of our bodies, so it makes sense that we should pay attention to this area as well! Daily stress can result in tension building up in the muscles of the face. Foreheads furrow and lines will form between the brows and along the lip line.
The mental and emotional benefits of facial massage include decreased anxiety, mood improvement and stress reduction. From a physical standpoint, facial massage reduces swelling in the nasal area from congestion, mobilizes secretions and improves drainage. It stimulates the lymphatic vessels and facilitates the elimination of toxins. You will actually FEEL better from facial massage.
However, the aesthetic benefits are also highly favorable. It increases blood flow and the release of more oxygen, effectively allowing for the creation and continuation of collagen production. Massaging the face softens expression-induced lines around the eyes, lips and brows and helps release acne-causing toxins. It also de-puffs and brightens the eye area. When used in tandem with the appropriate skin care topicals, it provides deeper penetration of skin care products. AND it is excellent for both dry and oily skin. It is truly an amazing experience that results in healtier skin.
We invite you to experience all of the benefits of facial massage!
