from the 6th treatment, the treatment moves to the facial area.
6th to 8th treatment: pain and twitching in the facial area decrease slightly.
9th to 11th treatment: pain in the facial area disappears. twitching remained a little but became easier.

the symptoms seem to have disappeared after several treatments.


facial muscles

the facial area is covered with small muscles.
when the facial muscles that make facial expressions become fatigued, they can cause various symptoms.
the root of the problem is often a stiff neck or stiff shoulders, and in some cases the symptoms will not go away until the neck or shoulders are recovered.
this is also true for beauty.
if you have a stiff neck, no matter how much you treat the facial area, the effect will be weak.
many people who are really concerned about their beauty take care of their stiff neck.
