Massage Your Way to Facial Tone?

Sunday, February 08, 2009

As I was scouring Amazon for spa related books and DVDs, one caught my eye: Facelift at your Fingertips by Pierre Jean Cousin. I found this to be a very intriguing premise as I was specifically looking for books that could describe techniques for facial massage. A used book dealer was willing to part with their copy for a pittance, so I decided to order the book.

It arrived Tuesday, when I was home from work sick as a dog with the flu. Part of the issue I had was extreme headache. I flipped through the book, which details what carrier oils and essential oils are suited to massage your face with, dependent upon your skin type. What followed was a detailed pictorial of your acupressure points on your face, and a step by step facial massage. I skimmed the information on which points assist with headache, got myself a warm washcloth, and started putting to use the information in the book. Wow, I felt better. I repeated the "need areas" prior to bedtime, and I bounced right back into he land of the living!

That experience alone would lead me to believe that an in-depth look at the contents of the book is in order. The information in the book appears to be very harmonious with what I have known before, and is presented logically. The step by step massage technique is easy to follow, even for an acupressure novice. And the before / after pictures of ladies who have tried this technique have me willing to jump start the six week program to facial health.

I highly suggest this book - particularly as it can be acquired inexpensively. I can see how it would be far less expensive and invasive than the blade, and that alone is well worth the time investment in massage.

    Thanks for doing the research for us.
    Can you find something to make my saggy neck look better?
    I think I'm a fine looking woman but I hate my neck!
    I think it's worse because I have lost and regained 20-30 pounds a few times.
