In February 2017 I trained in Facial Reflexology in London with Ziggie Bergman (the UKs number one Facial Reflexologist!). I was so excited from the outset about learning to work on a completely different area of the body. By working on the face my clients face are able to feel the benefits quickly as the face is located so near to the brain.
Facial reflexology leaves clients with a glowing complexion this is because it helps to reduce the lines on your face. Who doesn't want their skin to glow after the first treatment? Never before have so many clients fallen asleep so quickly during a treatment! The quickest client to fall asleep took 9 minutes which is such a compliment. I use Neal's Yard Rose Facial Oil and as it is at a constant temperature on your face you start to totally relax as I work all the reflexes on your face.
In June 2017 I took part in the Advanced Facial Reflexology course with Ziggie Bergman in London. I am so excited to be able to add additional reflexes to my existing routine!
I am so thrilled to be taking part in a one day Acupressure Facial Therapy course in London on 28th February 2019! This course will not only focus on acupressure point work on the face but also incorporates releasing the muscular and facial structures. The skin, muscles and fascia of the face have a unique structure to allow us to express ourselves intellectually and emotional. We therefore hold a huge amount of tension and stress in our facial structure. I will learn a whole new treatment on the face, neck and shoulders. That will release tension allow emotional processing deeply relax the nervous system and promote rejuvenation of the facial structure.
This treatment works at both ends of the spectrum from deeply supporting stress and relaxing the nervous system to also having the feel of an indulgent rejuvenating treat. l will learn more about the structure of the face how to use massage and acupressure to release emotions and stress. This treatment is also very beneficial for deeply relaxing the CNS. Due to its non invasive nature and effects on the nervous system its very supportive with clients with conditions such as fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue.
What is exciting is that the skills I will learn from this course will extend my facial reflexology treatment into a one hour appointment! So if you are not a 'foot' person you will be able to opt for a one hour facial reflexology treatment (to include the head, neck and shoulders) or a 30 mins Indian Head Massage followed by 30 mins Facial Reflexology or 30 mins Acupressure Facial Therapy treatment.
What can you expect when you come for facial reflexology? After a brief consultation, the treatment starts with a simple cleansing and preparation of the face (I don't go near the eyes so don't worry about any eye make up you may be wearing). I apply the gorgeous Rose Facial Oil from Neil's Yard (an organic product) before commencing the Facial Reflexology sequence. The oil turns the experience into a treat and its antioxidant qualities help to seal the skin against the ravages of our UK weather.
I gently stimulate a number of reflexes on your face that correspond to different body systems and organs. The sensation is deeply relaxing, and it is not unusual to fall asleep!
Facial Reflexology is very effective for alleviating winter ailments such as blocked sinuses, dry skin, headaches, lack of energy, dull complexion, and depression; as this therapy helps the body to work at its optimum level, boosting the immune system. It can also help to fight off winter colds and flu. For one hour you get to just lie back and relax and it is suitable for both men and women!
I start the treatment with a combined Indian Head Massage and Facial Reflexology treatment lasting 30 mins then add a 30 mins Foot Reflexology treatment (for an amazing hour of relaxation!)
Please note that I am not able to offer this treatment if you have a cold sore as it is very contagious.
What can you do to keep your skin looking amazing between treatments?
* Increase eating good fats, fruit and veg
* Sleep for at least 8 hours a night
* Drink one large 2 litre bottle of water a day
* Cleanse your skin twice a day and exfoliate at least once a week
Please refer below to some amazing feedback from my clients:
"Just had the most amazing facial reflexology followed by an incredible foot reflexology. Thank you so much Wendy it was great."
"Tonight I had the ultimate relaxation.... a facial and Reflexology treatment. From the moment I walk into Wendy's treatment room, calm descends upon my world and I instantly feel relaxed. The warmth of the room coupled with the relaxing music and blankets on hand all adds to a wonderful experience. I normally have an hour of Reflexology which is total bliss but this time I decided to try the combination of 30 minutes facial and 30 minutes Reflexology.
Wendy did the facial first. The smell of the rose oil as I sat back in the chair immediately relaxed me.
Just the right amount of pressure was applied and I particularly felt some kind of relief when she worked around the bridge of my nose and sinus area. By the end of the 30 minutes my skin felt soft and rejuvenated and I was super relaxed. Wendy then moved onto my feet, silently without a word, she knows this hour is golden time to us mums!
The Reflexology has always worked wonders for me. I had told Wendy that the previous month I had suffered a bout of sciatica and she focused on this area of my foot. I find it hugely interesting talking to Wendy about what parts of the feet correspond to the rest of the body and she is so interesting to listen to. This lady has a passion for what she does and it shows!
Thank you Wendy..... I will be in touch to book my next appointment."
