According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, facial massage has a direct and obvious effect on the health of the organs through the meridians. The information from the outside world is mostly received by the facial senses, such as sight, hearing, and smell.
If the body is in a good state, the sensitivity of the five senses will be higher! Training and maintaining five sense functions can also stimulate the body’s response to make the activity vigorous, which can effectively curb aging.

Best ways to perform TCM meridian anti-aging technique
One reason gua sha works is because it moves the lymph!
A lymphatic drainage massage is designed to follow the pathways of the lymph, lymph nodes, and uses a soft touch to assist the body in draining and detoxifying.
The diaphragm rises and falls with the breath, acting as a pump. Getting your diaphragm moving with some deep belly breathing through your nose can help calm your nervous system and help you move inner lymph, too.
Inhale and send your breath to your belly (DanTian), feeling it soften and expand (focusing on your belly expanding, rather than your chest). Inhale even more and fill the lungs wide. As you exhale, let the breath fall out of you as the belly softens. Continue like this for a few minutes daily.
