Face Reflexology

The Bergman method of facial reflexology is built on the same foundations as modern reflexology. Gentle pressure is applied to the different reflex zones and reflexology points on the face which correspond to different organs, systems and glands in the body. Toxins can build up in the body during times of stress or illness. Facial Reflexology aims to relax and help remove stress by assisting the body to heal and rebalance itself. It can provide a beautiful and precise tool to help detect what is happening within the body’s internal organs, central nervous system and neuro-biological system.

Facial reflexology encourages a healthy blood and lymph flow and stimulates Collagen and elastin, helping your skin to rejuvenate and minimize the appearance of ageing.

The face’s proximity to the brain is key to the effectiveness of manipulating facial reflex points which directly connect to the body’s neuro-pathways. Facial Reflexology can be a wonderful therapy to help identify reflexes out of balance and to improve health and well-being.

The unique benefit of Facial Reflexology is that not only does it aim to help improve health and wellbeing, it also gives you a healthy glow.

Treatment sessions

At the first meeting a reflexologist takes time for a consultation in which you may answer questions regarding your general health, lifestyle and medical history. This will be followed by the initial reflexology treatment.

The first treatment lasts approximately 50 minutes, plus approximately 20 minutes for the consultation. From this first session the reflexologist assesses and discusses with the client the best course of treatment. This varies with each client. Treatment time may be reduced for children and special cases.

For the session you will be seated in a comfortable reclining reflexology chair. The treatment is soothing and relaxing. After one or two treatments your body may respond in a very definite way. Most people note a sense of well-being and relaxation.

It is important to note that reflexology complements orthodox medicine.
