Japanese anti-aging facial massage, also known as “Japanese facelift”, is an ancestral technique, halfway between aesthetic treatment and facial massage, the objective of which is to revitalize the skin.
Known for its anti-aging benefits, this massage is now a must for fans of natural and holistic beauty. Created in Japan in the 15th century, it is based on two fundamental principles: the stimulation of blood and lymphatic circulation, and the balancing of qi, vital energy.
By working on all the facial muscles, this massage stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, two essential components for keeping the skin firm and elastic. It also promotes the transport of oxygen and nutrients to skin cells, helping to keep the skin healthy and preventing the appearance of signs of aging.
The maneuvers used are:
This massage is a subtle dance of movements, touches, kneading, tapping and pressure exercised with millimeter precision. The movements are performed in sequence, with particular attention paid to relaxation and revitalization of the skin and facial muscles
These movements are performed by gently sliding the fingers across the face to relax the muscles and stimulate circulation. Smoothing is often used on frown lines and forehead lines. Gentle, slow movements are used to relax these tense areas and to help fade wrinkles.
Kneading are deeper movements, which are used to tone the facial muscles. For nasolabial folds and neck and mouth wrinkles, moderate pressure and kneading motions can help relax these muscles, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and improve facial contour.
Tapping stimulates the skin and increases blood circulation. This maneuver can be used on the entire face to improve the skin's radiance. Lighter, faster pats are often used on the delicate crow's feet area to stimulate circulation without pulling on the skin.
These movements help unblock energy channels and reduce muscle tension. By applying gentle but firm pressure with fingers or palms to specific energy points on the face, tension can be released and energy flow can be improved.
They stimulate lymphatic circulation, promote the elimination of toxins and cellular regeneration. Vibrations can be applied to the entire face, but are particularly beneficial for the facial contour, where they can improve the elasticity and firmness of the skin.
These quick tapping movements help tone and firm the skin. They are generally used on areas of the face where the skin tends to sag, such as the facial contour or the neck. Percussion can stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, promoting a firmer, more youthful appearance to the skin.
It is suitable for both men and women and is suitable for all ages. It allows the person to listen more to their body and accept it in its entirety.
