Importance of Facial Massage
Facial massage is one of the most basic - and overlooked - forms
of direct communication between the therapist and client, often
playing a key role in client retention for a clinic/spa/salon.
In addition to the value of its role in enriching
client satisfaction levels, however, facial massage can also support
the therapist in optimizing the particular goals of a skin care
Varying Characteristics of
Therapists should recognize that the stimulation needs and sensitivity
levels of a client’s skin, in terms of facial massage, can
vary significantly according to skin type.
This is due to the fact that different skin types are characterized
by differing levels of vascular and sebaceous activity.
Different Techniques for
Different Skin Types
Thus, certain facial massage techniques can serve to support the
results desired for a skin care treatment, while others can actually
be contraindicative to the client’s particular skin type
Facial Massage for Different Skin Types educates and demonstrates how the choice of massage movements to be performed during a skin treatment should therefore be dependent on the client’s skin type, as well as his or her mood at the time of treatment.
