Many people are aware of the benefits of massage for the body. The typical massage client utilizes massage for relaxation, to quicken recovery after work-outs, sporting events or to assist in injury care. But these same benefits that our bodies experience from having regular massage also hold true for the musculature of the face & scalp.
A good facial massage, not a skin facial that focuses on the care of the skin (typically done by an esthetician), but a facial massage, where an LMP works the individual muscles of the face and scalp, works through the soft tissues that lie under the skin, is a fantastic way to get that beautiful healthy appearance to our face. A good facial massage increases your circulation, breaks free any adhesions , works through any hypertensity in the jaw , brow or scalp musculature. The results are feeling and looking great. By working these internal structures, your skin actually benefits. It’s a very holistic way to achieve a wonderful vital appearance.
I usually hear from clients in addition to the benefits above, that it is so relaxing and wonderful to receive a facial massage. My newer clients, who are very used to receiving full body massage, LOVE the facial massage. It’s typically something they have not experienced before and they are so very relaxed at the end of the session.
So, next time you schedule a massage, try treating your face. The full hour massage for the facial massage is really great, but if you want to dabble, maybe schedule a 90-minute service and use that last half hour for a facial massage, after you’ve had some bodywork. You’ll become a fan! This service is also a unique & blissful gift for your spouse, teen-age daughter, or the bride-to-be.
Wishes for excellent health and wellness,
