Myofascial Face Massage: A Deep Dive into Natural Skincare

What is Myofascial Face Massage

With the skincare world buzzing about the latest treatments and techniques, the Myofascial Face Massage stands out. Dive deep into this holistic approach and see why it’s capturing the attention of beauty experts globally.

Unlike traditional massages that target the skin’s surface, the Myofascial face massage technique delves deeper, focusing on the fascia – the connective tissue situated between muscles.

When to Consider Myofascial Face Massage

Prevention Of Aging

Myofascial face massage rejuvenates by strengthening facial muscles, preserving beauty, and offering a non-surgical alternative to maintaining youthful skin.

Facial Swelling

Myofascial massage promotes lymphatic drainage in the skin’s upper layer, effectively reducing swelling and congestion.

Sagging Face

The massage eases muscle tension, enhancing facial contours and improving skin appearance by boosting lymph and blood flow.

Double Chin

Targeting muscles in the upper back, neck, and shoulders, this massage prevents lymph accumulation, addressing the issue of a double chin.

Improve Blood Flow 

The massage stimulates blood flow, delivering vital nutrients and oxygen, rejuvenating muscles and skin for improved structure and health.

Reduced Skin Elasticity

By enhancing the connective tissue and muscle tone, and improving cell blood circulation, myofascial massage revives elasticity and prompts regeneration.

What to Expect from a Myofascial Massage Session?

Myofascial facial massage considers rejuvenation through the release of facial muscles from pathological overstrain by acting on the fascia, and this is a distinctive feature of the massage. Myofascial massage is considered the most effective way to restore lost contours and oval of the face, as well as remove obvious age-related changes. Wrinkles, folds, swelling, sagging skin and other negative changes are caused by disorders that develop under the skin. This is where they need to be addressed. This is an excellent alternative to plastic surgery, injections and other cosmetic procedures.

The session consists of 4 stages:

  1. Cleansing the skin of decorative cosmetics and other contaminants.
  2. Work with the body, depending on the client’s needs.
  3. Myofascial facial massage.
  4. Applying SPF cream

Benefits for your Body

Originating from the broader realm of myofascial release therapy, this face massage focuses on releasing tension in the fascia – the connective tissue enveloping muscles and organs. This gentle yet profound approach stimulates collagen production, promotes circulation, and results in a refreshed and youthful appearance.

After the course, wrinkles in the forehead area almost completely disappear, “crow’s feet” in the eye area disappear, the nasolabial triangle is smoothed out and the “double chin” is corrected

The number of procedures and the program are compiled individually depending on the tasks being solved and the client’s needs.

An additional advantage of the “Myofascial Facial Massage” course is that each session includes myofascial massage of the cervical-collar zone. Massage of the cervical-collar zone, which includes a massage of the neck, shoulder girdle, upper back to the angle of the shoulder blades. It will help relieve tension from the muscles of the neck and shoulders. When the muscles of the neck are relaxed, blood and lymph circulation improves, brain cells receive the necessary oxygen and trace elements more efficiently. Blood supply will improve, sleep will improve, overall tone and performance will increase.

Neck-collar zone massage

Neck-collar zone massage is a procedure that allows relieving tension in the neck and shoulder muscles. When the neck muscles are relaxed, blood and lymph circulation improves, and brain cells receive the necessary oxygen and microelements more effectively.

Work with Thoracoabdominal diaphragm

The thoracoabdominal diaphragm is an unpaired muscle that separates the thoracic and abdominal cavities, serving to expand the lungs. Roughly, its boundary can be drawn along the lower edge of the ribs.

The diaphragm is linked to the muscular and fascial chains of the body, and tension within it can even lead to facial asymmetry.

The diaphragm acts as a piston, causing movement of the organs in the chest and abdomen, creating a vibrational wave. It must function well to prevent stagnant processes within the body. However, if it functions poorly, we deal with stagnant processes, disruption of venous and lymphatic flow, which affects the HEALTH of the entire body and also causes undesirable facial swelling!

Additionally, the thoracoabdominal diaphragm directly influences the body’s youthfulness. When it is compressed, stooping is intensified, and the neck becomes shorter.  

Working with the diaphragm yields a powerful effect – posture improves, shoulders straighten, tension is released from the neck, and even facial proportions are harmonized. 

Work with the bones of the face 

Working with the bones of the face and skull is based on osteotechnics, and this procedure is very pleasant and relaxing. As we age, the bones in our face tend to shift towards the nose, while the bones in the skull dry out and decrease in size. This can lead to facial asymmetry, the appearance of jowls, a second chin, drooping eyelids, nasolabial folds, and wrinkles…

Superficial facial massage, and “beauty injections” cannot address the underlying causes of these problems. Instead, a deeper approach is required to return the bones to their physiological position, improve their nutrition, and promote “breathing” through the cranial sutures. By addressing these issues, it is possible to restore a more youthful appearance to the face.
