The top benefits of a facial massage

facial massage

Massages are relaxing in any form but facial massages are particularly good for relaxing you, especially if you’ve had a stressful day… or run of days.

According to, the face is full of nerves and pleasure points, which is why we feel so pampered when someone gives us a massage. Professionals are of course one of the best way to make sure that you’re well looked after and there are lots of spa treatments in Shoreditch.


In particular, M Spa at M by Montcalm Shoreditch London Tech City Hotel is an excellent way to chill out, whether you’re in town for business and need a stress reliever or if you’re trying to get the most out of relaxing when you’re on holiday.

We offer three types of Swedish massage, which is perfect for relaxing and rejuvenating your entire body and three types of deep tissue massage that focuses on reaching the deeper layers of muscles and tissue, especially for tense areas.

At the spa, another form of massage we are proud to offer is hot stones heaven, which is designed to relax your body and your mind. A combination of rhythmic massage and the power of warm volcanic stones work into the energy points in your body, leaving you feeling nothing but blissful happiness.

But, coming back to facial massages, there are several reasons why they are the best choice for you…

It will improve your mood

Having your facial muscles massaged helps decrease anxiety and can actually turn around a bad mood, according to a study by User Science Institute.

If you’re feeling stressed the best thing for you might be to either go for a run or enjoy a facial massage, but the latter might be much nicer.

Preventing wrinkles

Going back to stress, daily episodes of this – which happens to us all now and again – can result in tension buildup in your muscles.

This is largely due to the fact that people have a tendency to frown when they’re concentrating, angry or disappointed. You’ll also find these along your lip lines, but with a routine facial massage you can notice a real difference when your muscles aren’t tight and drawn.

Depending on where you go, the person working on you is also likely to offer you a hydrating moisturiser that will help to further minimise lines.


Not only can regular massages help reduce lines and wrinkles on your face, therapeutic massage can also help to clear up sinus congestion – particularly helpful when you have a nasty cold.

This can help prevent puffiness in your cheeks and even completely relieve headaches, should you have one.


By having a face massage, the movement stimulates the lymphatic vessels in your skin, which helps to rid your body of toxins. Interestingly, this is true for every area around the body, so a full-body massage can do wonders if you’re on a health kick.

The reason why it’s particularly good to have a facial massage, however, is because many lymph nodes are scattered through the facial area, mostly along the edge of your chin and jawline.

Don’t forget though, that if you are having a detoxifying massage you need to make sure that you drink a lot of water and avoid alcohol for the rest of the day. Not only will you feel healthier, your skin will be absolutely glowing.
