Facial Massage for the Purpose of Toning and Firming

Just like any other form of massage, facial massage relieves tension, promotes relaxation and restores energy to your face and body by increasing circulation. When you first wake up in the morning you may notice that your skin looks puffier and paler than it did the night before. This is because during sleep, circulation is decreased in the body which means there is less blood flow to the face. Facial massage is a great way to get the blood flowing again and to achieve a healthy glow. These remarkable facial massages also work to tighten and lift the facial muscles, giving the skin a much more youthful appearance. It's no wonder it has been called this year’s BEST anti-aging treatment!

Massage therapy is an ancient form of healing. It has been suggested that getting regular facial massages can keep the skin looking young, smoother, firmer and more beautiful. Massage accomplishes this by releasing tension, minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, increasing circulation, tightening facial muscles, normalizing the moisture balance, reducing impurities and toxins, and increasing radiance.

A facial massage session usually lasts about 20 minutes. Special care must be taken as well for people with sensitive skin. Sensitive skin is more easily damaged or irritated so the therapist must be careful not to exert too much pressure during the massage.

The therapist works to increase circulation and reduce tension in the face by softly working the different areas of the face. The forehead and nose are targeted to reduce the appearance of horizontal lines. The nostrils are massaged to unclog pores and prevent blemishes. The mouth and cheeks are rubbed to help prevent wrinkles and sagging of the facial muscles. The area around the eyes is massaged to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and heavy bags under the eyes. The chin and neck are targeted to promote muscle tone and prevent sagging skin. This is good for preventing the dreaded double chin. Finally, the ears are gently massaged and pulled because they have pressure points that stimulate other areas of the body. The movement of the fingers is always done in an upward motion, which when done regularly, facial massage will keep your skin looking tight and youthful.

An all-encompassing 20 minute Facial Massage, followed by Steam, Extractions and a light Microdermabrasion is the NEW Anti-Aging Rage. 1 Hour and ½ Hour appointments available.
