THE POWER OF KINESIO MASSAGE
CREATE YOUR IDEAL SKIN
Kinesio massage was created following the principles of kinesio therapy which is the study of muscular skeletal structures and their relationship to circulation to optimize body functioning.
Skin is exposed to 15.000 micro-contractions throughout the day that accumulate to create fine lines and alter the appearance of smooth skin. Darphin's Kinesio massage complements our powerful botanical formulas to rejuvenate skin
MICROCIRCULATION KINESIO MASSAGE
This massage with a serum activates blood circulation and energizes skin. It also helps decongest fluids, which helps increase oxygenation to help improve penetration of the ingredients into skin.
Using palms, keeping them taught, press cheeks, temples, forehead, cheeks again, and neck.
Using the thumb and forefinger, pinch cheeks, temples, forehead, cheeks again, and neck.
Using fingertips, tap delicately from forehead towards neck.
DETOXIFICATION KINESIO MASSAGE
This massage with an oil helps decongest skin by acting on the lymph circulation, which, unlike the blood system, has no "pump" to activate it. Performing this draining massage will help rid skin of impurities.
Using the inside part of hands, glide towards ears, going down over the neck’s lymph nodes. Then press on collar bone.
Bend the forefinger and smooth the forehead on 3 levels. Then smooth cheeks. Finally, glide down over the neck’s lymph nodes. Then press on collar bone
Use fingertips to drain the contour of the face towards the neck. Then press on collar bone.
MUSCLE RELAXING KINESIO MASSAGE
Every day, our face makes 15,000 micro-contractions. These leave an imprint on skin called expression wrinkles. Our deep massage with a cream helps relax muscles for a smooth, rejuvenated appearance.
Using the thumb and bent index finger, grab and knead the “smile muscles”.
Using fingertips, draw the letter S to relax and de-stress the angry muscles.
Using the heel of the hand, lift the happy muscles towards cheekbones. Then rotate with firm pressure to grab the neck’s muscles and finish along the trapezius.
ANTI-AGING KINESIO MASSAGE
This anti-aging massage with an anti-aging cream works on the lower part of the face to help create a rejuvenated and energetic appearance.
Using bent forefingers and middle fingers, follow the jaw line to lift facial contours.
Using thumbs, “flick” the cheeks with a quick upward motion
Place the arm behind the back of the head, like a professional would do when you receive a facial massage. Grasp the cheek muscles with all fingers, kneading the skin. Repeat on the other side
This massage with an eye cream will rejuvenate the appearance of the eye area and decongest for an overall wide awake eye appearance.
KNEADING OF THE BROW AREA
Using the thumb and forefinger, pinch skin and stretch muscles, including the “angry muscles”.
Place fingers in a V shape and spread them to drain and smooth fluids around the eye area.
Place the arm above the head and use the fingertips facing each other to “iron” crow’s feet. Repeat on other side.
