The Bergman Method
Facial Reflexology is very effective in improving lymphatic drainage encouraging the elimination of toxins and can help relieve muscle tension, mental strain, headaches & migraines. Facial Reflexology aims to reduce the symptoms and effects of many common ailments including sinusitis and congestion problems, insomnia, lack of energy, IBS and other stress related issues. It can be particularly useful for people suffering with neurological conditions by working closely with the central nervous system and the muscles of the face and head.
Facial reflexology brings all the benefits of foot reflexology with added beautifying extras such as giving the complexion a younger, radiant glow as well as leaving the skin to appear tighter, smoother and plumper over a series of treatments. This treatment is not only deeply relaxing but can also help to improve a number of ailments such as stress, insomnia, blocked sinuses, dry skin, migraines and depression.
Facial Reflexology has all the benefits and principles of traditional Foot Reflexology. It is deeply relaxing with immediate effects due to the close proximity to the brain and central nervous system. Once the reflex points are activated a direct response occurs in the corresponding area of the body, this helps the body’s healing process, improving circulation and nerve supply as well as the release of toxins. Treatments also stimulate collagen and elastin which gives the effect of tighter, plumper more radiant skin.
The Bergman Method
I was trained by Ziggie Bergman, founder of 'The Bergman Method' Facial Reflexology. Developed over twenty years and based on William Fitzgerald's theory of "Zone Therapy" this method uses Native American techniques along with Asian body mapping.
What to expect?
After a short consultation I will begin b cleansing the face with beautiful Ren Cleanser and hot towels , I will then apply pre-blended organic facial oil before beginning the treatment. The oils used enhance the experience of the treatment, as they come with added benefits such as the ability to nourish and revitalise the skin. Once the treatment begins I will use gentle pressure on different reflex points on the face to rebalance and restore the body and mind while also having the added benefit of smoothing out wrinkles and rejuvenating the face.
