Oriental “Tsubo” total facial care 75 mins

June 19th, 2016

According to TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine), there are a number of acupressure points in the face. These points correspond to each organ and its functions, so the face becomes a mirror to our inner health.

Disharmony in the organs or hormonal system is reflected in the face, resulting in changes in complexion, lack of moisture, acne, rashes etc in the corresponding facial area.

To give you some examples, the condition of the cheeks represents the lungs and their functions, the area between the eyebrows shows the condition of the liver, and the temples on both sides show the condition of the spleen.

By examining the skin condition and any changes thereof, you can indicate which part of the body is imbalanced or stressed.

So the main purpose of our Oriental “Tsubo” total facial care is to harmonise both the physical and mental conditions, by applying gentle yet powerful pressure onto “tsubo” – acupressure points of the face.

We include both lymph drainage and the traditional European facial massage techniques in this treatment. The benefits? It will improve skin tone, relax the facial muscles, soften facial expressions and refresh the complexion!
