The following video demonstrates a very special method that Alexandra Sovena applies in her self-facial massage which she learnt from her mom’s daily massage routine at an early stage in her life.
Alexandra starts by using the minimum amount of oil which she spreads over her face while massaging smoothly in deep circles upward and outward all over the face focusing on tissues and muscles. Next, she moves to the step of detoxifying the glands where she stresses on the importance of massaging slowly and carefully adding some more oil if necessary so as to detoxify all the toxins of the face by draining down towards the ears and then to the neck’s area; a specific spot where she precisely warms up with the same upward and outward massaging movements till the heat is felt coming out from that area. Then, she moves to draining from the chin underneath following the chin bone all the way to the back of ear taking away all the toxins. After, she starts focusing on all the muscles of the face starting from the chin, mouth, checks, eyes and then squeezing the forehead area with her fingers.
Finally she moves back to the eye area and keeps draining with lots of little deep circles using her ring fingers placing the thumbs behind the ear loops.
