Cosmetic Massage

Thursday, 02 July 2009

cosmetic massageMassage is one of the oldest, simplest forms of therapy and is a system of stroking, pressing and kneading different areas of the body to relieve pain, relax, stimulate, and tone the body. Massage does much more than create a pleasant sensation on the skin, it also works on the soft tissues including muscles, tendons, and ligaments to improve muscle tone. Although it largely affects those muscles just under the skin, its benefits may also reach the deeper layers of muscle and possibly even the organs themselves.

Cosmetic massage copes with some problems that may be corrected with the hands of cosmetologist. It helps to extend youth and stop the time of ageing. It makes the skin elastic, removes edema, perfects the face oval and gives the ideal complexion.

The targeted age for such massages start from 28. The process of ageing is in the early stage and it can be suspended. On the top of it, anti-ageing creams have more effect.

Another indication is the impairment of sebaceous glands when the skin gets dry or greasy. However, the massage is strictly forbidden with inflammatory processes of the skin, like dermatitis, herpes, eczema, fungi since you have the risk to spread the infection. Also avoid massaging dehydrated skin, otherwise you risk to get wrinkles.

Apply creams or essences to move smoothly. If you have dry skin, then apply jasmine, Camomile or ylang-ylang essences. You make your greasy skin happy if you use eucalyptus oil, juniper, lemon or essence of bergamot. Normal skin will be enjoyed with sandalwood, patchouli, lavender and cedar oils. With the ageing skin add some sagy clary oil to the basic essence you chose.

Remember that the massage is made along the lines of the less skin extent:

  • from the center of forehead to temples,
  • from eyebrows to the hair lines,
  • from nasals and center of the upper lip to the temples,  
  • from the mouth corners to the center of auricles,
  • from the chin to the earlobes,
  • from the center of nose to its wings.

So, let's start it. First, clean the skin, put the hot compress on the face, hide the hair, sit down and absolutely relax facial muscles.

Consider what areas should be paid more attention, i.e. massage? Forehead wrinkles are the steadiest ones, they can appear even when you are in your innocent 15. Smooth these wrinkles as well. Stroke the forehead upwards, from the center of forehead to temples in spiral-like movements, and to the hair line. Rub the skin of the forehead zigzagging from the left to right temple. Tap the skin vertically, then horizontally.

The important note - do not shift kinds of massages. First do spiral-like movements, then go to zigzagging strokes. By the way, remember that force and tissue stretching is forbidden.

Another important movement is snail in the form of spiral twisted to inside. It is good for the forehead as well as for cheeks lifting the drooping skin. The hanging skin at cheeks will also like the «grid» in the form of light pinches vertically, from the lower jaw to the jugal bridge, and horizontally from the wings of nose, mouth corners and the chin to auricles.

Pinches are effective massaging movements. Practice on wrinkles taking the skin with two fingers perpendicular to wrinkles and going along the wrinkles pinching the skin.

At the end of the procedure tap all massage lines with finger pads.

Ideally, you need several exercises to strengthen facial muscles. There is a range of movements, they are easy to perform, yet, they are effective. Perform massage and exercises regularly several times a week, and your face skin will be rejuvenated for the long time.

And finally, today the most popular cosmetic procedure is the rejuvenating facial massage. Massage procedures made at home are not that effective unlike the professional procedures, but first, you know and feel your skin better than anyone, second, you can control your force and tension of movements, and, third, with regular massages, you have the chance to find the most effective movements to create the individual program for you.

Should the massage done wrongly and unprofessionally, you face the consequences alone with your skin since incompetent massage cause more severe problems than you have now. Never endure unpleasant feelings during massaging and inform the master about the intensity of movements. On the top of it, if you feel that the masseur stretches and injure your skin, you'd better stop taking his services. Your health deserves to require what you and your skin wants.
