Foam Roller Massage For The Face Myofasccial Fascia Release

Hi i everyone! Today I'm going to talk about how to do foam roller massage for the face. Have you done or same people do some massage thing with this kind of a bulky stuff foam roller and I love this exercise for the body and why not for the face because face also developed muscle nodes and for circulation and the stiff fascia to be released so this is very very important for the face as well but we’ll not going to use this bulky stuff on the face because it’s too bulky and it’s too big and too much so instead of this foam roller we're gonna use our joint aka fascia release or a myo fascial massage.

First use you finger and relax your neck and shoulder so from like here one two three four five six seven eight nine ten and move up a little bit one two three four five six seven eight nine ten and then up one two three four five six seven eight nine ten and if you have time you can move on to scalp massage but this my hair I don’t want to mess up and also I want to focus on face massage for this video so let's move on.

First just like this you could do like this oh but I like to doing this because in general because of corona viruse, people so obsessed about cleanliness including me and then you don't wanna I like doing some exercises when I'm outside or something and I'm cannot always wash my hands so that's why I like using this joint instead of this finger area but anyway I so use a finger like this on the forehead forehead area then one two three four five six seven eight nine ten it's like down down down down because muscle is always up up up motion to create the wrinkle up this one right so you want to bring it down down… and then so one two three so let's take on the 1 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 down 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 don't make wrinkle like this no like a little bit yeah a little bit out a little bit out so that it doesn't cause wrinkle in here and then move to that so 1 2 3 temple 1 2 3 so the second one is here, 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10… and then temple, 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 you could do if you like you could do like this massage circular motion 1 2 3, this feels so good, 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10…

Then let's move on to cheekbone area so use your finger this joint area and a hook like hook to the hooks to the to lift up the cheekbone because if we want to lift up the cheekbone and then hook it like hooker next to the nose and then we're gonna do this motion and this motion, so let’s do this one first… I’m counting 10 times, so 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10…

With age we get the facial osteoporosis and the gravity so many thing, bad posture, many things and everything starts sagging so it's important to lift up the face lift up the cheek so I like having higher full of cheekbones all time so let's do maybe two more times or like this length one 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10…

Next one is eye brow area because we get lots of attention and show emotion on this area that what we get is levels a big bomb around here, not good so we need to break down the muscle knot and also release fascia from the muscle all right? so let's do it! You you do like like this you're doing that like this motion but see this causing wrinkle right? now we use finger to support then one two three four five six seven eight nine ten, then it’s above the eyebrow, not the eyebrow, above the eyebrow, so 1 2 3, ten seconds, 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10… then the other side 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10… you could do both at the same time but you it's easy to cause wrinkle like this so really be careful not to do that really try to from inside out inside out always.

And let's move on to accupoint here, if you're concerned about asymmetrical eyes or asymmetrical eyebrows or smaller eyes of so many things this around eye is a very very important and the most important accupoint is here so who quit to the socket but did not cause a wrinkle like this careful and then imagine that it's like here so you're sticking out to here but it's cause wrinkles I'm gonna use this and one two three four five six eight nine ten… lift up one two three four five six seven eight nine ten… whoo!

Next we move to this one this is like real tight and I advise if I do like this before so when you open your mouth or ii… want you to feel the movement this one here here in the hooker then not this one but hooker here that one two three four five six seven eight nine ten two three four five six seven eight nine ten one two three four five six seven eight nine ten.

Last one, let's work on jawline so use this game join and then from the chin, this one if you're worried of if they're concerned about the chin tension like me this is very important because it's important reduce chin tension so get like this circular motion one ten times and then this marionette line cuz we don't wanna have jaw or marionette line so reduce the tension to pull down so… and then move a little bit one two three four five six seven eight nine ten oh my gosh! I feel that trrrr… motion like a so many muscle rocks 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10… a little bit up.. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10… so 1 2 3 4 5 and then this time behind behind this chin this one, it’s hard to do circular so 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10…oh my gosh I feel the rock and then… 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10… and that’s it!

This way you don't have to use this foam roller or anything hard just use it use your joint and I I like using instead of this area if using here because of corona virus thing, it's safer but of course please wash your hands first before you do it honestly I'm becoming more concerned about my bumpy face it's like more bumpy like Mountain Valley Mountain Valley Mountain Valley is more more prominent I think with age because I'm 41 years old and more the more smoother your face the more younger looking so it's important for me really important to break down muscle knots and the fascia release so I am going to try this massage I mean I've been doing since I learned this technique in Japan I mean not in Japan but the Japanese instructor on zoom because of quarantine I keep doing lots of learning so much interesting stuff online and likely as a side effect of this self-isolation of corona virus thing, Japanese instructor that they studies lots of things on study teaching online so I can take some Japanese class even without going to Japan online! so that's really cool I'm excited to take a voice training lesson tonight and but this one I learned this last week so I want to show you guys.
