Ayurvedic Facial Reflexology
An Ayurvedic facial reflexology experience begins with the application of various targeted facial massage techniques. Key energy points from Ayurvedic tradition known as marma points are massaged with warm tridoshic oil. Tridoshic simply means balancing whichever doshas are out of balance. (In Ayurveda, the doshas are known as vatta, pitta and kapha and are the patterns used to describe a person’s constitution in terms of physical, emotional and mental characteristics).
Finally the face is gently massaged using a bronze kasa wand. The kasa wand is believed to have the same effect as a kasa bowl used in traditional Ayervedic massage to help remove excess heat and toxins and to reinforce marma point work. The bronze kasa wand is beautifully smooth and glides delicately across the skin.
Regular Facial Reflexology treatments are recommended to experience the full rejuvenating benefits of Uplifting Facial Reflexology.
How will I feel after a treatment?
Most people experience a sense of enhanced well-being and relaxation following a treatment. On occasions, however, as the body begins to restore its natural balance some people may feel lethargic, tearful or slightly nauseous for a short period of time. Reflexologists believe this is part of the body’s natural healing response.
After a Facial Reflexology treatment, it is important that you drink plenty of water and avoid alcohol as any form of Reflexology can be very detoxifying. To get the most out of your treatment it is best to take it easy and take good care of yourself after a treatment.
