Young-Eun Park, Gi-Yeon Kim, Kyung-Ja Jang
With the progress of current skin beauty industry, a lots of beauty salons have conducted massage programmed with diverse products and therapies. It can be said that there are unmeasurably many massages carried out by the goal of a program. However, the expansion and demand of esthetic industry have brought up not a little side-effect due to the market extension of technical education. Unverified technique and program expansion are observed to be conducted at other place than institutionalized school or college. The flood of unverified technique may be detrimental to national health. For esthetic area to take its firm ground as an academic and technical one will ensure physiological research on massage technique and effectiveness suited human physiology. Thus this study strove to come up with underlying data of an effect on human body of arm massage direction, pressure, velocity basically practiced at most beauty salons in our country. Arm massage is practiced in a service type without charge, the hand and arm massage of which is based on stimuli. Also the paper reviewed the direction of arm massage effecting beauty face. The research defines 15 arm massage movements as an experimental model, designs it to strong upward arm massage( massage pressure applied in upward action) and strong downward arm massage(massage pressure applied in downward action), and regards pressure difference by arm massage direction as the factor of study scope. And it examined the form change of the face having the closest relation with the muscle connected to the arm. The results could confirm that the circumference of the arms subjected to the two massages. The subjects of the experimental group of strong upward group showed highly changed variant ratio in the arm circumference and facial length reduction, where arm massage is found to bring about transformation of facial muscle and muscular membrane through value change of facial length. This experiment findings suggest following matters. Adverse effect dispersed to the whole human body is high due to human stream resistant massage. Beauty-purposed massage should take into account the effect of velocity and pressure and direction on individuals. Based on academic data on massage direction, pressure, and velocity, strong upward massage would produce a good effect on face and arm parts.
