Have you ever heard of buccal massage? The term (derived from the latin word bucca, for cheek) is as equally exotic as the technique, which involves massaging muscles deep inside the cheek and jaw area to release tension, improve circulation, and, of course, promote youthful looking skin.
Regarded as a facelift alternative without going under the knife, buccal massage is currently practiced by only a handful of facialists in New Zealand, founder of Ayurvanna Kym has been performing these facials for many years.
"I felt that facialists were missing the mark with buccal massage, so I wanted to create my own holistic intuitive version that used much deeper pressure point and lymphatic-based massage movements,"
The result? An even more relaxed face that rests in a more lifted position (hence, the face-lift effect), which can last up to three days, and even longer, if you practice facial massage at home daily with a face oil for five to six minutes.
I always begin with Ayurvanna Evrything oil with a few drops of the Ayurvanna Prickly pear beauty oil, the most expensive beauty oil in the world, used by Marilyn Monroe herself, with amazing skincare properties, then I begin this beautiful massage.
I swept the oil from the center of the face and outwards in small circular motions, and then along the contours of their face, including the cheekbones and jawline. This is easily the most divine part of the facial, I also use a jade massage roller to release toxins under the skin, and from there the massage turns Buccal.
I then turned to the jaw muscles and release giving the client a feel of weightlessness around the head and stress-free feeling.
After the facial your skin will feel absolutely divine with a dewy glow to it, the cheeks and face will become more contoured.
