This Face Reflexology Chart is so easy to follow and learn, you will see why this is one of the most relaxing things to do and anyone can do it!
Even as do-it-yourself massage it's great
There are 15 points on the face that represent areas and systems within your body.
By stimulating these points you're increasing circulation and balance plus + also relaxing the person receiving reflexology!
Relaxation is important.
It allows people to stop and take time out from the stresses and obligations of life, relaxing is the same as hitting a reset button!
It often can make us more efficient and happy. Helping someone relax is helping them stay healthy.
Face Reflexology Technique
This is very similar to the Hand Reflexology Technique, a gentler version (this is described again on the face reflexology chart key below)
1a. using one finger or thumb apply firm pressure on a face reflex point.
1b. without lifting the thumb or finger slowly rotate the finger/ thumb so pressure is being applied in a circular motion.
1c. do this on the same spot for fifteen to thirty seconds clockwise, and then fifteen to thirty seconds anti-clockwise.
How to do Reflexology on the Face
Ensure the person receiving face reflexology is sitting comfortably, their shoulders and head must be supported.
Generally the best place to position yourself when doing face reflexology is behind the person receiving it e.g. if they are in a chair you are standing behind them.
If they are lying down (eg in bed sick) stand next to their head.
We recommend never standing in front of a person because they will be unable to relax with your body physically looming over them.
1a. stimulate each face reflex one at a time, unless where there are two points on the face for the same organ/ area.
1b. use the face reflexology chart below for direction, begin at point number 1, and finish at point 15.
If you want to work a specific area of your body (eg chest area to help with a cough), use the key underneath the diagram to determine which ones to do, however- we call this "doing the helper areas" and you can only do them after doing the whole face first.
2a. using both hands very gently tap (using tips of fingers) underneath the eyes (moving form nose to ears).
2b. still using both hands gently rub the jawline from top of ears to chin.
2c. use index fingers to rub chin for fifteen seconds.
2d. using tips of fingers of both hands move up from chin, past the edges of the mouth and gently but firmly rub the cheeks in a circular motion for about thirty seconds.
2e. still using tips of fingers/ thumb move upwards, over the nose onto forehead where eyebrows meet, rub along both eyebrows moving in an outward direction
2f. once fingers at outside end of eyebrows spread fingers evenly pull upwards over forehead all the way to hairline
2g. gently rub the hairline, scalp and all over the head as much as you like
Water is important because an increase in blood circulation means the body will get rid of waste quicker,
Your reflexology treatment will be more successful if you follow these last two steps.
3a. get the person receiving face reflexology a big glass of water
3b. tell them to take it easy for the rest of the day and keep up the water
If the person you are giving reflexology to is particularly sensitive to an area you touch, write it down (use the face reflexology chart to be sure of the area)
so next time you do reflexology to them you can check if that same area is still sensitive.
You may consider going back over that area after the whole treatment has been completed to give it an extra booster!
Reflexology does 3 amazing things!
1. it is relaxing
2. slightly increases blood circulation
3. promotes balance within the body.
