Reflexology is a protocol of manual techniques, such as thumb and finger-walking, hook and backup and rotating-on-a-point, applied to specific reflex areas predominantly on the feet and hands. These techniques stimulate the complex neural pathways linking body systems, supporting the body’s efforts to function optimally.
The effectiveness of reflexology is recognized worldwide by various national health institutions and the public at large as a distinct complementary practice within the holistic health field.

Facial AcuZone Reflexology is a new form of reflexology that includes acupressure on Chinese meridian points, Indian Marma points, muscle massage, lymph drainage all targeted on the head and neck and mapped using longitudinal zones and transverse landmark lines. Reduces stress and tension, is deeply relaxing, assists lymph drainage, stimulates nerve endings, calms the mind, improves tone of facial muscles and skin, and enhances circulation and oxygenation to tissues and brain. May be helpful for headaches, migraines, stress, and sinus issues. It works with the meridians accessed through the head and the zones. Working Chinese meridian points (there are 12 energy pathways in the body) in the head can help open up blockages along the meridian and working the zones helps open up blockages in each zone. The body has 10 zones. 10 fingers, 10 toes and the body is equally divided up into sections called zones. In the reflexology zone theory, energy moves up and down the zones.
There are reflex maps on the face that correspond to all the parts of the body. Reflexology on the face involves rubbing and circles instead of finger walking like on the feet or hands. It can be very effective. Trigger thumbs were healed by working the face reflexes for the hands. It is incredibly relaxing and induces a sense of well being, so it is especially great for anxiety and depression. The ears can also be rubbed slowly which induces this same deep relaxation and sense of well being. Clients LOVE it! An additional 15-30 minutes can be AMAZING added to your massage or foot reflexology session.

Reflexology may be included as part of your session or as a half hour or full hour session. A footbath and footscrub may be used to start the relaxation process. You may choose to have just foot reflexology or include hands and ears. Relaxation techniques are used at the beginning to loosen the feet or hands and then a firm touch is used, so you will not find it ticklish.
