So you're interested in or purchased the Cork Face De-Stress Kit "The Sparrow" but you have no idea how to use it. Don't worry, we are here to help! 

The kit comes with two pieces: a small reflexology ball and an adjustable trapezoid biting cork. Both pieces can be used to target different areas on the face and jaw. Below will give you the highlights. 

Face 
Small Ball 

Most times, we ignore our tight jaws and faces. Rolling has double benefits; it release tension and preclude aging. Use your cork ball and roll it gently around your jaw. Spend about a minute on each side.

Third Eye 
Small Ball 

An exciting practice to add to your rolling exercise is to lay with a ball underneath your third eye - the point between your brows. The third eye point is the subject of many spiritual beliefs and practices. Viewing it from a spiritual plain, stimulating the third eye can lead to increased clairvoyance, perception and precognition.

While, from a medical perspective, applying pressure to this point on the forehead helps improve concentration, ease headaches, and can also ameliorate eye strain if you are at a computer for a long time.

Jaw Release 
Trapezoid Biting Cork

Our jaw is the most frequently used joint in our body and it contains the strongest muscle in the human body. This also means it’s the place where we hold the most tension and most of us don't release that tension we are holding. 

Adding the Trapezoid Biting Cork to your routine is the perfect solution. Simply place the biting cork between your front teeth and bite down on it. With the cork held between your teeth, make some noise. Talk, sing, make “ahhh” sounds for 5-15 minutes - the shower or your morning commute in the car are great places to do it.

After 5 – 15 minutes take out the biting cork and then take another minute to massage your jaw like this: Use both hands. Put the pad of your 2nd, 3rd and 4th fingers on your mandible (just under and forward of your earlobe) — you’ll know you’re in the right place if you open your mouth a bit and feel the hinge joint of the jaw moving.

Once your fingers are in place, make repeated, small circular movements, about the size of the diameter of a quarter. Your fingers will stay touching the same skin (i.e. not traveling across it), but you will feel your fascia (the connective tissue under the skin) moving in circles with your fingers.

Use your 2nd, 3rd and 4th fingers all around your jaw like you're playing the saxophone or piano. Do 100 finger touches per side.
