Reflexology is based on the principle that reflex points on the feet, hands, face and ears correspond with different organs and body systems. By applying massage techniques to specific reflex points, the reflexology treatment helps to restore balance to the body naturally, and improves general well-being.
Facial reflexology is a very gentle and relaxing treatment and it can be combined with foot reflexology.
It is used to treat common conditions and relieve pain. The face’s close proximity to the brain and cranial nerves especially make Facial Reflexology a very powerful treatment.
What to expect
Donna will start with a full consultation, asking various questions about your health and lifestyle, to ensure reflexology is right for you.
For the treatment itself you will remain fully clothed, simply removing your shoes and socks. You’ll be invited to relax on a reclining chair or treatment couch, or to put your feet up on a footstool. The therapist will gently cleanse your feet before applying a fine powder, cream of oil, to help provide a free-flowing treatment, and then start gently massaging and stretching your feet and ankles.
How can Facial Reflexology Help You?
During a Facial Reflexology session, neuro-vascular points, reflex zones, and certain neurological points are gently stimulated by hand, using only the finger-tips. This gentle stimulation is believed to send impulses through the central nervous system and the meridians to the physical body and the major organs. In addition it may assist blood circulation and lymphatic drainage, and it may also assist hormonal balance.
Facial Reflexology is a gentle non-invasive therapy. During your treatment you remain fully clothed and relax on a treatment couch.
