face + feet reflexology
Face and feet reflexology is a treatment where both client’s face and then feet are worked on using reflex points related to the body’s meridians. This treatment will stimulate the lymphatic system and facial muscles to lift and plump the skin but also benefit the entire body leaving you feeling deeply relaxed.
SorensensistemTM facial reflexology, otherwise called Japanese Cosmo Lift Facial, is a holistic treatment that was founded by renowned Danish Reflexologist Lone Sorensen who developed the practice alongside thirty years of research into ancient medical traditions, such as Chinese energy meridians and acupuncture points.
The treatment follows the same principles as foot reflexology – just on the face, using reflex points related to the body’s meridians in conjunction with a Japanese face sculpting technique to stimulate the lymphatic system and facial muscles to lift and plump the skin and benefit the entire body. The practitioner works with aromatic and nourishing rose hip oil as well as a cleansing clay mask and smooth crystal balls to cool and massage the skin.
This is a non-surgical, no-invasive beauty treatment that is effective in regulating the metabolism and hormonal imbalances, stimulating circulation and leaving the mind feeling calm and clear and the skin looking vibrant, younger and healthier.
hot stone reflexology
Hot stone reflexology is a treatment where hot stones are either incorporated into a reflexology treatment or are used for the whole treatment instead of thumbs. It uses large stones to warm and massage the legs and feet, and small stones to work reflex points and more specific areas. The treatment, apart from being is extremely soothing and relaxing, will improve circulation, help with detoxification of the body, reduce muscle tension as well as strengthen the immune system.
Hot stone reflexology however is contraindicated in conditions where heat is not recommended, including when there is inflammation such as with rheumatoid arthritis, or skin conditions that can be aggravated by moisture or heat, such as dermatitis.
Reflexology is extremely safe and effective in treating pregnant women. It can relieve oedema (water retention around ankles and legs), bring high blood pressure down, ease stomach reflux or indigestion as well as back or groin pain. This treatment can also help promote contractions towards the end of the term. Reflexology during pregnancy is extremely relaxing not only for mothers-to-be, but for their babies who love it as well.
Reflexology is based on the principal that the body is mapped onto the feet, hands and ears and that working specific pressure points brings about change in the corresponding organs, glands or structures of the body. It is thought to help the free flow of energy around the body by improving the circulation and stimulating the organs of elimination. This is believed to bring the body back to a state of equilibrium, thereby promoting the body’s natural healing power.
