Facial Reflexology is a complementary therapy By gently pressing acupuncture points in the face, both your looks and your health and wellbeing will be positively influenced. It is a very calming and relaxing procedure.
Your face gains a radiant glow while underlying tensions ease.
Facial Reflexology reduces the impact of stress - something you feel and see almost immediately.
How Does It Work? While reflexology usually works through the feet, Facial Reflexology works through the face.
The face is supplied richly with nerves and blood vessels. Its closeness to the brain ensures that sensory stimuli have the shortest route to the brain's control centre of the body where health imbalances are being addressed.
A treatment session will work on the entire surface of the face (except the eyelids). The gentle pressure of the fingertips is stimulating, thereby helping along a natural improvement in the blood and energetic circulation in the body. Of course, the nerve function, the lymphatic supply and the muscle tone of the face all benefit as well.
What are the Benefits? Facial Reflexology can be purely for deep relaxation or it can assist in the treatment of many conditions, whether they are chronic, acute or minor, including: Allergies; Joint pain; Anxiety & Stress; Emotional Difficulties; Digestive Problems; Headaches; Hormonal Imbalances; Sleep Disorders; Muscular aches and Strains; Respiratory problems and many more..........
What is the Treatment Like?
The therapy is appropriate for clients of all ages including children. During your treatment you remain fully clothed and relax on a treatment couch. The facial reflexologist only uses her fingers and a special gentle oil (rosehip) or cream.
An important part of your initial treatment is the taking of a detailed case history. Your personal treatment plan for subsequent sessions will be based on this information. Therefore, you should allow up to 90 minutes for your first session. Subsequent sessions will take around 1 hour.
Where Does the Technique Come From? Facial Reflexology Sorensensistem TM was developed by Lone Sorensen about 30 years ago. Its roots go back centuries, drawing from many traditions and practices. It combines Chinese energy meridians and acupuncture points with Vietnamese and South American tribal body maps and the science of neuro - anatomy. It is considered to be one the world's most advanced 21st Century therapeutic facial treatments, accredited to the UK Association of Reflexologists.
