I discovered "New Beauty: The Acupressure Facelift" about five months ago and have practiced Lindsay's acupressure methods nearly every day since. I have noticed great results! I love this book and wish it would be re-printed. She provides a wonderful alternative to surgical facelifts--something plastic surgeons certainly wouldn't like! Still, I think all women should be able to learn about the benefits of facial massaging and exercises and decide for themselves if this method is right for them. It IS right for me.

I found this book several years ago at the public library. It delivers just what it promises, a useful method for improving circulation, health and thereby skin tone and color. Using this method provides a viable alternative to surgery. It's longer lasting, relaxing, non-invasive and cost-effective. A valuable book for anyone committed to self-responsible self-maintenance.
Because it's out of print, I've borrowed this book again several times since. I've also looked for something simliar to purchase, but nothing comes close. Alas!

In this well-written and illustrated book, Lindsay Wagner and her collaborator present a 20-minute acupressure program that will make a positive difference in facial looks and health too, as acupressure points usually have more than one beneficial effect when stimulated. It's easy to do and takes no more energy than sitting upright and stimulating various facial and upper body acupressure points with your fingertips for one minute each! There are also valuable and interesting tips on a healthy lifestyle, majoring in the beneficial effects of a balanced vegetarian diet. This is information that is just as up-to-date today as it was when originally published, and should remain in print for the benefit of anyone who wants or needs to make use of it! I can testify that the facelift works just as well for men as women; I can also say that I have gifted an actress friend with this book, and within only a couple of weeks of practice, she emailed me that people around her had begun to tell her that she was looking ten years younger! There are still used copies of this book available--try it for yourself!

My chiropractor recommended this book to me as I have lost some weight several moths ago and was getting sagging skin as a result. I had asked my chriropactor for some suggestions and this book was the suggestion. The steps are simple and so far it does seem really be working. I would recommed trying it out.

This book was worth every penny and then some.

The technique works. Not only do you look younger

(after repeated use), but your face feels rejuvinated.

Thank you, Lindsay!

I'm just embarking on using these techniques, at age 58. Ms. Wagner was obviously far, far younger when she wrote this and she's older than I am now. I have seen her on Warehouse 13 in a recurring role the last year or so, and it seems that this may not have been the panacea that she thought. However, everyone has different genes and aging will eventually catch up with us all. I believe she's age 64 now.

I'm lucky in that I have my Mom's skin and she looked wonderful until she died last year at age 86. So I'm hoping that this will be helpful. I'm seeing good results already in neck, chin and jowls area using techniques in concert with Pevonia firming creams (neck/bust and face). My eyes area, surprisingly, is just fine so far. But will keep using these exercises in that area as well.

Edit / Update: I'm using this still and today is Feb 27, 2014. I have to admit I've been negligent about the eye thing but will try harder. However, I've put together a recipe/formula for essential oils for firming and lightening marks, and used with the chin slap 2 x per day, my neck looks amazing and I have my jaw line back! I've expanded on the chin slap and follow the jaw line all the way to the ear. It increases circulation and I'm very pleased still.

Written years ago, Lindsey is an example of "putting her beliefs into action". Looking youthful and energetic, Lindsey took an old practice and made it new, to fit into today emphasis on women keeping their youthful look with practices that have been shown to work!! Just look at the author!!!

I bought this book while I was doing some research on facial exercise books. After having tried Eva Fraser's Facial Workout, which was not the book for me because I didn't quite manage to do many of the exercises, I was curious to try another approach. I have to confess that what attracted me to this book to start with was the very small price (they have become quite a bit more expensive for some reason!). But I was not disappointed, not in the least! I can't say that I see a lot of changes as I only started doing the exercises yesterday but I really enjoy the simplicity and the fact that they don't only seem to make you look younger but also work for the eye sight (that I knew because of the many books I read on bettering your eye sight naturally) and the sinuses, one of my other problems! I really feel relaxed and energized after doing the exercises; I just wish she would have thought of including a detachable page with small photos of each exercise and a short explanation so that one could take it everywhere. So far I still get a bit confused with the acupressure points and whether the circles are inwards, outwards.... One of my aqua gym books has that option of copying a page with small photos so that one can keep them near the pool, very handy indeed!

Bear in mind that this is quite an old book so some of the advice is maybe not up to date. Stating that vegetarians have less health and weight problems I find a bit farfetched. Ok, she felt well being a vegetarian but it is not a lifestyle that suits everybody and many people who eat meat are very healthy and have a good weight! Eating a low fat diet is something that is being revised more and more as well as too much fiber.
