How does reflexology work
By applying gentle pressure to specific reflex points, most commonly on the feet, I aim to induce a state of deep relaxation and enhance circulation and nerve supply, which are necessary to stimulate the body's own healing mechanisms. As a holistic treatment, reflexology aims to help the body to restore balance, reduce stress and promote general health and wellbeing.
How does facial reflexology work?
Our face, like our feet or hands, has points and areas which are connected to every area of the body. By stimulating a point or area on the face, a direct response occurs in the corresponding area of the body and helps to balance the corresponding body part and stimulates the body's healing process. Each treatment helps to release endorphins, which promote a calmer mind providing the client with a deep sense of relaxation. While working in the face circulation and nerve supply improved as it does lymphatic drainage, which provides clients with a naturally glowing complexion. Treatments also stimulate collagen and elastin from the inside which gives the affect of tighter, plumper skin.
The Bergman Method
I've been trained by Ziggie Bergman, founder of 'The Bergman Method' Facial Reflexology, which is based on William Fitzgerald's theory of "Zone Therapy" and uses Native American techniques along with Asian body mapping.
The Hip and Healthy magazine described the Bergman method as 'deeply relaxing, anti-ageing treatment that eliminates the need for Botox and offers a natural alternative to dermal fillers'.
Facial Reflex Therapy Sorensensistem
I've also been trained by Lone Sorensen to use the specific techniques of Facial Reflex Therapy sorensensistem, which Lone developed over 30 years of research through her international institute.
This method also stimulates reflex points by using gentle facial massage techniques. The specific techniques used for this method have been devised and trademarked by Lone Sorensen. In addition to reflex points, the method can also include stimulation of nerve points and zones on the face and scalp. The effectiveness of Sorensensistem is found in its ability to encourage the individual’s natural healing processes to help maintain the health and balance of the whole body.
