Kobido Japanese Expert Facial Massages

Kobido “an ancient way of beauty” is appreciated worldwide for its aesthetic benefits, with the overall objective to improve the health of the person. Its beauty and technicality make it an exceptional Japanese art, capable of re-energizing both the body and the mind. In Japan, the concept of beauty cannot be dissociated from that of well-being and good health. Kobido is a precious Japanese facial massage …. It is the most sophisticated facial massage in the world and reputed to be the youthful massage par excellence.  

The elegant gestures of Kobido
"Authentic Kobido gestures are Youth at our fingertips!"
Originating from the Asian culture, Kobido is performed with authentic gestural techniques, based on percussions and vibrations: a real choreography of the hands that we imagine flying gently, like butterfly wings on the face, with eyes closed.

This ancestral face massage has 48 techniques of dedicated gestures. During Kobido, both hands have their separate functions: working both individually and simultaneously. This precise and delicate work is like a musical choreography. The gentle rhythm and regularity of the gestures ensure a feeling of deep relaxation which rejuvenates dull, tired and aging skin whilst also improving comfort and health.

The benefits of Kobido
The health of the skin is closely related to the way we experience situations and emotions. When we radiate from within, when we are happy and accept ourselves as we are, the skin hears it and applies it to itself. It then becomes luminous, radiant, and reflects good health.

Sandrine Takumi Finch, renowned Kobido Master expresses it this way : "The face has to be totally relaxed to accept to relax the features. For example, if we are frowning out of habit or due to too much mental load, then you will need to relax that area before we can lift it, especially through meditative massage."

A Kobido massage acts on all levels of the being and helps to establish a real connection with the body and the world. It allows for an inner journey while offering a pleasant feeling of lightness, both in the body and in the soul. The Japanese face massage is a bubble of oxygen that promotes deep relaxation and clarification of the mind.
