Face Massage with the Massage Mitts
It is designed to be a gentle non-invasive approach to looking younger by releasing tight fascial tissue, increasing tissue oxygenation and localised blood flow.
It works primarily by freeing constrictions both within the facial muscles and in the connective tissue.
Tension can build up within our facial muscles from the pressures of everyday life without us realising it. It can be easy for certain thoughts and emotions to become habitual, locking themselves into expressions on our faces - sometimes over the duration of a whole lifetime. Under such conditions muscles can actually “dry up” and contract, inhibiting freedom of expression. This can encourage ageing and the formation of wrinkles as the face loses its muscle tone and elasticity and begins to sag.
Through gentle massage of the face, we can help to delay the ageing process and make you more relaxed to deal with the stress of daily living.
This is achieved by using simple massage techniques and energy balancing, thereby giving the facial muscles a lift and a new lease of life.
Facial Pain can be caused by but not limited to:
- Muscle spasm
- Scar tissue
- Tension Headaches
- Trigeminal neuralgia (nerve pain)
- Temporomandibular (TMJ) joint dysfunction
- Bell's palsy

How to Put the Massage Mitts on
Apply massage oil to area you wish to massage. If your skin is dry you may need two coverings of oil. Rub the excess oil around your hand so the mitts glide onto your hands. Massage each body section for about 5-10 mins
An alternative is to use them in the shower or bath with you usual shower and bath products. Wet the skin then apply the soap or shower gel, gentle massage the chosen area on the body for 2-5 minutes then wash the soap off.
