Similar to the feet, our face contains reflex points, 500 to be exact.
The face provides a beautiful and precise tool to read what is going on within the body. The face's proximity to the brain and cranial nerves make Facial Reflexology exceptionally powerful in impacting the body systems. Facial Reflexology has a deeply rejuvenating effect on the skin and leaves the face glowing, radiant, leaving you with a feeling of calmness and deep relaxation.
Facial Reflexology aims to :
Induce deep relaxation and bring about a general feeling of calmness. Many clients have stated that facial reflexology takes them into an even deeper zone of relaxation than foot reflexology
Improve circulation to the face and head area, thereby speeding up the exchange of oxygen, nutrients and carbon dioxide,
Improve lymphatic drainage aiding the removal of waste products and toxins
Relieve tension in the muscle tissue of the face
Relieve mental strain and improve concentration, leaving he face glowing and radiant
Help relieve sinusitis/congestion and headaches
Rejuvenate and nourish the skin on the face, helping common skin concerns.
In addition, over a series of regular sessions, there may be a reduction in lines and wrinkles, helping you to feel and look good.
I like to use a facial oil for this treatment, but it is just as effective without. If you would like an oil used, we can choose a Neal's Yard Remedies Facial Oil.
Orange Flower for dry skin
Rose for balancing/normal skin
Frankincense for mature skin
After a facial reflexology treatment it is advisable to avoid makeup for about an hour to let the skin breathe
Similar to foot reflexology, after your treatment it is recommended to:
Drink plenty of water within the next 24 hours to aid the detoxification process.
Rest as much as possible to help the body heal itself
Avoid stimulants such as caffeine and alcohol and avoid eating a heavy meal for about one hour after treatment
You may experience healing reactions such as feeling cold, thirsty, mild headache, feeling emotional, feeling tired, runny rose, needing to urinate more often. These are all normal and should resolve within 48 hours.
