Facial reflexology comes to The Terrace

Irene Cox of The Terrace, Taunton, is now excited to offer facial reflexology! Taken from an article by Ziggie Bergman, creator of Bergman method facial reflexology, this piece looks in more depth at the therapy.


Facial Reflexology is a bit of a fashion beauty secret: a natural way to look beautifully relaxed, radiant and glowing while your entire body has been balanced by Reflexology. The exciting thing about having Reflexology on your face is that not only does it offer all the amazing and well-documented benefits of foot reflexology, but it also gives you a rejuvenating transformation through lifting and sculpting your facial muscles and enhancing your complexion. You will notice a brighter glow even after the very first treatment!


What can you expect when you come for facial reflexology?

From the moment you walk in, you will be entering relaxing healing space. After a brief consultation, the treatment starts with a simple cleansing and preparation of the face. The Facial Reflexologist will apply Neal’s Yard organic rose, frankincense or orange facial oils before beginning the Facial Reflexology sequence. The oils’ help make the entire experience a real treat and their antioxidant qualities help to seal the skin against the ravages of climatic changes and environmental factors, such as central heating.


The Facial Reflexologist gently stimulates a series of points on your face that correspond to different body systems and organs. The sensation is deeply relaxing, and it is not unusual to fall asleep. The Reflexology sequence is combined with a unique face massage that incorporates the most effective natural facelifting techniques to invigorate every muscle, lift the face and smooth out wrinkles. Special attention is paid to the eyes, cheeks and jawline.


During the treatment, the therapist will often use a variety of non-invasive tools, as well as her fingers, to stimulate the skin and nerve endings. Clients frequently regard this as a favorite part of the treatment. The treatment concludes with a short series of closing movements to wake you gently and prepare you to go back out into the world.


Facial Reflexology combines all of the therapeutic benefits of a holistic therapy with a touch of beautifying luxury! Clients often say that they feel an inner calm and a real sense of wellbeing at the end of a treatment, as well as a more youthful, glowing complexion. Facial Reflexology achieves this by improving blood and lymph flow, releasing muscle tension and stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. Over time, the face can dry out and our facial muscles can contract, forming permanent wrinkles – a bit like an autumn leaf. The rejuvenating effect of Facial Reflexology is like putting a crisp autumn leaf in olive oil; in moments, the leaf appears plump and supple again.


Facial Reflexology is very effective for alleviating various ailments such as blocked sinuses, dry skin, headaches, lack of energy, dull complexion, and depression; as this therapy helps the body to work at its optimum level, boosting the immune system. It can also help to fight off winter colds and flu.
