Course summary

The Japanese have for centuries held the concept that health defined beauty and that the face is an indicator of inner health, when an individual is truly balanced and healthy, they radiate beauty through their face.

Would you like to be able to offer a relaxing holistic face massage?

This beautiful face massage includes working with tsubo points and meridians, therefore, enabling the therapist to treat the whole person through the face.

What’s included

Your tutor will demonstrate:

  • 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 energy in the face
  • Many of the techniques can help to prevent lines, wrinkles and puffiness, a natural facelift


This fascinating one day course is mainly practical, but will also address basic theories:

  • 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

Refreshments are provided, including a light 'healthy’ lunch.
