What is Facial Reflexology?
Facial Reflexology (Sorensensistem) is a holistic facial massage treatment that was developed by Lone Sorensen, a Danish Reflexologist, over 30 years ago. It is a treatment that has its roots in both modern and ancient techniques and traditions.
It works on a similar principle as foot reflexology and aims to release energy to the body, restore balance and thus help prevent disease. It has been used to treat a wide range of conditions from migraines and anxiety to hormonal imbalances and joint problems though many people just enjoy it because it is very relaxing and helps eliminate stored up tension and stress.
Through massaging various reflex points and areas on the face it is possible to send impulses through the central nervous system to certain organs and systems of the body, helping to increase blood circulation, nerve supply to the tissues and regulate the chemical process.
On an aesthetic level, because the massage stimulates the facial nerves, muscles and circulation, it has a regenerative effect upon the skin.
It helps by:
– activating the lymphatic system which helps to get rid of toxins
– encouraging the build up of new skin tissue.
– alleviating the tension held deep within the facial muscles
– improving the elasticity and tone of the skin leaving a healthy glow.
