Plastic massage is performed by alternating the pressing, vibration and locking movements, which are produced by the so-called massage lines. This is a very important point that should definitely be taken into account so as not to stretch the skin. In general, the same movement as with other types of massage, a fundamental difference lies in the kneading technique that executes reciprocating motion in a circle.

  • Starts with plastic massage strokes - go on the massage lines from the top, completing fixation on each line.
  • Surface faces kneading is performed:
  1. from the middle of the chin to the earlobe
  2. from the corner of the mouth to the tragus
  3. from the nose to the temple
  4. from the outer edge of the circular muscle of the eye through the nose and brow arch to the temple
  5. from the middle of the forehead to the temple
  6. cheeks from the temples to the mandible
  • Surface kneading neck muscles:
  1. from the submandibular region to the ear lobe
  2. from the lower jaw to the clavicle (on the side of the neck), the subclavian region, sternum
  3. from the sternum of the anterior side of the neck up (the lower jaw)
  • Deep kneading (performed in the same way as the surface).
  • Effleurage (staccato) - the massage lines from the bottom up.
  • Vibration - from the bottom up.
  • Stroking - the final stage of plastic massage.

After completing the massage the skin should be wiped with lotion or decoction of herbs (if indicated) and impose appropriate mask (depending on skin type and current problems). Very good mask with a lifting effect, which shows nearly all patients in need of plastic massage. They fix the result obtained from massage.

Currently, many salons offer advanced the so-called chiroplastic massage, which is based on the principles of plastic massage, but the technique has some of the differences. This procedure was developed by the Spanish professor of the Institute of Manual Therapy (Barcelona) Enrique Garcia Castells. According to the specialists of aesthetic cosmetology, today it is the most effective massage with a strong lifting effect.

The highlight is, firstly, very energetic, even abrupt, movements, due to which it is possible to achieve increased blood flow to the tissues. And secondly, this massage is not just a person - obligatory work on the back and side of the neck area, neck area, the trapezius muscle and hands (from the shoulder to the elbow). The results are impressive.

Already in the title of this massage it laid deeper meaning - analogy with plastic surgery. And I must say, rightly so. Masseur thanks to a special technique in a sense, the person models, improving its contours. But age-related changes just require just such intervention, in which is possible to restore the shape of the face.

How can achieve this effect without drastic intervention, but only by a massage? Deep study of stimulating muscular frame, an impact not only on the facial muscles, which are already by their nature are in good shape, but also on the static muscles, gives a stunning result. No scalpel, no anesthesia, no recovery period (as it is needed during surgery) it is possible to achieve stable rejuvenating effect.

Thus, plastic massage leads to the following results:

  • wrinkles
  • improves blood circulation and lymphatic drainage
  • swelling go
  • increases tissue oxygenation
  • They disappear or become inconspicuous dark spots
  • narrow pores
  • rashes disappear
  • the skin becomes more supple and elastic
  • restored oval face

From a certain age plastic massage is sure to include a program of care for face and neck, of course, if there are no contraindications for massage as such. The only thing I would like to note - this massage requires professional knowledge, in particular on the anatomy of the face and neck. However, any massage should only be performed by professionally trained persons.
