For years we have known the power of foot reflexology and the benefits it can have on the body. However, now therapists are exploring facial reflexology and how this too can help you not only relax but also look younger!
Here, I find out more about this unique treatment with Peace & Harmony owner, Iwona Kaminska.
What is reflexology?
Traditionally, the ancient healing practise of reflexology sees pressure applied to reflex points in the feet that correspond with the body’s organs and glands, and it has been credited for fighting off signs of depression, improving blood circulation and reducing stress. But now, our attention is being turned towards facial reflexology, the new it-treatment all the wellness warriors are raving about.
What does it involve?
During the non-invasive therapy, Iwona applies light, upwards stroking movements towards the hairline. Pressure is then applied to various points of the face that stimulate other areas of the body. The side of the nose, for instance, encourages healing and health in the lungs, whilst the ears reflex points promote wellbeing in the kidneys.
What are the benefits?
While there hasn’t been much scientific research into facial reflexology, it has been known to improve sleep quality, promote healing and remove toxins from the body. What’s more, facial reflexology boasts a wealth of beauty benefits. The motion of the movement helps to work the facial muscles and release muscular tension, resulting in a younger, radiant glow and firmer, plumper skin.
Reflexology and energy
Iwona likes to incorporate her energy healing practices into the treatment by retuning the vibrations of the body, to balance chakras and remove negativity.
