The Benefits of Massage for Your Skin

Used for centuries, massage therapy treats multiple health issues including those that affect the quality of facial skin. Different types of manipulation of the tissues and muscles applied to the face could include Japanese shiatsu, myofascial release, or manual lymph drainage. They all contribute to a firmer and improved complexion. Below are some of the problems that can be eliminated with frequent massages.

Wrinkles - When the skin loses its flexibility or suppleness, wrinkles start to form. Many factors can cause them, such as habitual expressions, environmental pollution as well as lifestyle and poor nutrition. The longer you live; the more likely you are to get creases upon your face.

However, a massage can help to decrease the appearance of the wrinkles over time. Therapy in the form of a facial massage will be able to bring blood flow to the area, encourage the body to increase its collagen, as well as help diminish the visual aspects of crow’s feet and laugh lines.         

Detoxification - A layer of dead skin cells will leave the skin with a dull cast to it. Contaminates from the environment can build up on the face, without a person realizing it, until one day they look in the mirror and they look tired.

A massage can remove the debris that accumulates on the skin. This action will leave the skin looking rejuvenated, brighter and capable of absorbing creams and lotions better.           

Acne Scars - People with acne are thrilled when the blemishes are gone; however, the problem can still be present in the form of scars and discoloration. This condition can make individuals feel self-conscious.

To get youthful, radiant looking skin, schedule an appointment with a certified professional at the LaVida of Raleigh, NC today.
