Devised by Lone Sorensen, Face Reflex-Therapy combines three ancient therapies with modern science of neurology. It is the combination of Traditional Chinese Medicine, South American Zone Therapy, Vietnamese face maps & points and our most current knowledge of neuro-anatomy.
Our face contains numerous nerves and blood vessels. Its close proximity to the brain insures facial stimulation as the shortest pathway to the brain center, offering a more efficient effect in balancing ones health concerns. The stimulation works through the Central Nervous System to specific organs and systems to regulate your blood, lymph, body functions and hormones. This complementary therapy is designed to assess the underlying cause of the ones compromised health, yet also assist with the treatment of symptoms.
What to expect during a session?
The session is a gentle noninvasive therapy. One remains completely clothed at all times.
Face Reflex-Therapy is deeply soothing. Often we don't realize the tension and stress that our facial muscles are holding and transmitting to our entire body. This tension is created by mundane activities: chewing, grinding teeth, tired or strained eyes, even laughing. Our face is the first location we exhibit our emotions or suppress them. With Face Reflexology, stimulation of the points and zones trigger release of endorphins and serotonin, so one comes away relaxed and rejuvenated. The deep smooth reflex-therapy techniques steadily release the tension and balance the central nervous system helping the body to heal itself.
Light oil is applied to the face to assist in the technique. It conditions the face, leaving the skin more supple, toned and healthier.
Reflex-Therapy is a complementary health support to promote natural healing and is not a substitute for medical care.

What to expect after a session?
Many people describe it as a deeply relaxing, soothing session, leaving one with the added bonus of a healthier complexion and radiant face. One must also remember that as a session is stimulating the entire body, one can experience symptoms of detoxification. These are merely temporary and signal the body is working to cleanse and balance. Symptoms of detoxification could be headaches, chills, profuse sweating, change in bowels or more frequent need to urinate. It is suggested to rest and drink plenty of water after your session to support the body in its transition. If any of these symptoms occur, remember it is temporary and signals the body is working.

Children and Young Adults
Facial Reflex-Therapy has been used since 1978 to help children with an assortment of diverse problems. Most common is with the child having difficulty in school. This can be due to various reasons
• difficulty remaining in seat
• learning challenges
• problems concentrating
• weak memory and recall
• peers causing emotional difficulties
• stress and anxiety
• and many more..........
The parent often feels at a loss as to how to help the child and at times feels quite desperate. The problems are unresolved and the lack of success then causes even more stress and anxiety.
Research in the U.S.A. has found that twelve percent of children born under difficult labor circumstances suffer from what is termed post-traumatic brain damage.
Often within a few sessions, positive results are obtained. A sense of balance and tranquility are restored giving the child more ability to learn through raising their self-confidence. Harmony returns to the family.
