The Kobido, together with the petrissage, is a massage technique originating from the Rising Sun.
Known as the "Massage of Eternal Youth", it was created in 1472 for the Empress desiring a treatment capable of enhance its beauty and keep it intact over time.
Today, Kobido is also spreading in the West as it represents a combination of energetic and delicate massage capable of improving aesthetics and rebalancing vital energy.
WHAT IS KOBIDO
It is a set of maneuvers which, combined together, give rise to a manual treatment of the neck, face and head in a mix of pressures, vibrations and touches now delicate, now more decisive.
It comes from a branch of Anma (“an”: pressure “ma”: friction) l 'ancient massage practiced by the Samurai to restore the free movement of one's body, through manipulative and energetic techniques capable of restoring the physical-mental balance before and after the fight.
According to Japanese philosophy, beauty is the reflection of a harmony between body and mind.
This treatment therefore allows not only to have a beautiful, well-groomed face, but to feel fit, calm and extremely relaxed.
The effects are immediate: an all-encompassing feeling of well-being as well as a relaxed and luminous face. Its benefits are many:
- Regenerate the fabrics
- Reduces wrinkles
- Improves the circulation of the blood
- Eliminate toxins
- Stimulates the production of collagen and elastin
- Free from tension muscular
HOW IT WORKS
Kobido works on:
- LYMPHATIC SYSTEM
- FACIAL MUSCLES
It is performed from the neck towards the forehead with a rapid sequence of movements, percussions, light touches and rhythmic touches. This stimulates the nervous system, strengthens the muscles, and improves blood and lymphatic circulation.
The movements require a certain skill and dexterity but over time each gesture will improve thanks to practice.
