Most of us of heard of foot reflexology developed by the late Eunice Ingram, the theory being that all areas of the body have a corresponding reflexology point on the foot. For example the top of the big toe represents the brain. Applying pressure to this area can affect brain functioning.
The right foot corresponds to the organs on the right side of the body, and vice versa.
Facial reflexology works on the same theory that points of the face correspond to an area of the body so the theory is that by stimulating these points we are bringing balance and harmony to the whole body. So why is is such an incredible treatment if you are feeling stressed?
Firstly i have come to realise over the years that facial massage is extremely important and powerful in helping clients reach a deep state of relaxation, we often forget that the face can hold a lot of tension through clenching of the jaw, frowning or scowling. Facial reflexology can help to relieve this tension and as one of my clients once said to me "i don't want my life to be written all over my body' particularly the face! - wise words.
Secondly stimulating a facial reflexology point affects the part of the brain that stimulates a particular organ so location comes into play here. When working the reflex points on the face, there is a shorter distance to reach the associated parts of the brain, basically it works much more quickly that when working on the feet. I can usually see that by the time i have reached the 4th or 5th reflex point on the face the client is showing visible signs of being deeply relaxed, a much quicker route to achieving calm and peace.
Thirdly we use Neal's yard organic facial oil during our facial reflexology treatments, we use either frankincense, orange flower (neroli) or rose essential oils, so you will be soothed by these wonderful scents during your treatment. Frankincense can help relieve chronic stress and anxiety, reducing pain and inflammation and boosting immunity. Rose essential oil can help alleviate depression and is great for the skin and orange flower essential oil is great for reducing stress & symptoms of the menopause.
Next this treatment can be tailor made to your personal requirements, are you suffering from hay fever, migraines, stress? During the consultation we will discuss who you want to get out of the treatment and the session will be tailor made specifically for you, if you are suffering from stress or struggling to sleep we can work more on certain reflex points to help you.
And finally this treatment balances the whole body using the principles of reflexology, working the whole system to restore balance. Not only this there appears to be something quite special about facial reflexology and i know this from the reports i've had from my clients. It takes people into a very deep state of relaxation, clients have reported seeing colours, going on journeys, floating all sorts of amazing things! And all reporting that they have felt deeply relaxed afterwards
So there are the 5 reasons why facial reflexology will make you feel less stressed! If you would like to book a session with Louise please call 07966688465 or email louisabrownholistictherapies firstname.lastname@example.org
