Devised by Lone Sorensen, Face Reflexology combines three ancient therapies with modern science of neurology. It is the combination of Traditional Chinese Medicine, South American Zone Therapy, Vietnamese face maps & points and our most current knowledge of neuroanatomy.
Our face contains numerous nerves and blood vessels. Its close proximity to the brain insures facial stimulation as the shortest pathway to the brain center, offering a more efficient effect in balancing one’s health concerns. The stimulation works through the Central Nervous System to specific organs and systems to regulate your blood, lymph, body functions and hormones.
This complementary therapy is designed to assess the underlying cause of one’s compromised health, yet also assist with the management of symptoms.
Face Reflexology may be used to assist in dealing with specific conditions, to maintain one’s health or purely for facial rejuvenation and relaxation. As a complementary therapy, Face Reflexology does not claim to cure but does greatly enhance and assist with many conditions:
Allergies Anxiety and Stress Arthritis conditions Bell’s Palsy Depression Digestive Problems Insomnia Infertility Migraines Stroke Rehabilitation and many more
The session is a gentle non-invasive therapy. One remains completely clothed at all times.
Face Reflexology is deeply soothing. Often we don’t realize the tension and stress that our facial muscles are holding and transmitting to our entire body. This tension is created by mundane activities: chewing, grinding teeth, tired or strained eyes, even laughing. Our face is the first location we exhibit our emotions or suppress them. With Face Reflexology, stimulation of the points and zones trigger release of endorphins and serotonin, so one comes away relaxed and rejuvenated. The deep smooth reflexology techniques steadily releases the tension and balances the central nervous system helping the body to heal itself.
A light oil is applied to the face to assist in the technique. It conditions the face, leaving the skin more supple, toned and healthier.

Many people describe it as a deeply relaxing, soothing session, leaving one with the added bonus of a healthier complexion and radiant face. One must also remember that as a session is stimulating the entire body, one can experience symptoms of detoxification… These are merely temporary and signal the body is working to cleanse and balance. Symptoms of detoxification could be headaches, chills, profuse sweating, change in bowels or more frequent need to urinate. It is suggested to rest arid drink plenty of water after your session to support the body in its transition. If any of these symptoms occur, remember it is temporary and signals the body is working.
