Spoon massage places
If you decide to try a new method on the body, then it’s better to start from the back.
You will need the help of a husband or girlfriend. The back is massaged by moving the spoon from the tailbone upwards in a circular motion. The direction is from the spine along the ribs.
This procedure takes about 15 minutes.
But anti-cellulite massage of the buttocks, thighs and legs can be done independently.
To do this, take a larger spoon, cool them and brush them with cream. Instead of anti-cellulite remedies it is possible to use honey. It perfectly removes slags and tones the skin.
Apply spoons to the buttocks and massage them in a circular motion from the center to the side. Then - from the bottom up.
When working with your legs and hips, remember the sequence of movements. The inner side of the thigh is massaged upwards, and the outer side is the other way round. Move the spoon vigorously from the knee to the pelvis.
Anti-cellulite massage procedure takes 30 minutes.
Now let's do the belly.
With the same cold, smeared with a cream spoon, we press with a pressure in a clockwise direction around the navel. Then move the spoon up, and then - sideways.
By the time - 5-10 minutes.
For the hands of the spoon will need to cool and lubricate with nourishing cream.
From the elbow bend in a spiral movement slide up the inside of the arm. Now slide the spoon on the outside of the shoulder.
Give your hands at least 10 minutes - this is necessary to get rid of skin laxity.
Décolleté is massaged with extremely warm (!) Spoons.
It is desirable to lubricate them with a special cream for the neckline. Wheatgrass oil or plain olive oil will also give a good effect. The massage here is simple: from the decollex, move in a circular motion towards the armpits.
By the time - 5-10 minutes.
For a neck massage, you also need a warm spoon smeared with the same cream or oil as for the chest.
Rotate from the base of the neck to the chin. The skin will become more elastic, will get a tone, and the second chin will gradually disappear.
By the time - 5-10 minutes.
Face massage with spoons
Spoon face massage is very popular.
You can apply face cream before the massage on the cleansed face or on the convex side of the spoon, just before the exercise. In addition, the face massage is alternately heated and cold spoons.
For a massage, we will need 2 or 4 teaspoons, 15 - 20 minutes of time and your desire to do all the exercises for the face and neck.
If you decide to improve the effect of using the cream, putting it directly on the spoons, then do it as follows.
- We dip the spoons into the container: one - in the cold, the other - in hot water.
- Take out one spoon.
- We dip with a napkin.
- Apply the cream.
First, we work with hot spoons, then with cold ones. Before you put the cream on a hot spoon, check, touching the wrist, is it too hot?
1) "Line" - smooths wrinkles between the eyebrows. Need 2 spoons. Place the hot spoon between the eyebrows and press it 6 times, then move upwards along the forehead. We drop the spoon back into the container with hot water and do the same with a cold spoon.
2) "Spiral" - smooths wrinkles on the forehead. It will take 2 spoons, both of which are lowered into a container of hot water. Apply the spoon to the right temple and draw a spiral with three circular movements, then move the spoon across the forehead to the left temple. We draw the same spiral in three circular motions. We take a new spoon, we start the exercise again, only already on the left temple.
3) “Zigzag” - the task is the same, smoothing wrinkles on the forehead. Take 4 spoons. Place a couple of hot spoons on the forehead (in the middle). Next, you need to carry both spoons at once from the middle to the temples, as if drawing a zigzag (send the spoons in different directions). Reach the temples and perform 6 light presses. Repeat with cold spoons.
4) “Drum” - smooths nasolabial folds. It will take 4 spoons. With hot spoons, tap 10 times on the nasolabial folds and around them (perform with inflated cheeks). Do a few repetitions.
5) “Letter O” - the goal is the same as in Ex. №4. It will take 2 spoons. Apply anti-wrinkle cream on hot spoons, mouth should be ajar, as when pronouncing the letter “O”. Place the spoons on the wings of the nose, perform a circular motion, gradually get down, drawing the "antennae" to the lips (corners). Perform circular motions again. Close the mouth, heat the spoons and you can do the exercise again a second time. Only 3 repetitions.
6) "Mustache" - smooths wrinkles around the lips. It will take 2 teaspoons, which are hot in a horizontal position above the upper lip. Keep your mouth open, say the sound "E". Moving in small movements in the form of a semicircle, move to the corners of the mouth, drawing the antennae. They stopped and slightly pressed the spoons in the corners of the lips. Then turn them upright and move to the earlobes as if trying to raise the corners of the lips. When you reach the ear lobes, stop, press three times and go up the ear muscle. Repeat - 2 times.
7) "Wave" - eliminate dark circles and bags under the eyes. It will take 2 chilled spoons. Position them near the inner corners of the eyes. Using wave-like movements, move the spoons to the temples. Perform 3 presses on the temples, move to the ears. Make a stop for 6 seconds, again move the spoons to the eyelids, linger for 2 seconds. Total - 3 repetitions.
8) “From the crow's feet” - the purpose of the exercise is clear from the title. It will take 4 spoons, which will need to apply a gel or cream that fights with such wrinkles. Place the heated spoons near the corners of the eyes, above the cheekbone. Perform 3 circular movements, move to the temples. Stop - just a few seconds. Repeat 2 more times. Now perform chilled spoons (1 time). Again 3 repetitions heated and 1 - cooled. Total repetitions - 3.
False massage is not recommended if you have the following problems:
- the presence of pustules on the skin,
- the occurrence of colds, accompanied by fever,
- the presence of rash herpes character.
These are the miracles that an ordinary spoon can do. Only half an hour of massage every morning will provide you with elasticity of the skin, toned facial features and help you get rid of cellulite. So, if you have spoons, you can take it right now.
It is easy to be beautiful, accustom yourself to daily care, and you will succeed. False massage does not even heal old and serious problems, but it can prevent them.

- Hot or warm spoons help smooth wrinkles, tighten skin and improve face shape,

The secret of spoon massage is that heat and cold are alternately carried out to the nerve endings on the skin and activate their functions. After this procedure, the cream and serum used for care, better penetrate into the skin cells.
What it is?
Chinese massage is known for a long time, especially rejuvenating, thanks to which all Chinese women look so fresh and young. There are several techniques, one of them involves the use of spoons.
But this technique was refined and adapted to the modern women of all countries and peoples by the German cosmetologist Rene Koch, who learned about this interesting method from his mother. And that, in turn, every morning applied cold spoons to the eyelids and very quickly put itself in order.
In fact, the massage with spoons is similar to an ordinary massage. The circular smooth movements of the convex part of the spoon allow you to affect not only the skin, but also the subcutaneous space, the capillaries. Due to this, the blood supply improves, and hence the blood supply to all tissues.
And with normal blood circulation, metabolic processes, cell regeneration and the production of some important substances (for example, elastin and collagen) are accelerated. All this together provides the effect of the procedure. But also the method is based on the effects of heat and cold.
The cold allows you to eliminate the swelling that is a problem for most women. And heat expands the pores and increases the permeability of the skin, which makes it even more effective to use certain products. A combination of cold and heat - this is even more tangible effect!
What is required for a massage?
So prepare the following devices and equipment:
- Spoons. If you want to process all parts of the body, prepare spoons of different sizes and shapes (one pair for the same two-handed operation). It is best to carry out the procedure with silver or nickel silver devices, as they have a beneficial effect on the body (we all heard about the benefits of silver) and do not rust.
- Water. It will require both cold water (or ice cubes) and hot. Instead of water, you can use a decoction of herbs.
- Olive oil. You can also combine massage with aromatherapy elements using some essential oil. Enough a few drops.
- Prepare a terry towel.
- You can use your usual means (for example, creams for wrinkles or cellulite).
We offer several manipulations:
- To get rid of eyelid puffiness and bags under eyes, dip spoons in ice or in cold water, apply convex parts to eyelids, cool again and repeat steps at least 5-7 times. Then apply spoons to the area under the eyes. At the same time make smooth rolls from side to side and from top to bottom. You can lubricate the surface with eye cream or olive oil.
- Smooth wrinkles between eyebrows. Cool one spoon with ice and heat another with hot water. Apply a cold spoon to the nose, press it lightly on the skin, then with a little pressure, lead up to the forehead. Now do the same with a hot spoon. Repeat the procedure 10 times.
- To remove the hated “crows feet”, heat two spoons and brush them with anti-wrinkle cream or at least olive oil. Attach the spoons with convex surfaces to the temples, make 3-4 rotational movements, rolling the spoons, and then, with pressure, lead them to the hairline. Repeat this 3 times with hot appliances and as many with cold ones.
- To get rid of wrinkles on the forehead will help this technique: heat the spoons, place next to each other in the middle of the forehead. Now rolls lead devices to the temples. Then from the temples start walking towards the middle of the forehead. You can also move the device from one temple to another and vice versa by rotating movements. When the spoons have cooled, heat them again. Do this massage for 2-3 minutes.
- We remove the nasolabial folds. Open your mouth and stretch your lips slightly. Place the heated spoons under the wings of the nose, make 2-3 rotational movements, then move in wavelike movements to the corners of the mouth. In this area, also perform several rotational movements, and then undulate, rise again to the wings of the nose. Repeat all this at least 5 times.
- To get rid of flabbiness in the cheekbones, dip spoons in hot water and heat. Place them vertically under the corners of the mouth at the edge of the chin. Wavy or rotational movement to the earlobes. Reheat the appliances, position them in the same way, but slightly open your mouth and smile (or say the letter “E” or “E”). Re-lead the spoons to the loops. Reaching the moches, you can make a few pressure.
- To remove the chin, place two heated spoons right on the lower jaw, on the chin. Lead the instruments to the ears with light pressure. Return the spoons and now move them to the ears in waves.
Massage against cellulite
Anti-cellulite massage with spoons is also effective. Here are a few tricks:
- Cool the spoons, smear them with anti-cellulite cream, place over the knee on the inside of the thigh. With pressure, drive the instruments up to the groin, paying special attention to the most problematic areas. Then move the spoons in a wave-like motion, and then zigzag. Do the same on the outside of the thighs, but move from top to bottom.
- To tighten the buttocks, cool the spoons and grease them in olive oil, place under the buttocks at the top of the inner side of the thighs. Keep the instruments at the base of the legs, moving to the outside of the thigh. At first, simply press down with the spoons on the skin, then make rotational movements, and then wave.
- We work on the stomach: cool the spoons, brush them with cream, place them near the navel and move them in different directions with rotational movements. Then move in wave-like movements from bottom to top and vice versa.
What you need for massage spoons
To proceed to the spoon massage you need to prepare such things:
- Four spoons - better if they will silver. Such a metal is considered a good antioxidant, it carries nutrients deep into the skin and provides effective skin nourishment. If there are no silver spoons, then ordinary stainless steel appliances will do;
- Two tanks with hot and cold water. In the cold can be added ice cubes or decoction of herbs. You can take plain green tea that is pre-chilled in the fridge,
- Massage oil or nourishing cream. Oil can take any that is suitable for skin type and does not cause irritation. You can perform the procedure with the usual nourishing cream, but it should be applied to the skin plentifully. Spoons should slide easily without stretching the skin,
- Cotton napkin. It is useful not to stain clothes, and then wipe off the remnants of cream or oil from the face.
Massage spoons can be of different sizes - from coffee to dining. It is recommended to use first dessert spoonsand then, when the massage technique becomes clear, it will be possible to resize the devices for different zones.
Features perform a spoon massage
There are several recommendations that will make the procedure more efficient.
- Before the massage, the spoons are treated with an antiseptic or boiled for a couple of minutes. In the future, they must be stored separately from the rest of the dishes, ideally, if they lie in a cotton bag,

- Лицо предварительно распаривают над емкостью с травяным отваром. Эта процедура позволяет открыть поры и улучшить кровообращение,
- Massage oil or nourishing cream is abundantly applied to the face. It must be remembered that the spoons should easily slide over the surface without displacing the skin. If the skin of the face is too oily, then you can replace the oil with a low-fat kefir,
- Spoon massage should be performed exclusively on the massage lines,
- Massage is performed with a little pressure. Moreover, the degree of pressure must be controlled independently so that no bruises are formed on the face.
It is best to perform the procedure early in the morning, applying a favorite nourishing cream on the face. Thanks to the spoon massage, the swelling is quickly removed from the face and the skin cells receive the necessary nutrients. A woman who has had her spoon massage in the morning looks beautiful all day long.
You can usually make massage with spoons immediately after washing. To do this, you can keep a set of spoons in the bathroom, which are alternately heated under a stream of hot and cold water. This is considered an express method of such a massage.
If you want to relax after a hard day at work, then the procedure is performed a couple of hours before bedtime. At the same time, herbs are added to a container with water, which relieve tension. It can be mint, lemon balm or chamomile.

What is needed for the procedure
Let's talk in detail about the main tool. What size spoons are needed for a massage?
For starters, take a medium sized “tool”. Dessert spoons are best suited. Then, when you fully master the technique, it is easy to determine what size spoon you need.
For a massage of the eyelids or eyes, teaspoons may suit you, and tablespoons for a general massage.
As for the material. Ideally worth taking out of silver or nickel silver. Silver is a powerful antioxidant, in addition, it helps the useful substances from the means for massage deeper and more intensely absorbed into the layers of the epidermis, it is also known for its disinfecting effect. Silver spoon massage will be especially good for people with skin problems.
If the silver instrument was not at hand, then go to the kitchen and take the usual stainless steel appliances.
Tip We recommend that you pick up the massage spoons and then remove them from the rest of the cutlery. In general, store them in a different place, preferably in the bathroom, where you most likely will conduct the procedure.
Small cups with hot and cold water
It will be better to replace simple water with broth of a camomile, mint, a train, some other grass or green tea. To keep the water as cold as possible, you can put ice cubes in it.
When you gain enough experience, you can massage in the bath, do not make bowls, but cool or heat the spoons with a tap.
Massage oil or cream
Oil can take any. For the face it is best to take almond, coconut, peach, jojoba, avocado, and even ordinary olive oil will do! The main thing that you do not have allergies, and it is suitable for your skin type.
Instead of butter, you can take any body cream. The tool must be quite generously applied to the skin so that the spoons do not create friction and do not stretch the skin, creating new wrinkles.
How it works?
Massage with warm, cold or hot spoons is effective because different temperatures excite the nerve endings of the epidermis, thereby stimulating their work. It also improves blood circulation and metabolic processes.
When performing massage with hot spoons, pores open, nourishing creams and oils are absorbed better, which is why the effect is achieved faster. Proper movement will remove excess fluid and toxins from the tissues.
It helps or not facial massage with spoons, you can read reviews on the Internet. Most of the reviews are not just positive, they are enthusiastic. In any case, the procedure is not so expensive, has no health risks, so why not try?
Simple rules to consider
When performing massage, you must follow some rules:
- As mentioned above, the massage spoons should be stored separately from the rest of the cutlery. Before use, they need to be thoroughly washed and treated with antiseptic.
- Of course, the face before the procedure should be cleaned of makeup, cleansed with cleansing milk and tonic.
- Apply enough oil or cream to the skin so that the spoons slide easily without creating friction.
- Needless to say, massage should be carried out clearly along the massage lines.
- Self-massage is good because you can control the degree of pressure, thereby preventing the formation of hematomas, injury to the skin and vessels located close to the skin surface.
- Before you begin to massage with hot spoons, make sure that they are of moderate temperature. Burns you to anything!
- The ideal time for these manipulations is morning. Set aside 20 minutes of your time, at this time let nothing distract you.
How to do a facial massage with spoons
The procedure should be started with the eyelids and around the eyes. To do this, use teaspoons, they will work most conveniently. First cool them down with cold water or a decoction of herbs with ice cubes, then gently massage the eyelids and eyes.
Simply attach the spoons and wait until the cutlery has reached body temperature. If you have bags under your eyes, then you should not just attach the spoon to the lower eyelid, but carry it from the inside corner to the temple.
All manipulations must be repeated five times: cool, apply - wait for the heating and cool again.
Important. During the massage of the eyes, always move to the temples, in places where there are wrinkles, gently press, but do not rub, so you risk stretching the skin.
The next phase is a facial massage with hot spoons. They need to be dipped in hot water or decoction, and then led with a little pressure along the massage lines. On the skin, first apply a generous layer of massage products.
For the fatty type, it is better to use nut, sesame or almond oil, kefir is also excellent.
For dry type - oil flax and jojoba. For normal - apricot kernel oil, peach or olive.
Unaccustomed to you, it may be inconvenient to perform the procedure with two spoons at once, so you can work through one side of the face first, then the other. Here, too, we repeat all the manipulations five times.
Tip To enhance the effect, it is recommended to alternate hot spoons with cold ones during the massage.
From the wrinkles on the bridge of the nose will help the following action: it is necessary to attach a table or dessert spoon between the eyes, and press it several times, then continue moving along the lines from the center of the forehead to the temples. Then we start moving from eyebrows to the hairline.
Some of the skin under the nose is simply pushed with a teaspoon. To remove wrinkles around the mouth, it is necessary during the procedure how to pronounce the letter “E”, slightly stretching the corners of the lips.
Tip To remove deep wrinkles in the area of the nasolabial folds, you need to inflate the cheeks and lightly pat the problem areas with a spoon.
Also, clapping, you can remove a double chin.
In fact, there is a lot of tech. Skilled craftsmen can develop their own technique, but keep it secret. But despite these circumstances, there are quite a few training videos.
On these videos you can quickly learn how to massage the spoons yourself at home. Separately, I want to talk about gouache, originally from China.
Gua sha - literally from Chinese, literally means "scrape away the old." The technique of the procedure is a special impact on the points of the face. Stone or horn scrapers are used as tools.
The advantages of such a massage are that it is suitable for absolutely everyone, it does not require the use of oils or creams, as it does not stretch the skin. The procedure is not prohibited even to those who give Botox injections.
Due to the mild effect of scrapers on the skin, the procedure can be performed every day. It is believed that if you use jade scrapers, you will not only heal your body, but also free yourself from the negative energy that accumulates in a day.
Gouache massage results
With this massage, the following effects are noted:
- First of all, this procedure perfectly enhances the lymph flow and blood circulation in the cells.
- Effectively removes toxins from the cells of the epidermis.
- Accelerates metabolic processes, due to which natural rejuvenation occurs.
- It relaxes well, has a sedative effect, so this type of massage is best done in the evening.
During this procedure, it turns out not only the recovery of the skin and the body, but also the restoration of the nervous system, the normalization of sleep.
Massage with wooden spoons
Another type of massage that I would like to highlight. This procedure is based on the Vedic old Russian traditions. In ancient times, if someone in the family was sick, they tried to cure him with wooden spoons.
It was believed that the tree is the strongest energy element that helps to fill a person with a sense of harmony, vigor and well-being, as well as to remove negative energy, something like the evil eye, fears, negative thoughts and other things.
The massage could be performed in two ways:
- through the fabric (clothes), which should be natural,
- on the naked body, in this case, used oil or honey.
The technique is quite close with gouache and Japanese massage with bamboo sticks. Spoons make scratching, tapping, point pressure, slaps.
Today you can get a recommendation from a cosmetologist to undergo an effective anti-cellulite massage course with wooden spoons. You can read about it in detail in other publications of our blog and watch educational videos. One thing is to say, the result will be amazing. The skin will become elastic, smooth, and unlike the palms, there are no bruises after the spoon when clapping.
