Dien Chan Zone Facial Reflexology
The form of Facial Reflexology I choose to work with is called Dien Chan Zone ® and is an adaptation of a treatment traced back to Vietnam. It has been a study of and practice for over 20 years by the International Academy of Italian Facial Reflexology (A.I.R.F.I) who have taken it on with the greatest respect for its roots and all that it can offer to us.
I was so drawn to learn this wonderful technique that I flew to Ireland to undertake the training. It is unlike anything I have learnt before and totally resonates with how I wish to work with the face and the person as a whole.
Facial Reflexology works in a similar way to foot reflexology, although working within such close proximity to the brain, the results can occur a lot quicker. Its aim is to restore the flow of energy in the body simply by working on zones of the face with a metal wand-like tool, in a very slow, relaxing and meditative way. It will almost feel like your face is being coloured in as I work to pinpoint any tender areas that could indicate an energy block and work to disperse these. Its aim is to free up the energetic pathways and re-energise you physically, emotionally and mentally. Some areas will be less active and need to be stimulated whilst others will require more relaxation if they are working excessively.
It can aid in so many different ways on the physical and emotional levels. It works with all of the bodies systems and just a few of the many different things it can help include insomnia, hayfever, headaches/migraines, fertility issues both male & female, muscular pain (back, neck, shoulder, etc), anxiety, women's reproductive health and digestive issues.
When you come in at the start of each treatment we will sit down and have a chat and find out how you are feeling in both body and mind and how those feelings are presenting themselves in your body. We then agree on what the priority is to work on for that day and I invite you to lay down on the massage couch and drift off into another world for 30 minutes as I carry out this wonderful treatment.
What sets this treatment apart is that you are given the tools to take this away with you, so you can carry on the work I have started, to assist in your own self-care. All you really need are your hands although you can use the rounded end of a pen or something along those lines.
Unlike foot reflexology where you really need the therapist to be present as contorting yourself to press points on your feet is never a great option, working on your face can be done very easily, fairly anonymously, at a time that suits you and doesn't require much effort.
As you can see in the above photo, I use this on myself too and it helped a great deal on a flight home after my training where I worked on areas to help with anxiety! It really is a fabulous treatment to take control of your own health.
Feet & Facial Reflexology
Love having your foot reflexology but also fancy some facial reflexology too? Now you can have a treatment combining the two. In this wonderfully relaxing treatment, I start with a 30-minute facial reflexology treatment, and then while you lay gently dozing, I move down to your feet for an extra 30 or even more mind-blowing 60 minutes working this area. Totally Blissful.....
Facial Reflexology with Arm, Neck & Shoulder Massage
I start this treatment with some acupressure points on the head and face before a scalp massage to begin the 'letting go' of any tension and then move on to an arm, neck and shoulder massage to deeply relax and begin to open up the energetic pathways ensuring that by the time I reach your face, you will be drifting peacefully away..
You can also add 30 minutes of foot reflexology to this treatment for 90 minutes of absolute bliss...
A very relaxing and therapeutic treatment. Contrary to what you may have heard, the candle does not suck the wax out of the ear, but it is gently stimulated so it is eliminated naturally after the treatment. The candles are made from a hollow tube that is impregnated with herbs and therapeutic oils. The wonderful healing vapours of the candle gently enter the ear as well as you inhaling the vapours which allow for deep relaxation on a physical and mental level, helping to clear the mind.
A wonderful treatment for people suffering from colds, sinus congestion, tinnitus, headaches/migraines, loss of hearing through excess wax to name but a few.
Not suitable if you have an ear infection, perforated eardrum, during pregnancy, have grommets or ear implants fitted, recent facial or teeth surgery, or if you are allergic to any of the candle ingredients.
