Vietnamese face maps & points and our most current knowledge
Our face contains numerous nerves and blood vessels. It’s
close proximity to the brain insures facial stimulation as the
shortest pathway to the brain center, offering an more efficient
effect in balancing ones health concerns. The stimulation works
through the Central Nervous System to specific organs and systems
to regulate your blood, lymph, body functions and hormones.
This complementary therapy is designed to assess the underlying
cause of the ones compromised health, yet also assist with the
treatment of symptoms.
What is a treatment like?
The treatment is a gentle non-invasive therapy. One
remains completely clothed at all times.
Face Reflexology is deeply soothing. Often we don’t realize
the tension and stress that our facial muscles are holding transmitting
to our entire body. This tension is created by mundane activities:
chewing, grinding teeth, tired or straining eyes, even laughing.
Our faces are the first locations we exhibit our emotions or
suppress them. With Face Reflexology, stimulation of the points
and zones trigger release of endorphins and serotonin, so one
comes away relaxed and rejuvenated. The deep smooth massage
steadily releases the tension and balances the central nervous
system helping the body to heal itself.
A light oil is applied to the face to assist in the technique.
It is a rich handcrafted Rosehip Oil gathered from wild roses
in the protected region of Argentina’s Rainforest. Naturally
abundant in vitamin C, the oil heals and conditions the face,
leaving the skin more supple, toned and healthier.
Who can benefit?
Face Reflexology may be used to assist in the treatment for
specific conditions, to maintain ones health, or purely for
facial rejuvenation and relaxation. As a complimentary therapy,
Face Reflexology does not claim to cure but does greatly enhance
and assist in the treatment of many conditions.

child having difficulty in school. This can be due to various
• difficulty remaining in seat
• learning challenges

times feels quite desperate. The problems are unresolved and
the lack of success then causes even more stress and anxiety.

What to expect after a treatment
Many people describe it as a deeply relaxing, soothing treatment,
leaving one with the added bonus of a healthier complexion and
radiant face. One must also remember that as a treatment stimulating
the entire body, one can experience symptoms of detoxing….these
are merely temporary and signal the body is working to cleanse
and balance. Symptoms of detoxification could be headaches,
chills, profuse sweating, change in bowels or more frequent
need to urinate. It is important to rest and drink plenty of
water after the treatment to support the body in it’s
transition. If any of these symptoms occur, remember it is temporary
and signals the body is working.
