Marma Point Massage

A great way to finish an Ayurvedic Facial Massage is by massaging each of your facial marma points. Marma points are sites where flesh, veins, arteries, tendons, bones and joints meet up. Massaging these energy pathways also helps to tone your facial muscles and helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines. It is incredibly calming and relaxing.

Using either your index or your middle finger, first massage each point in an anti-clockwise direction to unblock energy and release toxins. Then massage each point in a clockwise direction to nourish and energise the marma points:

  1. Centre of the chin
  2. Corners of the mouth
  3. Between the nose and upper lip
  4. Outer corners of the nose
  5. Centre of cheekbones
  6. Lower lids, just above the cheekbones – press gently rather than massage
  7. Junction between eyebrows and nose, on the lower part of the eyebrow ridge
  8. Temples
  9. Third eye (6th chakra)
  10. Crown of the head: place hands on crown of head and move back and forth rapidly
