FAQ Anma

How do I use the Anma?

The best way to learn how to use the Anma is to watch the videos Christine has made available on her YouTube channel. Here’s a few I think you’ll find helpful:

Release your frown lines

Facial exercises and the anma

Releasing wrinkles with the anma

How much pressure is used with the Anma?

As counter intuitive as it may seem, the lighter you massage with the Anma the deeper the release. Never use enough pressure to stretch the skin. The objective is to skim the surface of your skin.
What is the Anma?

The ANMA is a small handheld device mimicking fingertips and thumbs. It is used to GENTLY massage and release deep facial tension. This action releases wrinkles, bunching, sagging, and overall tired facial muscles. 

Using the device will assist in bringing hyaluronic acid (the stuff in expensive injectables) to the surface of the skin for a fresher, plumper, and healthier skin.

The small size of 3-1/2 inches long x 2 inches wide x 2-1/2 inches tall makes it easy for travel. The fingertip like extensions are 1/2 inch deep. The thumb-like tips are 3/4 inch deep. It is made of high-grade acrylic.

How to Use:

The ANMA is easy to use. Simply move it gently over the whole face to warm up the tissues (you can use water or oil if you need better slip but if your room is cool enough, try it on dry skin). This begins to increase circulation and hydration by gently unraveling the hardened or tangled fascia. The secret is to NOT press hard. The fibroblasts (made up of collagen and elastin) which are found in the superficial layers of fascia, respond to the lightest touch.

Forehead & Scalp

Hold the Anma and massage the forehead lightly, vertically and horizontally. Move all the way up to the scalp. Repeat the movement for 3 minutes, or until the skin becomes warm.


Sandwich the brow between the fingers of the Anma and move back and forth gently in a windshield wiper motion. After you feel the tension in this area release, press the thumbs of the Anma into the pressure points of the eye area. Repeat the first and second process until you feel the tension in this area lessen. Massage under the eye along the orbital rim by gently moving the Anma towards the temples. 

Mid Face (Jaw/Cheek/Chin)

Move the Anma lightly back and forth over the cheekbone and up and down the side of the jaw. If you have TMJ issues, you can slowly increase the pressure to help relieve any tightness in this area. Next try pressing the thumb of the Anma into the pressure point of the jaw. Hold a few seconds then move gently up and down.

Lower Face & Neck

First stimulate the jawline by using the handle of Anma to gently sweep down the neck towards the collarbones. Repeat till you feel the tension release in this area. Then to finish rub the fingers of the Anma in gentle circular motions above the collarbone moving towards the outside of the body.
