Facial Massage: Relieve Hurts Sooner

What is the first thing you see in the morning when you look in the mirror? Your face! That is what everyone else sees when they first see you. Do you feel like time has treated you badly? Or maybe you just feel like you need a refreshing look. Is your skin dry and tight? Do you have that dreaded high school reunion coming up? Here’s what you need. A facial massage!

Massage is the manipulation of superficial layers of muscle and connective tissue. This is done to enhance function and promote relaxation and well-being. If you are looking to modern medicine to cure your issues, maybe you are looking in the wrong place. The art of massage dates way back, back to over 3000 years. It has been documented by the ancient Hindus, Persians and Egyptians. They all applied forms of massage for many ailments. Hippocrates even wrote papers recommending the use of rubbing and friction for joint and circulatory problems. Facial massage is recorded far back in other cultures, but the Western version is a recent twentieth century innovation. Many European practitioners have come to the US recently to teach others.

Does your face feel dry? I often feel like my face needs more moisture, and I’m sure, unless you have particularly oily skin, you do. Blemishes? Fine lines, red lines and skin one and texture can be reduced by massage. A facial massage can also reverse the signs of aging. It sure beats botox!

Wait, don’t go for that invasive facelift. Try Indian facial massage, otherwise known as facial rejuvenation. This massage will be gentle and will release stress in facial muscles. With the release of this stress, our face will relax, helping our face to look younger, more relaxed, less stressed. We all know the stress of everyday life. This shows on our faces.

Do you think this is the limit of a facial massage? No, there are other benefits. Do you notice how your child’s skin glows? It is so soft and beautiful, it is blemish free and not in the least bit puffy. Healthy skin is an indication of a healthy body and mind. Collagen production is increased, and this helps to diminish wrinkles. It also tightens the flesh under the chin, thereby eliminating a double chin, which, incidentally, occurs in slim as well as fat people.

As a mother, I take care of the children first. By the time they have their sunscreen and hats on, they have their snack, start playing, I have forgotten about my own. If they get red, I bring them in. Until I look in the mirror the next day, I realize I have forgotten to put my own on. So there I am with a red face. I’m glad to know that I just need to wait until it dies down, then go for a facial massage. This will help calm the redness. I feel confident that after I have a facial massage, I can hold my own against these women with whom I hang out!
