Hi everyone. This is Yasuko and it’s time for Massage Monday. As I’m getting older I have been bombarded with signs of age starting with gray hair, fine lines, things are sagging and drooping, getting loose and lumpy. It’s very sad. I have been researching antiaging facelift massage. This week I’m going to introduce you to Yukuko Tanaka who was charismatic very famous Japanese beautician. Unfortunately she passed away last year but there’s a lot of DVDs and books and tutorials so the rest of us can still benefit from her method. She was famous for Zougan Massage which helped.
To lift up the face and make your face smaller. You look 10 years younger and you only need few minutes a day. In her method she incorporates lymphatic drainage massage. As you can see there’s a lymph node in front of the ear. The idea is to loosen up the facial muscles. Push all the impurities, toxins and fat to the lymph node in front of the ear and drain it through the neck towards the lymph node by the clavicle. I’m going to bare all my imperfections and work on myself.
Let’s get started. First you need a creme or lotion to massage with. I’m going to use my favorite moisturizer by Eminence Organics. Apply all over your face. Let’s get the lymphatic system going by slowly stroking from the ear down to the clavicle three times. Use the index, middle and ring fingers. You are touching the side of the neck, not the front of the neck. If you have long fingernails you can stroke the other side of the neck. Right side with your left hand and left side with your right hand.

On the forehead. Slide your three fingers from the center to the sides. Drain by sliding your finger by the ear to the clavicle. Do this three times. Around the eyes. Gently slide right under the eye from the outer corner to the inner corner. Put a little pressure as you slide your finger under the eyebrow. Then slide your fingers under the eye socket with little pressure from the inner corner to the outer corner and to the temple. Drain by the ear to the clavicle. Right under the eye inside.
The eye socket is very delicate so do it very gently. Do not touch the eye balls. From the center of the chin, press and slide your fingers around the mouth to the philtrum between the nose and the upper lip. Firmly press against the gum as you do this. Repeat three times. Massage around the soft part of your nose five times. This helps to cleanse the pores. Then massage the hard part of your nose. Slide your fingers to the sides and drain by the ears to the clavicle.
From the center of the chin, slide your fingers to the corners of your mouth, pass the edges of your nose, and go all the way to the inner corners of your eyes. Slide to the sides and drain by the ears to the clavicle. Use the entire palm, not just fingertips, to push all the meat and fat. Repeat three times. Hold one cheek with one hand. Slide the palm from the bottom of the cheek diagonally under the cheek bone to the inner corner of the eye. Slide to the side and drain. Repeat three.
Times. Again push all the fat from the cheek to the eye and to the side and drain. Repeat on the other side. Put three fingers by the soft part of your nose and press with good pressure. Slide to the ears and drain to the clavicle. Repeat three times. Next put the base of your thumb between the nose and the cheek bone. Slide along the cheek bone to the front of the ears and drain. Repeat three times. Put the base of your thumb on the corners of your mouth. Press against the gum. Slide.
As you push the cheek meat to the front of the ears and drain. Repeat three times. Press the heel of your hand on the center of the chin. Pull up the chin towards the front of the ear until the thumb goes behind the ear. And drain down to the clavicle. Repeat three times. This helps to get rid of the double chin. Repeat on the other side. Put your thumbs on the chin and firmly press the sides of your index fingers by the nose. Push all the impurities to the sides outside of your faceline and drain. Make sure there.
Is no space between the index fingers and the face. Repeat three times. With one hand go zigzag on the forehead as you move from one side to the other. This helps to eliminate the lines. Finish up with the forehead strokes from the center to the temples and drain by the front of the ear to the clavicle. Repeat three times. For some reason the tutorial wasn’t very clear but I hope you got the idea. I may have to reshoot the tutorial so it’s clearer. You can easily try this at home as you put on a sunscreen.
