Japanese Facial Massage is a offshoot of Anma, which is the traditional system of massage in Japan. This system of facial massage is part of the ancient teachings of Oriental Medicine and has been refined by the beauty and cosmetology industry in Japan for over 200 years. This system is now considered a separate discipline in and of its self. Japanese Facial Massage uses the concepts of Oriental Medicine combined with four distinct stages of techniques to improve one's complexion, remove toxins from the face, prevent and remove facial wrinkles and age spots and balance one's emotions and Ki (life force). This improves one's overall health. Japanese Facial Massage produces the equivalent to an acupuncture face lift without the insertion of needles. Unlike facial surgery, Japanese Facial Massage has no ill side effects. Anyone from infant to the elderly adult can benefit from Japanese Facial Massage. It is a very effective method of facial care. It can be applied any place and at anytime.
Health And Beauty
In Japan beauty is considered equal to the optimal state of health. Even the most attractively shaped face cannot be beautiful if the person is not well. Health and beauty are not separate. When a person glows with the radiance of true health, nothing else is necessary for genuine beauty. Oriental Medicine teaches that there are three major factors to true health: physical health, psychological health, and spiritual health. According to this ancient tradition, beauty arises naturally if a person can bring these three factors into harmony. The intent of Japanese Facial Massage is to help prolong this natural, true health and beauty and to prevent disease.
