is facial reflexology?
reflexology is a holistic therapy that combines the
wisdom of ancient medical and healing traditions with
a modern understanding of neuro-anatomy to assess and
treat the underlying causes of health imbalances that
can manifest as physical, mental and/or emotional symptoms.
How does it work?
Your face is an external
projection of the state of your health. Just as foot
reflexology works on the basis that the whole body is
mirrored in the feet, facial reflexology uses detailed
charts that show the correspondences of specific points
and zones on the face to different parts of the body.
The precise stimulation of these points and zones sends
impulses through the body's central nervous system and
meridians (energy channels) to the major organs and
physical body. This results in increased blood circulation,
lymphatic drainage and hormonal balance.
An important part of the treatment
is to identify and treat the blockages and irregularities
within the body systems that often lie at the root of
any physical discomfort or health problem. These are
felt as deposits of varying degrees within the tissue.
Facial reflexology is believed to encourage the body
to respond more rapidly than other forms of reflexology
because it works in such close proximity to the brain
and central nervous system.
In common with other complementary health therapies,
facial reflexology can induce a deep state of relaxation,
relieving stress and fatigue, and triggering the body's
natural self-healing abilities.
are its origins?
The type of facial reflexology
presented here has been developed over the last 26 years
by Lone Sorensen Lopez, a complementary health therapist
of Danish/ Argentinian parentage.
Lone started her training as a reflexologist in Denmark
in 1978 and went on to train in acupuncture and laser
therapy. Her interest in facial reflexology grew out
of her success in using facial acupressure points with
children with hyperactivity and learning difficulties.
Her unique methodology combines techniques drawn from
Traditional Chinese Medicine, South American facial
zone therapy, Vietnamese facial reflexology and neuro-anatomy,
the result of extensive research and trials carried
out in several countries and in conjunction with other
specialists, including medical doctors.
She has received three honorary awards for her pioneering
work, which has been used to treat patients with neurological
conditions, including children and adults with brain
She currently trains therapists all over the world while
continuing to develop the therapy.
