Stress is reflected in the face when facial muscles become tense and
tighten. Unconsciously, we contort our face and creases appear across
the surface of the skin as the pressures of the day intensify. Chinese
Facial Massage is a relaxing and rejuvenating facial massage engaging
25 pressure points as taught by Dr. Lilly Fu, a Chinese doctor, to
Lolita Knight (who has certified Debbie DeNardo). Techniques are
learned and experienced that help tone, uplift, remove tension, reduce
facial lines and increase circulation to the face. Facial massage can
benefit Bells Palsy, facial tics, eye droop, sinus problems, eyesight (near and far), and TMJ problems.
The treatment begins by targeting specific pressure points on the face
without the use of lotion or oil. This not only relaxes the facial
muscles but stimulates the lymph drainage system, thereby removing
excess fluid and waste products.
The honey pat sequence involves the application of pure honey, a
natural product which is a humectant, meaning it attracts and retains
moisture. The techniques in this sequence help increase skin
circulation, plump fine lines and improve overall skin tone.
Non-invasive, external TMJ techniques work to reduce jaw pain and
increase mandible mobility. According to the American Academy of
Craniofacial Pain, "As high as 20% of the American population possesses
one or more of the symptoms of a temporomandibular disorder.” The TMJ
techniques in this course are effective and easy to learn.
Rejuvenation and relaxation strokes (with the use of another natural
product, macadamia nut oil) further relieve tension in the face, smooth
away lines and bring elasticity back to the skin.
Facial massage is an excellent addition to your massage offerings. It
can be added in full or in part at the end of a massage therapy session
for a pampering conclusion. This course is suitable for massage therapy
students as well as seasoned massage therapists and estheticians who
would like to expand their repertoire and boost their income. It is a
great idea to offer this service as gift certificates for Mother’s Day,
Christmas, birthdays, anniversaries, Valentine’s Day and other special occasions.
This is a hands-on workshop with demonstration and practice.
Participants will examine each other while looking in a mirror before
the facial massages so that “before and after” comparisons can be made.
They often notice a difference in their appearance at the end of the
class session with major differences usually noticed two days after
treatment. At the completion of this workshop you will be able to
perform a Chinese Facial Massage and with the hands-on experience will
also know how it feels to receive one.
