What a wonderful new kind of reflexology to add to my portfolio! Completing the course in January 2016, I learnt the Bergman method of facial reflexology and love sharing this new skill with clients old and new.
You may have heard of foot or hand Reflexology. Facial Reflexology works on the same principles, but the treatment takes place on your face and head. This non-invasive treatment is based on the theory that areas on your face are connected to areas of your body, and stimulating them improves underlying energy imbalances which promotes wellbeing. The proximity of the face to the brain is key to the effectiveness of this original therapy.
Facial Reflexology is not a beauty treatment. However, it does have rather lovely beautifying side effects, quite literally ‘lifting' the face to make your face feel and look smoother and more toned. It also encourages lymphatic drainage, stimulates the facial nerves, increases blood flow and muscle tone, helps to build up new skin tissue and improves skin tone.
Facial Reflexology aims to help reduce the symptoms and effects of many common ailments including stress, IBS, back pain, arthritis, depression, MS, menstrual and hormonal ailments and sleep disorders.
