Ko Bi Do - A natural, face lift

Cosmetic surgery and treatments may appear to be booming but a lot of women nowadays prefer a non-invasive, natural approach. Holistic facials combining face massage and acupressure techniques restore a healthy, blooming complexion and can effectively fight the signs of age. Such treatments, like the Ko Bi Do massage, Reiki for face and Facial Acupuncture, are not time-consuming, they leave no scars and although they can provide a botox-like effect, they keep the face full of life and expression.

What is a Ko Bi Do massage?

Coming from the ancient medical traditions of Japan, where beauty is the optimal state of health, this sophisticated massage technique produces a natural lifting effect without any invasive method. Utilizing meridians and acupoints in conjuction with a specialized massaging discipline, this unique modality consists of a genuine, natural face-lift. It is considered as one of the most powerful methods for the prevention and treatment of the signs of age as it effectively smoothes the features and tones the neck. The 90min session, a global anti-ageing face treatment, is combined with an active body massage that stimulates the flow of energy and is targeted on specific areas like the neck, the palms and the feet and induces a general feeling of comfort and wellness. Ko Bi Do anti-wrikle, re-pulping facial does not act merely on the skin. It also aims to stimulate the energy pathways (known as meridians) and to rebalance the internal organs and body systems, including the nervous system, offering a complete sense of relaxation and well-being.  

Ko Bi Do is an anti-wrikle, re-pulping facial treatment with a unique efficient technique that prolongs and gives back youth to the face, by stimulating the flow of energy, eliminating toxins and toning the facial muscles. 

Experiencing a Ko Bi Do massage

Wishing to discover the powerful benefits of this treatment, we visited the well known Orloff Spa at Life Gallery hotel in Athens in order to experience a 90min session of Ko Bi Do massage, with the signature of Orloff Spa Experts. Nuzzled amidst the luxuriant nature of Ekali, Orloff Spa invites guests to release all tension and revitalize their senses with world-class spa services, spa rituals from North Africa and superb aquatic facilities. 
The treatment started with the therapist placing warm towels under the neck and gently lifting and swaying the head, creating a sense of lightiness. It continued with gentle make up removing and exfoliation with slow hand's movements, followed by a massage at different speed levels, in order to improve the deep circulation of the face, the neck and the upper part of the chest. Then, the therapist used the special Ko Bi Do massage technique that was like "sculpting" the face, along with applying pressure to tsubos (pressure points). This procedure allowed the skin to tighten, it restored the facial muscles and tissues to their normal length, it brought elasticity and smoothed the appearance of the wrinles.  
During the application of the mask, the therapist performed a divine massage at the upper back, the hands and the feet, using reflexology pressure points to stimulate the internal organs of the body and create an overall sense of well-being. 
The treatment concluded with the application of the Géto Suprême cream by Cinq Mondes, an outstanding global anti ageing cream. The skin was extremely supple and soft and it was amazing to see that the lifting effect of this treatment is actually visible from the very first session.
A big thank you to Maria, the trainer & therapist, whose experienced hands work miracles.
