The Power of Kobido facial massage

Kobido is a traditional Japanese facial massage technique that is often referred to as the "facelift massage" or "natural facelift." It is a holistic approach to facial rejuvenation and relaxation that combines various massage and acupressure techniques. The word "Kobido" can be broken down into "ko" (small), "bi" (beauty), and "do" (path), indicating the path to small beauty.

Kobido massage typically involves a series of gentle, rhythmic, and precise hand movements applied to the face and neck. Some common techniques used in Kobido massage include:

  • Gentle pinching and kneading: The therapist uses their fingers and palms to gently pinch and knead the facial muscles and skin to improve circulation and release tension.
  • Circular and sweeping motions: Circular motions and sweeping strokes are applied to stimulate blood flow and lymphatic drainage, which can help reduce puffiness and promote a healthy complexion.
  • Acupressure points: Kobido massage often incorporates acupressure techniques, targeting specific pressure points on the face to balance the body's energy and promote overall well-being.
  • Tapping and percussion: Light tapping or percussion movements are used to invigorate the facial muscles and relax the client.
  • Benefits

    Kobido is not just about improving the appearance of the skin but also about enhancing overall health and well-being. It is believed to promote relaxation, relieve stress, and improve the flow of vital energy (called "qi" in Traditional Chinese Medicine) throughout the body.

    This massage technique is usually performed by trained and certified practitioners who have a deep understanding of facial anatomy and energy pathways. Many people find Kobido to be a relaxing and rejuvenating experience, and it is often sought after for its potential anti-aging benefits. However, like any massage or skincare treatment, individual results may vary, and it's essential to consult a qualified practitioner and discuss your specific goals and concerns before receiving Kobido massage.
