Reflexology is a very gentle non-invasive therapy whereby pressure is applied to reflex points on the hands, face, feet and ears to bring about a response in the body. These reflex points correspond to all areas of your body so Reflexology can help to balance all Body Systems.
It improves Nerve Supply and Circulation to relieve pain and congestion and works on the Lymphatic system to increase your resistance to infections. It has also been shown to improve the quality of sleep, detoxify the body and increase vitality. It helps to balance All Body Systems.
Facial Reflexology is a form of reflexology where the zones and points of the face are specifically stimulated to help treat imbalances within the body. It uses a combination of several healing systems, including acupuncture points, Chinese energy meridians, Vietnamese and South American facial maps and modern anatomy of the nervous system and brain.
Its effectiveness lies in its ability to identify the cause of the health imbalance in the meridian involved and then stimulate the body’s own healing properties.
It is a unique treatment system devised by Danish reflexologist, Lone Sorensen who spent 30 years developing a combination of various facial treatments, receiving many awards and accolades for her work.
Facial Reflexology works on a very deep level within the body, is quite powerful and extremely relaxing. As well as maintaining great health, it is also very rejuvenating for the whole face. Organic Rosehip oil is used, which has very high antioxidant properties.

What happens in a reflexology session?
At your first consultation, a Health Questionnaire is completed to assess your health concerns and how best to work with you to help you return to great health and vitality.
Only footwear needs to be removed while you sit back and relax in a quiet and gentle environment while a footbath is given with Aromatherapy oils.
Your Reflexology session will then be conducted on a massage table while you close your eyes, lie back and commence your journey into total bliss. All oils and creams used are pure and natural.
Facial reflexes are stimulated by applying pressure to various points followed by gentle massage over reflex zones on the face. All areas of the face are thoroughly but gently worked.
This is followed by a shorter session working reflexes on the feet. If preferred, the face or feet can be worked alone, although I do specialise in working with the face.
A facial reflexology chart will be prepared for you to enable you to continue the work at home and will be given to you at your next visit.
Reflex points on the hands will be demonstrated to you so as you can work on them if you so wish.
A program will then be tailored to meet your individual needs.
How long is a Reflexology treatment?
Generally treatments are one hour although the first consultation will be about an hour and a half. Footbaths are optional at subsequent sessions and will add another 15 minutes to a consultation.
How many sessions will I need to attend?
This will depend on your health concerns. If a condition has been there for a long time, results will be achieved, but may take more time than if a condition is of more recent onset.
Initially, weekly sessions are recommended for a few weeks and then assessed.
As your condition improves, fewer treatments are required.
Reflexology is a very holistic therapy and works on an emotional level as well as a physical one.
Japanese Cosmo Facelifting
Japanese Cosmo Facelifting is a technique performed on the face to lift the facial tissues so that the face looks and feels younger. It is a totally natural procedure in which acupuncture points and zones of the face are stimulated to tone the muscles, increase lymphatic drainage and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
As we age, the collagen production in the skin begins to slow down. As a result, the skin loses its elasticity and fine lines and wrinkles start to appear. There are many anti-aging products on the market but many of them are very invasive or toxic to the body. Japanese Cosmo Facelifting is totally natural and works to diminish the effects of ageing. As well as treating the appearance of the skin, it deeply works the meridians, facial nerves, related zones of the body and the central nervous system. As a result, the whole body feels totally relaxed both physically and emotionally and underlying health issues can be addressed.
Treatments are an hour in duration and a course of treatments is recommended.
