FACIAL REFLEXOLOGY

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:

MALE INTIMATE LASER HAIR REMOVAL

Julia at YOU Massage & Therapy Centre, Southampton, is able to offer Men’s Intimate Laser Hair Removal from the discreet space of our Bedford Place Studio
