Facial Reflexology for self-care and better health workshop

Did you know that your facial muscles store tension and emotions? Problems occur when we do not release these tensions regularly. Whether it is a matter of aches and pains, stress or even sleeping problems, you can use these facial self-reflexology techniques to tackle some of the most frequent health issues.
Dien Chan Facial Reflexology is a therapeutic treatment in which stimulation of zones (points) on the face are utilized to alleviate health conditions in other parts of the body. The main goal of this therapy is to prevent health problems before they occur and to relieve troubles before they become chronic.
By calming the nervous system and applying gentle pressure to points on the face, we can address a variety of health concerns. We use gentle, non-invasive tools or our fingertips to stimulate points and zones of the face. Facial massage improves overall health conditions, smoothens and brightens the skin, and enhances blood and lymph circulation of the facial skin to boost the immune system and slow the aging process. You can incorporate it into your daily routine, to achieve better sleep and a more relaxed, positive mood and mind frame. We will discuss reflex points, TCM, lymphatic drainage and scalp massage as well.
This is a (hands on) workshop style session, where we will have time to learn and practice the techniques on ourselves. Participants will receive a detailed handout and will be able to ask personal questions. Please bring a hand mirror if you can.
