Facial reflexology works on points on the face which relate to areas and systems of the body to release tension and energy to allow the body to return to its natural balance and to promote healing. It differs from foot reflexology by covering several different body maps, including the Chinese Meridians, South American Indian face massage and the Vietnamese face map.
Facial reflexology was developed over a number of years by Lone Sorensen, a Danish reflexologist and acupuncturist. It is particularly effective as the points on the face are directly related to the central nervous system so positive results come quickly.
A typical treatment lasts for either 30 or 60 minutes with the client lying on a massage table fully clothed, while the face and scalp are worked on. It is a very relaxing and gentle treatment with clients often falling asleep then awakening with renewed energy.
