Thanks Critic. Since the book is not available in english,would it be possible for you to share some new techniques from the second book? I am particularly interested in anything that help to get rid of NL! Thank you

Is it ok to pick and choose steps focusing on areas you want to target? I have read through the previous tanaka massage thread and some girls were complaining of a gaunt face after following the massage routine for a few months. I definitely wouldn't want that.

I have somewhat saggy cheeks that I'd like to improve. They're my main problem area right now. I'm worried this routine is too vigorous and could cause unnecessary damage.nSomebody mentioned how this broke down muscle fibers in the face or something.

I'm not a medical professional, but I'm pretty sure extended inactivity and certain diseases are the only things that can break down skeletal muscle tissue. (Idk. If anybody knows better than me, I'll definitely listen.)

You'd probably be ok just picking out the parts of the massage that appeal to you. But if you notice any unevenness etc. over time, definitely add a few more.

I had my forehead muscles frozen a couple of days ago. Is it ok to massage my forehead after botox?

I just wanted to add my experience with this massage.

I'm 35 slim with good skin but noticed the lower part of my face starting to droop slightly, so I decided to start this massage.

I was doing it every day / or every second day for three months when I/others started to notice that I was looking very gaunt in the face. I didn't loose weight so it was directly caused by the massage...I got really worried because it looked awful and I looked sick!

I stopped doing the massage and now three months on my face seems to be regaining the fat around my cheeks. So ladies unless you have a round face and want it to look slimmer then I'd stay away from this massage....just my take on it..

I think this came up elsewhere and the suggestion was it wasn’t such a good idea as it would help the botox leave the area. Also remember someone else talking about massaging, and saying if you have had botox to avoid massaging the botox area as it could cause the botox to migrate to different areas. So I would think it is best to avoid.

Thats what other people in this thread have said, regarding the gauntness. I guess this decides it for me. I don't want gauntness, I just want to make my cheeks look less saggy and as a anti-aging measure.

Hi Everyone,
I ahve been doing Tanaka massage everyday since last one week using virgin coconut oil.. I have noticed that immediately after the massage my entire face looks open and lifted up.. At first I thought that I was imagining things, but then I saw that after 12 hrs of massage, my face starts looking the same again ( looses the lifted look)...

Also one day I just did my massage and had my bath when My Aunt came over and told me that I was looking nice!!!
I think it is doing soemthing for me!!!

Thanks everyone for this thread..

But facial exercises too can give gauntness too in my opinion. If you search on EDS, you can find examples where people have gotten gaunt from doing them too. I don't understand the whys and it goes a bit over my head too to be honest, but I just figure it worth saying now.

I have been doing the massage based on this
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5D5Cvkp_zFE video on Youtube and I really like how my face looks afterwards. I do it maybe 3 times a week in the morning using sesame seed oil for massage.
I can definitely see and feel an immediate benefit
