What Are Face Acupressure Points?

Face acupressure points

Face acupressure points are biologically active points located on the face. The human face consists of 8 meridians (internal energy channels) woven into a dense energy network. Facial acupressure points are located in small pits in the bones and joints, among the tendons and muscle fibers - where you can feel your pulse. Simulating these places can occasionally cause a painful reaction. However, it is worth it to preserve beauty, relieve tension, and improve many bodily processes!

How Does Acupressure Work?

Stimulating acupressure points for face rejuvenation is a process that derives from ancient Chinese medicine. Using this method, vital points on the face are activated, and internal processes are launched that improve the appearance of the skin:
  • Improves blood flow to skin cells;
  • Increases the supply of oxygen and nutrients to the tissue;
  • Restores a healthy complexion;
  • Evens out the skin;
  • Normalizes the work of the organs and systems of vital activity;
  • Reduced manifestations and provides relief for symptoms of various diseases;
  • Improves overall well-being and mood;
  • Helps to combat stress and relieves insomnia.
