FACIAL ACUPRESSURE & CUPPING
Acupressure facial treatment focuses on your face, head and neck. Unlike acupuncture, which uses thin needles, acupressure involves applying light physical pressure to activate facial acupressure points and muscles in order to:
- increase qi and blood circulation,
- relieve stress, tension,
- promote a healthy metabolism in the skin,
- flushes out toxins,
- toning and relaxing muscles,
- helps the skin regain its natural ability to contract,
- appearance of natural facelift.
Stimulating facial acupressure points helps restore vitality to the face and promotes the health of the entire body, as many of the body’s meridians run through the face. Acupressure massage can also be beneficial for relieving headaches or facial edema.
For even better results, I like to finish off with facial cupping using soft silicone cups designed especially for that. Facial cupping does not cause bruising, as it often happens in body cupping. The benefit of facial cupping is that it brings qi and blood to the facial muscles, helping to stimulate collagen and elastin production.
The treatment is deeply relaxing and will leave you feeling refreshed and revitalised. In addition to tension release, the benefits include increased blood supply to the face, improved lymphatic drainage, stimulation of collagen production, which is linked to the rejuvenation of the skin and underlying structures, and a reduction in nasal and sinus congestion.
It is a very safe treatment and beneficial for those with chronic conditions, as it is calming for the nervous system.
