Facial Refllex Therapy is a holistic facial massage which has its roots in both modern and ancient techniques and traditions including Chinese meridian and acupressure points.
The theory is that by stimulating acupressure points and massaging reflex areas on the face it may be possible to send impulses through the central nervous system to organs and systems within the body.
This potentially helps to increase blood circulation, nerve supply to the tissues, activate the lymphatic system and improve muscle tone of the face. These may well help in contributing to the sense of well being and relaxation that many patients experience.
During the consultation a brief medical history is taken to ascertain the patients state of health and reasons for seeking treatment.
It is a deeply relaxing facial massage that helps calm the mind and body leaving the patient feeling more energetic and more balanced.
Acupressure points on the face are also stimulated which connect with meridians (energy systems within the body).
