It’s a rather tough massage with strong acupressure and strong strokes. Sometimes oils are also used.

Kyungrak is focused on restoring energy balance in the body, releasing physical and emotional tensions, while at the same time stimulating the blood and lymph circulatory system, the digestive system, and detoxification.

Today, Kyungrak is often used as a Face Massage treatment modality, applied to flush out the body’s toxins and reduce fluid retention in the face, while helping to define the jawline and create the trendy V-shaped face outline.

Additional benefits include the alleviation of sports and other musculoskeletal injuries and pains, the reduction of headaches, promotion of fertility, relief of insomnia, depression, anxiety, and stress, among other health benefits.
