I've only done it twelve times in twelve days so far. I don't know if it's the best, but I really like it. It doesn't take long to do, feels wonderful and seems to soften my face.

Sandooch, I've read your posts from your transformation (btw, congratulations!) and was wondering if you bought a book on the Tanaka massage or just followed YouTube videos. I'd like to start it together with a face exercise program.
Thank you!

fitgeneer - it works great with Facial Exercises. I've only used the you tube videos and happy with that.

Yes, like sister, I just used the video on youtube and memorized it. Most people say it takes them only 3 minutes to do, but I've timed it and 3 minutes seems like I'm rushing it. When I go at a steady pace, I can do it just under 5 minutes, which is pretty quick.

Good luck with it. Oh, and thank you for the congrats.

It's one of the best massages, but I don't think it's the say-all-end-all massage. In particular, I think that petrissage (rolling body tissues) is also excellent. Both are great but do different things. I personally would do both--at least one drainage-type massage and one rolling/kneading/more aggressive tissue manipulation massage. Just my 2 cents.

I can't say it's "the best," but it's definitely awesome. Wink

For reasons I still don't understand, it will get your face INSANELY clean if you use OCM with the Tanaka message. Closer to the surface plugs stand absolutely no chance.
