We recently had a question from a reader who wonders if it’s okay to use Chinese spoon massage.
For those of you who have never heard of it, a Chinese spoon massage uses a porcelain Chinese soup spoon that is brushed across the face. An oil or other lubricant is smoothed on the face first, and then the spoon is dragged across the skin in an upward motion for no more than 10 minutes. Users claim it slims the face by relieving fluid build-up and toxins and gives it a “v”shape which is coveted by Asian women.
The spoons, which are typically made of porcelain, are available at most Chinese grocery stores.
I have found no New Age or occult elements in this practice. It appears to be nothing more than a simple beauty regime.
