Facial Reflexology -The Bergman Method
Facial reflexology brings all the benefits of foot reflexology with added beautifying extras such as giving the complexion a younger, radiant glow as well as leaving the skin to appear tighter, smoother and plumper over a series of treatments. Facial Reflexology is considered as a natural alternative to botox, this holistic treatment is not only deeply relaxing but can also help to improve a number of ailments such as stress, insomnia, blocked sinuses, dry skin, migraines and depression.
Many clients have commented on how glowing their complexion looks following their first treatment!
How does it work?
The principal of Facial reflexology is the same as foot reflexology, reflexes on the face are said to be connected to areas of the body. When stimulating the reflex points on the face, a direct response occurs in the corresponding area of the body, this works to stimulate the body's healing process, improve circulation and nerve supply as well as release the body of toxins. Treatments also stimulate collagen and elastin from the inside which gives the affect of tighter, plumper skin.
The Bergman method
I was trained by Ziggie Bergman, founder of 'The Bergman Method' Facial Reflexology. Developed over twenty years and based on William Fitzgerald's theory of "Zone Therapy" this method uses Native American techniques along with Asian body mapping.
What to expect?
After a short consultation and once you are comfortable on either a reclining chair or massage table, I will begin to cleanse the face with some gentle facial wipes, I will then apply pre-blended organic frankincense or rose facial oil before beginning the treatment. The oils used enhance the experience of the treatment, as they come with added benefits such as the ability to nourish and revitalise the skin. Once the treatment begins I will use gentle pressure on different reflex points on the face, I will also use a range of massage and natural facelift techniques to smooth out wrinkles and rejuvenate the face. You should find this experience to be very relaxing and may even drop off to sleep!
I always use good quality, natural and organic pre-blended facial oils for treatments, If you are interested in trying out the oils for yourself, please check out my Neal's Yard Remedies Organic shop webpage, where you can browse through a whole host of amazing products.
