Facial Reflexology is a deeply relaxing reflexology treatment, sharing the same principles as foot reflexology. The reflex points on the face help to improve blood circulation and nerve transmission, promotes the release of toxins and helps the body to balance and heal. Gentle pressure is applied to the reflexes on the face which when stimulated affect the relevant part of the body via the body's facia and energy pathways.
This treatment (The Bergman Method) is based on traditional "zone therapy" as well as techniques inspired by the Native American to encourage deep relaxation and optimise health and well-being.
Stress is part of our modern day lives. Dealing with deadlines, schedules and organising family life can put a strain on our body's physical, emotional and mental well-being and sustained stress can have a negative impact on the body. Stress shows up in different ways from tight muscles and tension headaches to anxiety, depression, high blood pressure, hormonal imbalances, digestive problems and insomnia.
This 30 minutes treatment focuses on the areas of the body affected by stress. Facial Reflexology helps to open the energy pathways to calm the nervous system and balance the hormones being released to deal with the stress. It also has a pain relieving effect, releasing natural endorphins in to the body.

What happens during a treatment?
After a consultation to asses your areas of concern and over-all health, you will remove your shoes and lie on the couch fully clothed. Your face will be gently cleansed to remove any impurities and I will begin the treatment with some massage techniques to help you slowly unwind and relax. I use a facial elixir, scented with white sage, rose and Ylang Ylang which has specific qualities to calm and balance the mind and body and allows the treatment flow.
