What is ancient Chinese Medicine?

Credit: https://www.thebrostclinic.com/acupuncture/

Traditional Chinese Medicine is based on an ancient philosophy that describes the universe, and the body, in terms of two opposing forces: yin and yang. When these forces are in balance, the body is healthy. Energy, called “qi” (pronounced “chee”) flows along specific pathways, called meridians, throughout the body. This constant flow of energy keeps the yin and yang forces balanced.

Acupuncture improves the body’s functions and promotes the natural self-healing process by stimulating specific anatomic sites–commonly referred to as acupuncture points, or acupoints. The most common method used to stimulate acupoints is the insertion of fine, sterile needles into the skin. Pressure, heat, or electrical stimulation may further enhance the effects. Other acupoint stimulation techniques include: manual massage, moxibustion or heat therapy, cupping, and the application of topical herbal medicines and liniments.

What is Full Spectrum Light Therapy?

Full Spectrum Light therapy, which is FDA approved effects tissue at a cellular level using low-level LED light to penetrate the skin’s surface and into the underlying tissues, stimulating the body’s natural cellular functions. This application of specific non-ionizing wavelengths of light lead to non-invasive, drug-free medical and wellness benefits.

The patented technology is able to work deep into the body to provide relief from many of today’s bodily concerns. Combined with the knowledge of their medical expertise, they offer a safe, but completely effective solution that has the potential to homogenize your body, mind and soul into a re-membered wellness and functionality.

Facial Acupuncture

Facial acupuncture treatment uses super-fine needles to target underlying health issues that may be contributing to a deficient facial appearance. Furthermore, the needles are placed into problem areas on the face and neck, such as wrinkles or acne scarring, to promote nutrient-rich blood flow, stimulate muscle activity and toning, and encourage collagen growth, which all contribute to a more youthful and healthy-looking appearance.

Facial Massage / Full Spectrum Light Therapy in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii

The oldest known Facial massage in human history dates back to the third century B.C. where it was written about in an ancient Chinese medical text. Scientists have discovered many subsequent ancient medical records in archeological digs conducted in Greece, Persia, Japan and India. All these early-day writings have one thing in common; their Facial massages were described in vivid details but always as part and parcel of total body massage therapies in which specific pressure points on areas of the face and neck were depressed sufficiently to loosen obstructions in the flow of the vital energy which is also known as gi. The standalone Facial massage of the recent Western world was popularized in the twentieth century Europe before it was inducted into the North American world of cosmetic and beauty treatments. As a result, Facial massage came to be regarded as the job for estheticians, cosmetologists and makeup artists rather than massage therapists.

In the cosmetic and beauty arena, the Facial massage is administered with the intent to slow down the natural aging process and to attain younger, healthier and more vibrant looking and feeling facial skin. However, Facial massage also has therapeutic benefits as it can relieve and mitigate stress, migraine headaches, premenstrual syndromes (PMS) as well as sinus congestion.

In spite of their growing demand as entire massage sessions of their own, Facial massages are not precluded from total body massage treatments. Needless to say, Facial massage treatments which are performed the entire session are much more comprehensive and include many elements which are not included in Facial massages that are part of full body treatments. In both instances, though, gentle yet stimulating upward strokes are used in circular or semi-circular gliding movements. A typical and basic Facial massage will include the following procedure and usually in that same specific order:

With the client comfortably reclining on his or her back on a treatment table and the professional seated closely to the clientís head, the face is thoroughly cleanses and wiped dry.

A lubricant such as a cream, a lotion or oil is applied to the entire face and neck area. The Facial massage will begin with repetitive rounded movements and will include every part of the face as well as the neck, ears and scalp. Crucial pressure points will also be stimulated in the process.

The face, neck and ears are cleansed of the lubricant used for the massage and a facial moisturizer is applies.

Facial massages may also include the removal of facial hair as well as the removal of blackheads and whiteheads which will necessitate a moist steam treatment. These three elements will be included right after the massage session and before the application of the moisturizer. In addition, the entire process may be culminated with the application of full or partial makeup and sometimes even a hairdo.

The benefits of the Western style Facial massage

  • Improvement of the facial skin and its muscle tone;
  • Relaxation of the facial and eye muscles;
  • Alleviation from tension headaches and general facial pain;
  • Relief from stress and anxiety;
  • The overall release of stress from the body and mind.

Facial massages are part of full body treatments in Eastern therapies where pressure is applied to points on the face which correspond to various internal organs such as the stomach, the liver and the gall bladder.

Benefits of Eastern Facial massages 

  • The stimulation of meridian points on the face;
  • Relief from eyestrain and neck tension;
  • Correction of liver and fall bladder imbalances;
  • Recovery from nervous disorders of the stomach;
  • Release from premenstrual water retention.

Facial massages are most often performed with bare hands that are lightly lubricated by oils or lotions to help them glide more smoothly over delicate facial skin or with thin acupuncture needles. However, there are some mechanical devices that may also be used instead of the hands or in addition to them.

In summary, these are techniques that you can do yourself and/or have one of our mobile massage therapists give you a specialized treatment.  We services the entire gold coast of the Big Island of Hawaii, from South Kona to Hawi, and some outlying areas.

Thank you!
