Kobido facial – known as the natural face lift- is a traditional Japanese facial massage technique known for its anti-ageing effects. Using a combination of gentle strokes and acupressure, Kobido facial massage is a deeply relaxing, rejuvenating treatment that has been specifically designed to reduce the signs of ageing by toning facial muscles, improving circulation, and promoting overall skin health.

Benefits of a Kobido facial

  • Enhances skin elasticity and firmness
  • Improves facial muscle tone and definition
  • Stimulates lymphatic drainage, reducing puffiness and excess fluid from the face
  • Increases blood and oxygen supply to the face to promote a radiant complexion and natural glow
  • Alleviates stress, promoting relaxation and well-being

Our recommendation

“Kobido is especially beneficial during the winter months to support overall health. In colder weather, the skin tends to get dry due to the cold and dry air, leading to muscle tension and fatigue. Kobido not only promotes muscle relaxation but also stimulates blood and lymphatic circulation. This helps keep the skin hydrated, improving tone and counteracting the negative effects of winter weather. Additionally, Kobido massage is designed to harmonise the body’s vital energy, providing general stress relief and enhancing overall well-being during a time of the year when the body may be more prone to discomfort” – our Lead Therapist

What to expect during a Kobido facial

After being greeted by your therapist, a short consultation will be held to identify any specific concerns you would like your therapist to address. Your treatment will take place on the heated massage bed, where you will be asked to lie face up. 

Kobido facial massage includes a cleansing and exfoliating mask alongside gentle massage techniques on the face, neck and shoulders with the use of oils. Kobido facial massage uses a range of specialised massage techniques to promote lymphatic drainage, muscle relaxation, and the stimulation of collagen and elastin production to improve skin firmness, reduce puffiness and lessen skin creases.

FAQs about a Kobido facial

Basingstoke Sports Centre and Belvedere House, Basingstoke

Yes, Kobido facial massage is tailored to suit your skin’s needs so is suitable for most skin types. Individuals with specific skin concerns should consult their therapist.

Avoid heavy makeup, exposure to direct sunlight, and extreme temperatures immediately after the session to maximise the benefits of your treatment. Some people may experience slight redness temporarily after the massage but this will subside quickly. We recommend drinking plenty of water to stay hydrated as it helps aid recovery and flushes any toxins out of your system that have been released through the massage. 

While suitable for most people, Kobido facial massage may not be recommended for individuals with recent facial surgeries or procedures (such as botox, dermal fillers), active skin conditions or open wounds. We advise caution during pregnancy (please book our pregnancy massage) and for those with medical conditions affecting the face. Ensure you have completed your online health profile so your therapist has the full picture of your health ahead of your treatment and consult your therapist if you are unsure. 

A course of sessions is recommended initially, followed by sessions every 4-6 weeks for sustained benefits.

Kobido facial massage is available as part of our membership packages, to make regular sessions more affordable.

I am currently awaiting possible full shoulder replacement due to major wear and tear which is causing enormous pain and restriction of movement. With a mixture of massage of the muscles and soft tissue near, but not on the shoulder blade or upper arm, and some reflexology Jen was able to reduce the pain and make some arm movements much less painful. Pending surgery I expect more visits to keep as much pain at bay as possible.

Thank you for the deep muscle massage sessions to help me with the pain I have been experiencing in my arm.  Already in the first session I felt a lot better and after the second I can now ride my bike without the intense burning sensation. I also enjoyed the more relaxing therapies I had at your pamper evening, well done to you and your team.
