Facial Reflexology is a wonderful energy rebalancing therapy that engages with the natural healing processes within the body. Your clients will also experience profound states of relaxation from this gentle and soothing treatment. Careful palpation and stimulation of the plentiful supply of nerves and blood vessels within the facial muscles and soft tissue not only re-energises and increases circulation but also has the added bonus of leaving the face looking smoother, more toned and radiant.
Facial Reflexology originated from a Vietnamese system of Facial acupressure developed in the 1980’s by doctors in Vietnam to replace more invasive facial acupunture. Following this, this style of Facial Reflexology known as Dien ‘Cham’ was first introduced to France by Nhuan Le Quang. In the same way as Foot Reflexology, areas on the face correspond to specific areas of the body, it is a gentle method of stimulation of 57 Facial acupressure points and associated reflexology zones.
During the non-invasive therapy, you apply light, upwards stroking movements towards the hairline. You then apply pressure to various points of the face that stimulate other areas of the body. The side of the nose, for instance, encourages healing and health in the lungs, whilst the ears reflex points promote wellbeing in the kidneys.
Facial reflexology is the new wellness treatment everyone is raving about for the best skin ever. It is becoming ever more popular with clients. Furthermore, Facial Reflexology is super versatile as you can offer it anywhere. This is due to the fact that your clients remain fully clothed throughout the treatment, which you can carry out using a couch or a chair.
During the course we will cover:
- History of Vietnamese techniques
- Concept and Micro-system theory – the face is a micro-map of the body – by working on a particular point of the micro-map on the face, you can affect the corresponding part of the body. In the same way as hand or foot reflexology
- Introduction to reflex zones and points on the face – the body, internal organs, the spine, the joints
