Facial exercising and facial massage are both vital elements in the overall tone, texture and appearance of the facial skin, and they have rehabilitative properties as well and have been long used to treat conditions such as TMJ and Bell’s palsy For years, specialized physical therapists and physicians have been prescribing facial exercises as part of a rehabilitation regimen for the treatment of conditions such as TMJ disorder and Bell’s palsy. Facial resistance training is now being offered at many rehabilitation facilities to address these conditions and there are studies showing their effectiveness. Facial exercises are very effective in the realignment of the jaw and help to alleviate the pressure and pain associated with TMJ disorder. They tone, strength and tighten the mastication muscles, the neck muscles and the jawline muscles and can relieve the painful symptoms of TMJ. Facial exercises can re-educate the neuromuscular for movements, Balance, Coordination, kinesthetic sense, posture and proprioception. They are often used to retrain paralyses of the face and neck to improve proprioception and coordination. They strengthen, stretch and increase range of motion of the face and neck. Toning the mastication muscles helps alleviate the appearance of facial drooping. Facial exercises alleviate the symptoms of Bell’s palsy by strengthening the affected muscles or group of muscles and learning to relax. They increase eyelid closure and lip closure and decrease synkinesis (abnormal movements patterns). They also increase muscles strengths, symmetry, and balance and help to regain movements Facial exercises also help to improve the overall health and tonality of the face and neck in regards to fitness. Facial exercising is vital element in the overall tone, texture and appearance of the facial skin, toning and tightening the various facial muscles. Facial massage helps improve the overall health and tonality of the face and neck in regards to rehabilitation. Massage has been practiced for centuries and is considered among the oldest forms of healing. When stress occurs, the muscles of the face contract often leading to headaches, jaw pain, and even neck pain. Facial massage increases circulation, relieves pain and relieves the stress, which quite often exasperates the TMJ condition. It increases circulation by maximizing cellular turnover and brings nutrients to skin’s surface to promote healing. Facial massage also increases the skin’s temperature, which causes the skin to release toxins and impurities that cleansers alone cannot reach. Facial massage helps improve the overall health and tonality of the face and neck in regards to fitness. It is a vital element in the overall tone, texture and appearance of the facial skin. Beneath the skin’s surface, massage enhances the action of the lymphatic system by moving bacteria and waste away from the skin cells so these toxins can be eliminated. Facial massage strengthens and tones the facial muscles, to prevent wrinkling and sagging.

“Dynamic Tension” is the name Charles Atlas gave to the system of exercises that he first popularized in the 1920s.

Dynamic Tension is a self-resistance exercise method which pits muscle against muscle. The practitioner tenses the muscles of given body part and then moves the body part against the tension as if a heavy weight was being lifted. However, Dynamic Tension exercises are not merely isometrics, since they call for movement. Instead, the method comprises a combination of exercises in three disciplines: isotonic, isokinetic, and some exercises in the isometric discipline.

Proponents assert that it is nearly impossible to be injured during exercise using this method because one’s own muscles provide the force and, as they tire, so the force used also decreases. Likewise, the benefits can continue beyond the more traditional exercise methods because as the practitioner grows stronger, the exercise becomes more intense.

This is the premise on which the Facial Fitness Systems’ exercise program is based. In just days, you will be able to see the results of this phenomenon right before your newly lifted eyes. “Because the muscles of the face and neck are smaller than most in other parts of the body, they respond more quickly to exercise.” says the founder of Facial Fitness Systems, Inc., Patricia Goroway.

  2. Facial exercises stimulate blood flow, increase muscle tone and can improve the overall aesthetic appearance of your face. As you age or gain weight, the natural shape of your face tends to change and skin can become heavy or sag in certain places. According to Patricia Goroway, author of “Facial Fitness,” facial exercises reverse these negative changes and help achieve a youthful appearance. Several exercises are available to assist in toning your face.
