The human face is beautiful and complex. It’s arguably one of the most important parts of the human body as it distinguishes our individuality. It’s also a key part in our ability to convey a range of messages and emotions with expressions. It’s how we communicate and what we put forward in the world.
Right now, it seems that there are a million beauty products on the market promising to deliver your face with that much coveted, healthy glow. Here, at Elements Massage Paradise Valley, we are going to let you in on a little secret: massage can help you put your best face forward.
As one of the most exposed portions of your body, your face is constantly up against the elements. Whether harsh sun rays, cold winter air, an arsenal of skin care products, free radicals, you name it, the list goes on and on. Here’s how massage can help you attain that healthy, inner glow through massage:
- Better Blood Flow
Massage improves and increases circulation and this is true for the face as well. Consider for a moment all of the blood vessels coursing through your face. Regular massage can boost your circulatory function, bringing more oxygen and nutrients to your body and this includes your face.
- More Collagen
By improving the flow of nutrients throughout your body, you can also boost your body’s production of collagen, a protein found in skin that gives your skin its strength and elasticity. Increasing collagen is known to prevent wrinkles and the sagging appearance that can leave you looking tired.
- Full Body Wellness
In any type of massage, there’s a system of pressure points that correlate directly to different organs inside your body. When activated through pressure and touch, your body’s nervous system can stimulate the production of feel-good hormones like dopamine and serotonin. If you feel good, chances are you project that vibe through your face.
A professional massage therapist, like the ones we have on our Elements Massage team, can help you discover what type of massage works best for you. The next time you visit our studio, talk to our team about how we can help you put your best face forward.
