When 5 readers took on the challenge for 2 weeks, the self-care recommended by Yusen Kimura, a lymphatic care trainer, had the effect of softening the facial muscles, removing swelling, and thinning the nasolabial folds. In the 3rd special feature on moisturizing skin care, we will introduce the basic method.

Profile of Yumi Kimura
Born in Toyama prefecture in 1959. Representative of LHJ (Life & Health Joy). He graduated from the Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Toyama. While working at a pharmacy, he encountered lymphatic care while looking for ways to deal with patients who suffered from severe headaches, and became an instructor. He supports health and beauty both as a pharmacist and an instructor, and energetically holds lectures. His books include “Lymph Care Revolution 2” (published by Shufunotomosha).
Introducing the basic lymphatic care that five readers challenged
How was the change in readers last time? This time, I will introduce a self-care method that specifically improves lymphatic circulation.
“When you use your hand to vibrate, please do it gently, with the feeling of giving a very slight vibration,” says Mr. Kimura. The “microvibration” is transmitted to the muscles and has the effect of loosening them.
Also, it is recommended to do it “when you wake up in the morning” and “before you go to bed at night”. Some of the readers who tried it for two weeks said that their stiff shoulders disappeared with just this basic care.
1. First, loosen the muscles around the chin that are often used
Place both hands on the lower jaw and gently vibrate. The trick is to move it from your elbow, not your wrist (about 10 seconds).
2. Slightly vibrate the entire arm to loosen the shoulder area
While gently touching the triceps brachii muscle (back of the upper arm) with the other hand, vibrate the palm facing forward (left and right for about 10 seconds). It has the effect of making the muscles conscious of the brain and loosening the cutaneous muscles and superficial muscles.
Next, let’s vibrate from the upper arm so that it shakes finely left and right (about 10 seconds left and right). By vibrating the bones, skeletal muscles and deep muscles are loosened.
The triceps muscle is on the back of the upper arm. If you can’t reach your back, just touch the side of your upper arm.
3. Loosen around the clavicle where lymph flows
Place your hand on your collarbone and move your shoulder back and forth and up and down (4 back and forth and up and down 4 reciprocations each).
4. Rotate the collarbone and shoulder blade together
Place your hands on your shoulders and slowly roll them up (4 reps x 2 sets), intending to move your collarbones and shoulder blades together.
Gently loosen the neck area that supports the head
To finish, wrap your neck softly with both hands and give it a gentle vibration. Look up and lift your chin slightly (5 seconds x 2 sets).
Next time, I will introduce lymphatic care around the face . It makes it easier to get firmness and moisture, so check it out!
