According to Chinese Medicine, balance and harmony in the body is maintained by qi energy flowing through the body’s meridians between the organs.
Your organs help to promote health and vitality in the body. When the body’s meridians are stimulated using acupressure or acupuncture, the flow of qi can be adjusted and directed to specific parts of the body.
Our acupressure facial treatment stimulates the facial acupressure points, which can help to improve skin tone, increase blood circulation and promote a healthy metabolism in the skin. The result is healthy, smooth and glowing skin, which is both relieved of congestion, and relaxed.
Facial acupressure addresses the face from within to create a glowing exterior. This includes helping to tone the facial muscles, balancing the energy flow, encouraging general wellness and stimulating circulation. As many of the body’s meridians run through the face, acupressure facial treatment can dramatically improve the health and aesthetic of the face.
Some acupressure points of the face which can promote facial health and vitality include:
Third eye point: Located between the eyebrows, the third eye point stimulates the pituitary gland, which helps to enhance and improve the condition of the skin.
Facial beauty point: The facial beauty point is located on either side of the nose at the bottom of the cheekbone, and can improve skin circulation, pigmentation, swelling and skin tone.
Heavenly appearance point: Located behind the curve of the jaw, the heavenly appearance point (also known as the glow point) can help to improve skin lustre and health, and the overall muscle tone of the face.
Heavenly pillar point: This acupressure point is located at the base of the skull, where it meets the spine. This can help to alleviate stress to the skin, calming skin ailments like acne and irritation. It can also provide stress relief to other parts of the body, helping with problems like sleep, eye strain and exhaustion.
