I've seen varying opinions on this. I always thought it was best to pat and not rub. But some say they've gotten benefits from facial massage etc. And of course there's the issue of blood flowing from rubbing/massaging too. So what is your take on this? Better to rub and get blood flowing or better to not rub?

I know you know mine having used OCM for nearly 20 years! Laughing

I don't go for yanking,pulling or tugging on my skin but a nice gentle massage does wonders for the skin IMHO! Very Happy

OCM and the massage has been the one really long term constant in my routine for a very long time, and at 58 my skin is nice and thick, plump and really no sag except for slight hooding of lids!
I believe that is from the benefit of massage. Smile

I posted a firming massage link on the OCM thread, I will try and hunt it down and post it for you!

I suppose it depends on what you're applying to the skin. If it's an oil, then there's lots of slippage for massage. However, some creams sink right into the skin so if you attempt to massage you might drag and pull the skin.

Overall though, I'm in favour of massage.

Totally agree with Keliu, I always use oil with OCM and therefore my massage!

I use coconut oil when I do my Tanaka massage. I'm still relatively new to doing this, and will admit that I haven't been too consistent in doing it daily due to being exhausted at the end of the day from extensive yard work for the past few weeks. But when I do do it consistently, it really does make my skin look firmer and softer. Plus, the massage just feels so good.
