Kobido massage is one of the most complex facial massage techniques in the world. It originated in Japan in the 15th century and its name in Japanese means "ancient path to beauty." The tradition of Kobido massage is continued and is gaining popularity all over the world. Kobido massage is a non-invasive, manual method that improves the oval of the face, firms the skin and smoothes wrinkles without the need for surgical lifting, lifting threads, or other cosmetic procedures. Thanks to the combination of slow, relaxing movements with advanced techniques involving quick and intense movements that affect the deep structures of the skin and facial muscles, this massage not only relaxes but also stimulates tissues and reduces tension, giving a lifting effect.How is Kobido massage performed? Kobido massage consists of several stages that take place in a specific order, and the treatment usually lasts up to 90 minutes. The massage begins with a thorough cleansing of the skin. Then,

on the cleansed skin, without the use of any preparations, a deep tissue massage is performed. Its purpose is to eliminate larger muscle tensions, which makes it easier to smooth out fine mimic wrinkles. The next stage of the massage is gentler. It relaxes, removes muscle tension caused by emotions, and stimulates circulation, allowing the skin to regain a healthy color.

Then, by means of faster hand movements, blood and lymph flow are improved, which has a positive effect on the nourishment of the skin and the reduction of dark circles and bags under the eyes. This stage of Kobido massage is called lymphatic drainage. In the most intensive part of Kobido massage, namely the lifting phase, movements are strong and fast, and the skin is pinched, lifted, and kneaded. During this time, the skin may also feel a slight discomfort and warmth. The last stage, namely acupressure, involves pressing individual muscle points, called energy points.

Effects after the massage: The benefits of Kobido massage can be seen after the first treatment. However, maintaining and improving them usually requires at least one session per week for a certain period of time. The most satisfying effect of Kobido massage is the visible improvement in skin elasticity and facial muscle relaxation. In addition to improving appearance, Kobido massage also helps to relax and relieve stress-related effects such as fatigue, headaches, or insomnia.
