Face Shiatsu

Have you ever wondered why most Asians have beautiful skin and look many years younger than their biological age? The answer is not merely genetics. It is diet and life-style. The average Asian consumes many more vegetables and grains (moistening) and much less animal foods (drying). Add this up along with avoiding direct sunlight exposure and the natural skin texture and softness, traits found in children and associated with youthfulness, remains well into old age.
Following a whole-grain centered diet (macrobiotics) will bring the same results to all. Remedial steps can be taken to make up for any faulty eating choices (past consumption of beef, pork, chicken, eggs, cheese, refined sugar, and flour products). Smoking is also linked to damaging the skin as it dries the moisture holding tissues leaving wrinkles. In addition to dietary therapy, shiatsu can be added to help the body rid itself of past toxins and increase blood circulation directly to the face and other parts of the body.

One of the benefits of Face Shiatsu is that it feels so good. It is amazing how having the head touched can relax the body and mind so quickly. If you are stressed or overwhelmed, do yourself a favor and receive Face Shiatsu. It will refresh not only your body but also your mind.
