Ko bi do facial massage is a Japanese massage known for its natural lifting effects. Performed on a regular basis, this facial massage stimulates the preservation of the youthfulness of the face by reducing wrinkles, firming the contours of the face and restoring radiance to your skin. The technique has been inspired by the Anma movement used in chinese massages.
Indeed, Ko Bi Do technique has been developped in 1472 in Japan, after the empress asked for a face massage in order to maintain its beauty and youth. Two Anma Masters competed to know who used the best technique. After several months, they were still no winner. The two masters decided to join their force to found the Kobido house. This house became a private place of relaxation and beauty dedicated to the imperial family.
Ko Bi Do technique is passed on from Master to pupil since 26 generations. The last known Master at this time is Doctor Mochizuki. According to him, Kobido means "Ancestral Way of Beauty".
