Facial Reflexology works by using gentle facial massage techniques for precise stimulation of reflex points, nerve points and zones on the face and scalp. As with hand or foot reflexology, there are points on the face that represent areas and systems within the body.
The aim is to help reduce symptoms and effects of many common ailments but also to provide total relaxation, thus encouraging the body and mind to start to heal. The face has a high density of reflex points which are very sensitive to signals sent by the organs and other areas of the body and their response to stimulation is quickly transmitted to the part of the body concerned. The proximity of the face to the brain and cranial nerves is what makes this therapy so effective.
Some of the benefits of Facial Reflexology are:
- Aims to relieve the effects of stress…
- Aims to improve circulation to the face and head area, thereby speeding up the exchange of oxygen, nutrients, carbon dioxide and waste products.
- Improves lymphatic drainage aiding the removal of waste products and toxins
- Relieves tension in the muscle tissue
- Relieves mental strain and improves concentration
- Helps relieve sinus congestion
- Has a direct rejuvenating effect on the skin and leaves the face glowing and radiant
- Can bring about a general feeling of calmness and relaxation.
Facial Reflexology is not a beauty treatment, however, it does by coincidence appear to have a rejuvenating and uplifting effect on the face; it is considered as a natural alternative to botox as it relaxes the facial muscles. It also stimulates the blood flow and encourages good lymphatic drainage, therefore helping to give you a naturally glowing complexion and quite literally ‘lifting’ the face to make your face feel and look smoother and more toned. Treatments also stimulate collagen and elastin from the inside which gives the affect of tighter, plumper skin.
I use a combination of methods for my treatments as I have found this makes for a unique treatment that can be tailored to you as an individual. I have been trained by Ziggie Bergman, founder of ‘The Bergman Method‘ Facial Reflexology which she developed over twenty years and based her methods on William Fitzgerald’s theory of “Zone Therapy”, Native American techniques and body mapping but I have also researched and practised the Dien Cham method which originates from Vietnam and uses healing principles based on the I Ching and Buddhist teachings. The feedback I have had using this combination of techniques has been amazing.
What to expect from your Facial Reflexology Session
Facial reflexology is best experienced lying down for your comfort. I will secure your hair out of the way and lightly cleanse your face before applying a few drops of facial oil using essential oils over your face. The treatment will start with some relaxing massage followed by a sequence of working the whole body through a series of reflex points on the face. Deep tissue massage is combined with reflex manipulation to relieve tension, improve well being and promote deep relaxation. I use a combination of my fingertips, knuckles, tools and crystals to provide the best possible treatment.
Facial reflexology is a safe and gentle holistic treatment and is suitable for all ages and physical conditions. It can be a stand-alone therapy or used in combination with Indian Head Massage or foot reflexology.
