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.

Have you heard of this absolutely beautiful style of massage therapy?
No? Shell-shocked! 🙂
Most cultures have their own unique style of massage but none quite like this divine combination therapy, Lava Shells Massage from the Philippines.
For 100s of years, the Philippino people have harvested tiger clam shells from the beach in order to provide an authentic, soothing, relaxing treatment.
Now, in the UK we may not have large stretches of white sandy beaches surrounding us, like there are in Philippines, but we have adapted this treatment to bring Lava Shell Massage to our world of health and beauty, and now, to YOU Massage, Bedford Place, Southampton by therapist William.
We’ve all read how smoking, one drink too many, days out in the sun as well as another multitude of sins which we commit on a regular basis are bad for your skin, its appearance and how quick (or not!) we age…
We know all this. But how many of us actually have a routine that involves making our skin a priority? We all have busy lives, so we may skip what we see as just another demand on our precious time. Sound familiar?
As winter approaches it’s almost like our bodies know that the cold is going to make us less mobile and alert. Our bodies become less agile, due to the cold weather, as our muscles contract and joints start to stiffen. We become more tired and can start to feel low in mood due to the decrease in natural sunlight.
Having massage during the winter months is almost more beneficial to us than it is in the summer. Massage can improve the flow and drainage of the Lymphatic system and increases the activity level of our natural ‘killer cells’ which in turn, improves the function of our immune system. We will all struggle with viruses and bugs more over the winter months so, by having a regular massage it can decrease your chances of getting ill. The lymph system is boosted and kept flowing properly to remove waste from the tissues and promote production of bug fighting cells. This can allow the body to fight off illness more effectively, keeping you well and healthy and decreasing the number of sick days you have in the long run.
Having a facial deeply cleanses the skin, gets rid of dead skin cells so that it glows, and also gives you a chance to relax with a bit of well-deserved pampering. Take the benefits even further by going organic.
Beauty Mantra: ‘If you can’t eat it, don’t put it on your face!’
At You Massage Therapy we believe natural facial products are the most beneficial to your skin. Our skin is the largest organ in the body so it’s important to look after it and using the right skin care will go a long way towards keeping your skin young and healthy. Regular facials will also help to stimulate blood circulation, speed up lymph movement and remove dead skin which will improve the look and condition of your skin.
