Tsuboki Japanese Face Massage (FAC1a)
This 1-day Japanese Face Massage Course is one of our 'Guest' Courses, written and presented by Anne Parry.
Would you like to be able to offer your clients a relaxing holistic face massage in addition to, or as an alternative to a body massage? This beautiful face massage includes working with tsubo points and meridians therefore enabling the Therapist to treat the whole person through the face.
When Anne began working in Complementary Medicine, she found it hard to find a facial massage course that would give her what she wanted, so she went to a beauty school to learn how to give a "Continental Facial" and followed this up with her own research to be able to present this course to you. The result is a fascinating course.
This course is for Massage Therapists, Aromatherapists or Beauty Therapists but Anne will consider other applicants on a case by case basis.

The Japanese believe that beauty is more than skin deep and that, in order to be beautiful, one must also be healthy.
This face-massage works on both aspects simultaneously:
- Working superficially, we can improve skin-tone and lymph-flow.
- Working at the deeper muscular level, we can affect muscle-tone and general appearance
- Working with the facial meridians, we can affect the balance of health in the whole body - as well as the specific flow of Ki in the face.
Many of the techniques can help to prevent lines, wrinkles and puffiness - a natural facelift!
This fascinating 1-day course is mainly practical, but will also address basic theories, e.g.:
- What is a meridian?
- What is a tsubo?
- Theory of Japanese face-massage
- Three stages: Anma, Acupressure, Lymphatic Drainage
- Meridians running through the face - direction of flow and point location
Please note: This course is a Post-graduate qualification course, during which the student is assessed for competence.
There are short written and practical assessments on the day. Students must then complete 4 practice sessions within 6 weeks before being issued with a certificate of competence.
