Shiatsu facial?

I'm not sure if this should be in the Shiatsu section or one of the other sections, but I'm sure it'll be moved if it's in the wrong place!

I have been given a gift voucher for my local beauty salon for a "Shaitsu facial" - apparently all the therapist underwent training in January for this facial using REN products. Now I've had facials in my time, and I have had a shiatsu massage many moons ago, and to me they don't seem to go together! So, my question is - is this "shiatsu facial" worth having or is it a gimmick, if it's the latter thenmight I be better off swapping it for something else?
I welcome your thoughts!
With love,

Like you AL, I've heard of Shiatsu, and I've heard of facials, but I've never heard of the two together. Would be interesting to hear from a Shiatsu expert. 😮

I am no expert but we are taught many points on the face and I know Ohashi has a video on this, its something I've been looking into. It would be good to hear from senior shiatsu persons on this.

The Shiatsu facial that you asked about may be similar to one taught by the European Shiatsu School, where is is trained as a Face-lift Body work Diploma Course.

It is based on a number of bodywork and beauty techniques and uses acupressure, Philippine vibrational massage, Chinese massage, and micro-mucle energy technique.

I hope this is helpful.

I recently started doing shiatsu facial and after 3 months of practice ,i have started receiving compliments for the first time in my life. So,yes - it is effective if done correctly.You need to know all the pressure points like ST and BL. I started it by reading this post
