The use of a facial kit comprising of various steps from cleansing to toning, massage and nourishment that employs the use of a series of hand movement techniques to relax muscles and improve blood circulation has been discovered.
At present, we may have more access to beauty products but the only difference is that some of the biggest wellness brands are manufacturing facial kits that work best coupled with specific hand massage techniques. It is believed that the facial appearance acts as a reflection of the internal condition of a body and this is the basic theory behind TCM. For instance, if one is suffering from kidney deficiency it shows up as under-eye dark deep circles. This is when massage alone cannot treat it internally though it can help reduce and relax the face by alleviating puffiness, dullness, sagging and lines.
Does this mean that we are ignoring such signs on our face for long? And if we are then we need to respond to it with treatments from the inside out using TCM or Ayurveda. Indulging in weekly tension-release body massages does help but the need for monthly facial messages is equally essential to avoid a stagnant, sluggish and dull complexion.
