Question
I really like massages, especially facial massages. I don't want to go see some one every time I want a massage. How can I get myself a facial massage at home?

Thanks

Answer
Hi Patrick,

There are good books and possibly videos available through libraries, Kindle books at Amazon (and if you don't have a Kindle, Amazon also has free reader apps), and videos on YouTube. YouTube.com has a wealth of information.  I just searched there and found this listing of do it yourself facial massage videos:

I have seen articles in the past in magazines that were quite good, too.

If you have had facial massage before, you already have a pretty good idea of what happens and how it feels.

If you don't want to do it yourself, get a friend or family member to trade.

Enjoy!
