THE MODIOLUS




The modiolus, the central hub, or navel of the facial muscles, it is a connecting point for many muscles of the face. Tension in this area can have an effect on the whole face. About 1inch to the side corner of the mouth, may feel slightly thicker here than the rest of the cheek. Gently massage using thumb and index finger. Your shoulders and neck may also feel the benefits of this.

FACIAL MUSCLES



Facial muscles  

Did you know that in the head, neck, face, ears and tongue there are 57 muscles in total? 

A study at Northwestern University in Chicago proved that Face Yoga can make you look 3 years younger when practicing daily over a 20 week period . “If the muscle underneath the skin becomes bigger through Face Yoga, the skin has more stuffing underneath it and the firmer muscle appears to make the shape of the face more full,” said senior study author Emily Poon, an assistant research professor in dermatology. “Muscle growth is increasing the facial volume and counteracting the effects of age-related fat thinning and skin loosening.”  . When referring to Face Yoga, Dr. Murad Alam, the lead study author said “individuals now have a low-cost, non-toxic way for looking younger.”
