Your face and skin are essentially mirrors of everything happening inside your body and mind, so addressing any blockages and working on energy meridians can prove to be fruitful for your complexion: Think glowing, juicy, radiance!
An acupressure facial (otherwise known as an acufacial) fine-tunes your emotional and physical states. Facial acupuncture dates back hundreds of thousands of years to the ancient Chinese royals who used it to preserve youth. Acupressure frees and balances energy or qi, which runs through your body in specific channels called meridians. Like veins bringing blood and nutrients to all the parts of your body, the meridians bring vital energy to your organs, muscles, and other tissues including your skin.
Energy can get stuck or flow too much in certain areas, and as acupuncturists can needle specific points to restore flow and balance in the body, you, too, can do it with your fingers! Tapping some of the same key meridian points brings more energy to your face, which can increase collagen production, improve muscle tone and circulation, and promote overall energy, health,and well-being.
