A unique experience of relaxation and rejuvenation through the ancient Japanese art of Kobido facial massage


Japanese Kobido Facial Massage


The Art of Facial Beauty  skin care and personal well-being have been fundamental elements in many cultures throughout history. One of the most prominent practices is Japanese Kobido massage. 


What is Japanese Kobido Massage?

Kobido massage is an ancient Japanese facial massage technique that has been practiced for centuries in Japan. «Kobido» 古美道 translates literally to «ancient path of beauty.» This massage focuses on stimulating specific pressure points on the face, neck, and scalp to promote blood circulation, relax facial muscles, and rejuvenate the skin.


Origin of Kobido

The origin of Kobido massage dates back to the Edo period in Japan, where it was practiced by geishas to maintain their beauty and youth. Over time, this technique has been passed down from generation to generation, perfected, and adapted to contemporary knowledge of facial anatomy and physiology.


Why is Japanese Kobido Massage so Popular?

Kobido massage has gained popularity worldwide due to its effectiveness in improving the appearance and health of facial skin without invasive interventions. It is a natural and relaxing alternative for those seeking facial rejuvenation without resorting to surgical procedures or aggressive treatments.


Who Can Receive a Kobido Massage?

Kobido massage is suitable for almost everyone, regardless of age or skin type. However, there are some contraindications to consider.

Contraindications of Kobido Massage

People who have recently received botox treatments or undergone recent facial surgeries should consult their doctor before receiving a Kobido or any facial massage. Manipulating the skin and facial muscles may interfere with the results of these treatments.


Benefits of Kobido Massage

  • Natural Face Lift: Kobido massage tones facial muscles and improves skin elasticity, resulting in a natural lifting effect.

  • Relaxes Muscles and Helps Facial Symmetry: By releasing muscle tension in the face and neck, Kobido massage can improve facial symmetry and reduce wrinkles caused by muscle tension.
  • Relieves Headaches and Neck Pain: Many people experience relief from headaches and neck tension after receiving a Kobido massage.
  • Relieves Bruxism: Kobido massage can help reduce bruxism, a condition characterized by teeth grinding during sleep.
