Kanebo Cosmetics Global Corporate Site


Kanebo Facial Massage is an original fusion of Western and Eastern massage techniques, incorporating both oil massage and acupressure (Shiatsu). The beauty therapist uses gentle touch to massage the face, neck, shoulders and décolleté to beautify the skin, improve circulation and reduce tension.

Kanebo Facial Massage is offered in two distinct treatment programs, Balancing Massage and Relaxing Massage. Both programs have scientifically proven effects, reflecting the company’s decades of experience as pioneer of aesthetic care in Japan. Balancing Massage and Relaxing Massage are widely acclaimed among CIDESCO* aestheticians and practiced in many exclusive spas and salons worldwide.

* Kanebo Facial Massage was presented at the CIDESCO World Congress 2001.
