Indian Face Massage

Indian Face Massage is a natural facelift by way of massage. It is designed to be a non-invasive, gentle approach to appearing younger. It works mainly by freeing constrictions both within the facial muscles and in the connective tissue. Strain can build up in the facial muscles without us realizing it. Under such conditions muscles can actually “dry up” and contract, inhibiting freedom of expression. This can encourage ageing and the formation of wrinkles as the face loses its muscle tone and elasticity and begins to sag.

Benefits

Gifting yourself a good face massage helps relieve headaches, anxiety and fatigue. Face massage can also highly enhance your appearance by improving your complexion and leaving your face looking fresher. Use fine face oil so you don’t drag your skin. (If you have oily skin, wash your face after the massage). You can fit a massage in at any time: a stimulating one first thing in the morning, or a soothing one in the evening. Try to change the movements: fast and brisk for a rejuvenating effect or slow and smooth if you want a calming effect. Repeat each movement as often as you like.

How to do a Face Massage?

Put your hands over your face, with fingers on the forehead and the heels of the hands on the chin. Hold on for a moment. Then, very gently and slowly, draw them out toward your ears.

Tilt your head to one side. Using the back of your hands, stroke from the collarbone to the chin, one hand following the other. Tilt your head to the left and stroke up the right side of your neck. Then repeat the same on the other side. Stroke firmly to stimulate the circulation and help keep the skin on your neck firm.

Stroke from the corners of your mouth to your ears. Use one hand on each cheek and move them both out together. Then, both hands on one side, stroke from your mouth to your ear, using the back of your fingers.

Make circular pressure over the forehead, working from the bridge of your nose to the temples, to cover the whole forehead up to your hairline. Press firmly, but do not drag your skin. Then stroke your forehead gently with your fingertips to soothe it after the last stimulating movement.
