Anti-ageing facial massage in detail
Effleurage originates from the French “to skim” and “to touch lightly ” and prepares face for a massage in slow rhytm and with gentle pressure. Small circular movements follow, upwards and outwards, to increase blood flow and radiance and smooth out uneven skin surface.
Gentle pinching and light tapping, outwards and upwards, introduces rhythmic compression of the tissue and stimulates nerves endings as well as contracts capillaries. It is particularly beneficial for sensitive skin types – light superficial tapping induces cooling effect.
Fan-like movement on the jawline is a rhytmic variation on the “petrissage technique”. Originating from the French word “to knead”, it requires lifting and rolling tissue vertically and works on the dermal layer of the skin.
