Facial Acupressure to Rejuvenate Your Skin
Acupressure is a technique used in ancient Chinese medicine that focuses on specific points used in acupuncture to balance energy and treat a number of physical ailments. The main difference between the two practices is that, while they both benefit your health, acupressure uses finger pressure and doesn’t require the use of needles.
In many instances, acupressure can be just as beneficial as traditional acupuncture to balance energy pathways in the body and stimulate detoxification. Not only will this benefit muscles, nerves, and aching joints, but it can stimulate circulation and rejuvenate aging skin.
Facial Acupressure Benefits
Make no mistake that facial acupressure is dramatically different from a typical facial massage.
While a facial massage can be used to tighten and tone sagging skin, facial acupressure uses deep tissue massage and manipulation of the face and neck; this therapy will stimulate muscle fibers and nerves to boost collagen production underneath the surface of the skin. Since collagen is a substance that keeps skin firm and supple, using facial acupressure regularly can visibly lift and revitalize tired and wrinkled skin.
Other Potential Benefits of Facial Acupressure treatment:
- Relieves stress and tension headaches
- Smooth deep expression lines on the forehead.
- Tones the thin, delicate skin around the lips to reduce fine lines and creases
- Can be used to relax the eyes, to reduce squinting and prevent crow’s feet from forming.
- Helps to balance the body.
Not only is facial acupressure relaxing to relieve tension after a long, hard day of work, it will also help to sooth and regenerate dull, damaged skin. By receiving regular facial acupressure session, you will feel and look like your best self!
