Buccal Facial Massage

Natural Anti-ageing Treatment
Face Massage

Experience this truly unique therapeutic facial experience, known as the “ultimate facelift alternative” without going under the knife.

 

This is a relaxing non-invasive facial massage treatment that helps release tension in

the neck and face. When facial muscles stiffen due to stress, injury or overactive jaw,

they obstruct blood flow, lymphatic drainage and detoxification. These issues can

cause pain, wrinkles, dark circles and puffiness.

Buccal massage involves massaging pressure points inside the mouth to stimulate the

muscles and ligaments in the buccal fat pad (between cheeks and jaw) to tighten and

contour the area. To help with boosting blood flow to the area, facial cupping is used in

this treatment. A gua sha stone is used in helping to trigger lymphatic drainage and

release tension in the jaw.

 

Description of this 60 minute treatment

The buccal massage begins with cleansing the skin, followed by massaging the

décoletté. Once tension is released, the therapist moves onto the face with relaxing,

delicate moves. Following this is the manual lymphatic drainage and use of facial cups,

both of which increase blood flow. Then begins the facial massage portion, think of it as

a workout for your face! This helps to increase circulation and oxygen to your face. The

intraoral massage is next, which targets the muscles inside the mouth to release

tension. To assist in promoting healing, a gua sha is used, followed by a head

massage.

This treatment will improve muscle tone and eliminate tension creating a lifted

appearance.
