Are you struggling with tired facial features that bother you and age you?
Do you have acne, infections, or other rashes on your facial skin?
Do you have bags under your eyes and more and more wrinkles on your face?
Is your nose often congested with sinusitis, or do you have trouble with your jaw muscles?
In fact, most people lead stressful lives, and without realizing it, they stock their bathroom cabinets with skin products and face masks to save time and look great quickly. Unfortunately, these means worsen the health of their skin by not eliminating toxins or tension from the face.
At Spa Mobile, we offer a facial massage service at home that helps relieve muscle tension, tone your face and release toxins to keep your skin fresh, youthful and wrinkle-free.
When you meet someone of a certain age with wrinkle-free, youthful facial skin, your first instinct is to ask yourself what products they are using. However, what not many people are aware of is applying a moisturizer, cleanser, or stimulating the skin, which is more important than the products.
Indeed, some of the beautiful skin we have encountered can be attributed, at least in part, to a simple yet super beneficial facial massage.
Incorporating the right facial massage techniques into your skincare routine can be the secret to not only looking better, but also a firmer, younger, and wrinkle-free face.
Facial massage improves circulation, bringing more blood cells to the skin, more oxygen, and better absorption of the products. Certain methods can also alleviate forehead wrinkles and reduce stress and headaches, minimizing frowning and the resulting wrinkles.
Rapid tissue stimulation invigorates your face and helps promote healthy skin. You will see the benefits like a glowing and firm complexion.
We recommend that you take the opportunity to massage your face every time you do your skincare routine, and we invite you to use our facial massage therapist services at least once a month to have glowing and youthful skin all the time.
If you want to get rid of your many wrinkles, our facial massage is more targeted at your wrinkles. It’s a slightly different technique.
We apply a face oil that best suits your skin type, whether dry and sensitive or oily. Then we apply pressure to the center of your forehead. This massage technique can help reduce frown lines on your forehead and help you get rid of stress and headaches, keeping you frowning.
If you have crow’s feet, there is a technique for that as well. We use our index finger to apply pressure to the bridge of our nose, just below the inside of the eyes. This technique can help you relax your eyes so that they stop squinting naturally, and it can also help prevent dark circles or bags from forming under your eyes.
Acne treatments are no longer just for teens, as many men and women in their 20s, 30s and older struggle with spots, pimples, and infected skin.
You may think that putting your hands on your face is the last thing you need to do to have better skin because your hands are often dirty. In fact, it is wrong!
If you do it or someone does it in the form of a facial massage, it reduces excess fluid, relieves tension and stimulates circulation. Plus, it can reduce stress levels by controlling the hormones that cause acne. All you need is a facial massage therapist, clean fingers, and some facial oil.
While many acne sufferers choose to see a dermatologist, having a facial massage in your home can also improve your skin. Our massage therapists typically use deep pore and tissue cleansing to rid your skin of excess oil and stimulate blood circulation.
Stimulating your skin with facial massage reduces the appearance of acne.
Nasal congestion is a common symptom of infections and allergies. Although congestion is not a serious medical problem, it can lead to a runny nose, facial pain, and headaches.
The sinuses are a network of small, hollow cavities inside the skull. The tissues inside the sinuses produce mucus, which normally drains into the nose. Sometimes these tissues become inflamed and swell with fluid. Inflamed sinuses cannot drain properly, allowing mucus and other fluids to build up in the nose. This build-up leads to nasal congestion.
The medical term for chronic nasal congestion is sinusitis. It is a common condition. Inflammation of the sinuses that causes nasal congestion can occur due to a viral respiratory infection or exposure to allergens or irritants.
Over-the-counter decongestants are effective treatments for nasal congestion. However, people who experience frequent congestion may want to try other treatment options.
Facial massaging your sinuses at home is a quick and easy method that you can use to relieve nasal congestion. As long as it is not an infectious case or acute stage of sinusitis, you can use our massage to relieve sinus pressure, discomfort and congestion. It also promotes mucus drainage, headache relief, and stimulation of blood circulation.
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the joint that connects your lower jaw to the temporal bone in your skull, allowing it to open, close, and move from side to side.
In between is a disc that is held in place by muscles and ligaments. It can also be the cause of jaw pain, also known as a temporomandibular joint disorder.
Jaw pain or pain in the face muscles are the most common symptoms, but not everyone suffers from them. Other symptoms include:
- Clicking or squealing when moving your jaw;
- Pain or muscle spasms in the head, neck or shoulders;
- Headache, earache and dizziness;
- Discomfort when chewing, speaking or yawning;
- Difficulty opening or closing the mouth comfortably.
Although the specific treatment for TMJ disorder depends on the cause, facial massage has been shown to relieve or help treat many of them.
Most people respond to stress by squeezing the jaw, neck, or shoulders, which causes muscles to contract and tighten. Although this is not the cause of the TMJ disorder, it can make it worse. Likewise, teeth grinding (bruxism) can cause a TMJ disorder, a symptom of both.
Massage can help with mental relaxation and muscle relaxation, breaking the cycle of tension and stress. It can also relieve symptoms of TMJ can be particularly effective when combined with jaw exercises.
Most people have a lot of strain on their faces. When you are stressed, tired, or focused, you contract your forehead and around your eyes, causing wrinkles over time.
A few minutes of facial massage at the end of the day helps you release that tension. One facial massage per month by a massage therapist is ideal, especially along the neck and jawline, to keep your skin taut, youthful and energetic.
Here are some benefits of a facial massage:
Releases toxins: The use of many beauty products, environmental factors, and the hustle and bustle of everyday life can cause toxins to build up in your skin, contributing to wrinkles, puffiness, and rashes. Facial massages increase blood circulation, stimulate lymphatic drainage in your face to remove waste and toxins to keep your skin fresh and clean, inside and out.
Stimulates circulation: Like doing a series of strength training exercises, the movement of a quick facial massage sends a surge of blood and oxygen to your skin. This increased flow deflates puffiness (especially in the area under the eyes), brightens skin tone, and helps detoxify your skin. More oxygen sent to your skin equals increased collagen production and cell growth, resulting in a smooth and glowing complexion.
Improves product absorption: Massaging your face with fingers up, lifting motions is a wonderful way to help your favourite products like moisturizer and serum be absorbed into your skin. Plus, it’s a way to make your daily skincare routine even more like a relaxing time to take care of yourself.
Relaxation and relaxation: Aside from skincare benefits, facial massages are just as effective in relieving emotional tension as they are in relieving muscle tension. They help you feel more relaxed and at ease at the end of a long day.
Massage therapists have touted the benefits of body massages for centuries as they relieve tension, improve circulation and improve flexibility, to name a few.
Lately, however, more and more experts in the skincare world have been touting the benefits of facial massages. Like a mini workout for your face, facial massages involve massaging major facial muscles and pressure points such as your jaw, cheekbones, and forehead using your hands or a stone roller.
You can do your own massage in just a few minutes a day and thus increase blood circulation, reduce puffiness and keep your skin fresh, youthful and wrinkle-free.
Sounds almost too good to be true?
We believe in it and our own experiences and views on what exactly facial massages are and the different techniques available. We see how real facial massages are against ageing and facial health.
The main target of facial massage is the lymph nodes under the ears and on the neck.
When these areas are obstructed, the lymphatic drainage becomes sluggish, resulting in a bloated and dull complexion. It really helps in draining the toxins, which can lead to flat gray skin.
Likewise, the act of manipulating and massaging the skin means increased blood flow to the area that is being massaged. More blood in the skin means more oxygen for the skin, and this blood flow also brings more nutrients. Just stimulating the skin stops being so lethargic and stimulates your fibroblasts to produce more collagen.
In addition, facial massage produces a release of muscle tension. We all have so much more tension these days, especially in our jaws. We spend the whole day squinting at small screens and clenching our jaws under stress. When you remove these knots and tensions, you get a noticeable increase in the firmness of your skin.
If you are in the Montreal area, the South Shore or the North Shore, we can come to your home to receive a facial massage according to your specific conditions.
We invite you to make an appointment with one of our massage therapists for a facial massage session at home.
