Course content:

This facial Massage course combines the use of lifting and muscle stabilisation techniques, facial acupressure and advanced facial massage techniques.

Facial massage decreases anxiety and reduce stress and uplift the mood.

Daily stress often results in tension buildup in the muscles causing lines, wrinkles and signs of ageing. Facial massage can help relax tight and drawn muscles and decreasing lines that they form. Massage combined with oils can also help minimise lines and dryness.

Therapeutic facial massage can help relieve allergy symptoms, such as sinus congestion. A buildup of mucus in the sinus areas can result in pressure, puffiness and headaches. Gentle massage helps to mobilise secretions, improve drainage and relieve congestion.

Massaging the face stimulates the lymphatic vessels and facilitates toxin elimination from the facial area.

This is an advanced one day course for qualified massage Therapists wishing to develop their skills further.
