Acupressure Face lift Technique
There are many acupressure points on the face. For the purpose of doing the acupressure face lift technique, you need to concern yourself only with the ones indicated in the illustration below.
When to Practice the Technique:
Practice the acupressure face lift technique once a day. Anytime of the day is fine, but do avoid practicing when you are exhausted or after a heavy meal.
How to Do the Acupressure Technique:
Pressure the point with your fingertip in a small, circular clockwise movement for 30 seconds. You may simultaneously press points that are located symmetrically opposite from each other.
For example, press the point at the outer corner of your right eye with your right forefinger at the same time that you are pressing the point at the outer corner of your left eye with your left forefinger, for 30 seconds. This also reduces the amount of time it takes to do the whole routine.
After doing the acupressure technique, slap your face lightly several times. This will stimulate and tighten the muscles of your face. Then, rub your hands together vigorously for 20 to 30 seconds until you feel the warm energy in your palms. Then, lay your hands on your face for a few seconds and feel the energy being absorbed by your face.
Next, move your hands in a circular upward and outward, light rubbing motion (starting from the chin, going up to the nose, to the forehead, and then out to the temples, the cheeks and the lower jaw for one cycle). Do this rapidly for a total of 30 cycles. This will give your face an additional boost of rejuvenating energy.
Lastly, do the same to the neck area. Slap your neck area lightly several times. Then, rub your hands together vigorously for 20 to 30 seconds until you feel the warm energy in your palms. Then, lay your hands on your neck for a few seconds and feel the energy being absorbed by your neck for a few seconds and feel the energy being absorbed by your neck.
Next, move your hands in an upward, light rubbing motion (starting from the base of the neck, going up to the underside of the chin and jawline for one cycle). Do this rapidly for a total of 30 cycles. This will give your neck an additional boost of rejuvenating energy.
“Crows-feet" and wrinkles around the eyes can be diminished or even eliminated by applying acupressure particularly on the points located on the outer corners of the eyes and directly beneath the eyes.
This can be done as often as convenient, and the acupressure can be sustained for 1-2 minutes for maximum results.
Massaging around the eyes in the direction indicated in the diagram below will firm and tone the entire area around the eyes. This is completely opposite to the eye rubbing motion that people habitually use upon awakening, which causes the muscles to droop.
