Buccal Massage -Celebrity Loved

Meghan Markle, Keira Knightley and Kate Moss; What do they all have in common? Well, aside from being ridiculously famous and amazingly beautiful of course.

The answer? Buccal massage. 

You may have heard of Thai massages, aromatherapy, and more but what exactly is this strange sounding form of massage that more likely than not, you have never heard off? It’s actually a cheek massage. Yeap, you heard that right. 

Derived from the Latin word for cheek, “Bucca”, as its name suggests, Buccal massage focuses entirely on your cheek muscles. Touted as an alternative to Facelift, it’s definitely comforting to know there’s something out there to help us achieve tighter skin without having to go under the knife.

Much like rolfing, it is also a deep tissue massage. During Buccal, the masseur will work on your tissues from both inside and outside your mouth. Sounds a bit weird but, trust me, its results are very worth it. It essentially helps you to relax your muscles, causing them to rest higher up on your face hence, the facelift effect. 

It is also said that your skin will have a radiant, glowing effect after the treatment. This is due to the massage boosting your circulation. The hard thing about Buccal massage is finding a professional who knows how to do it properly. As with any massage, the right amount of pressure and strokes applied is crucial here. There aren’t many professionals who are licensed at it right now but, seeing as how Meghan Markle has gotten its name out, perhaps we will see an influx of Buccal masseuses soon.

While we might not have Buccal Massage on our platform yet, we highly suggest checking out MASEGO The Safari Spa! With an environment just as interesting as Buccal Massage that is inspired by resort-like safari living, MASEGO The Safari Spa allows you to experience a desert sage scrub, a deep tissue massage within a lush and green environment. What better way to give your body the pampering it needs then under a canopied tent in a nature-inspired environment?
