Benefits of Facial Massage

The benefits of facial massage are discovered by women and men (whether or not they admit it), and have been understood for centuries. Ancient cultures of Asians, Romans, Greeks, and Indians realized the benefits of these techniques and incorporated face massage routines into everyday life.

In more modern times, scientists and those who study the effects of touch, write about the proven health and beauty benefits of massage therapy. Most agree that easing the fears and anxiety associated with everyday life greatly impacts the quality of life, as well as our outlook on the future.

Skin stimulation can cause an increase in blood circulation, increasing those healing components of the blood, and making us feel renewed and recharged.

The therapist will create a very peaceful environment for the massage. But, the most important part is for the client to shut off of the brain in order to deeply relax and release tension.

In the perfect environment, the massage room should be quiet, comfortable, uncluttered and serene.

Relaxing music should be playing and the use of essential oils or aromatherapy  may be offered, or suggested for the session.

During the massage, the focus for the therapist is to be consistently present with you, the client, and to utilize various relaxing massage techniques.

He/she may make circular motions on the face, upward sweeping motions, or may cradle the entire head to promote a feeling of security and well-being. The therapist may also use aromatic steam on the face to help the client relax and encourage deep breathing.
