A 45-minute facial massage reduced anxiety and alleviated negative mood in healthy adult women, according to recent research.
The study, “The facial massage reduced anxiety and negative mood status, and increased sympathetic nervous activity,” involved 32 healthy Japanese women, ranging in age from 20 to 40.
In 2008 MASSAGE Magazine reported that facelift massage has anti-aging benefits.
A full research report on this study will be posted to www.massagemag.com in conjunction with the print edition of MASSAGE Magazine’s April issue.
