What is Facial AcuZone Reflexology?

Facial AcuZone Reflexology (FAZR) is a new form of reflexology that combines Chinese acupressure points, Indian marma points, muscular massage and lymphatic drainage; all targeted at the head and neck.

What are the benefits?

FAZR is very relaxing and stress relieving. Since stress is related to so many health challenges, any service that reduces stress can be beneficial in the healing of body and mind. FAZR also offers many other benefits, which may include:

  • Increased circulation and oxygenation of skin, and tissues of the head and brain
  • Assists with lymphatic drainage (sinus issues, for example)
  • Eases muscular tensions ( jaw tightness, for example)
  • Softens lines
  • Reduces puffiness
  • Improves skin and muscle tone
  • Improves mood
  • May help to prevent headaches/migraines

Contraindictions

  • Facial conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, rash or poison ivy
  • Existing headache/migraine
  • Recent facial or neck surgery (allow 6 weeks)
  • Open cuts, lesions and cold sores
  • Burns, including sunburn
  • Pituitary tumours
  • Fever
  • Pregnancy
  • Unregulated high blood pressure
  • Lymphedema

What should I expect from a session?

Upon arrival, you will be asked to fill out a health form and then have an opportunity to share information and ask questions. I will leave the room while you change into a robe; this allows me to work on your neck area without transferring any oils to your clothing. You will also be asked to remove any jewellery from your ears, neck, nose, etc, as well as glasses, contact lenses and hearing aids.

You will rest comfortably on a facial bed while I remove your makeup and quickly cleanse your face. Oil will be applied to the face and neck and the FAZR treatment will be performed using finger pressure only (no needles); emphasis will be placed on particular areas of the head and neck, based on your health form and discussion. You will simply close your eyes, rest, and possibly fall asleep.

When the session is complete, we will discuss any sensitivities or results. You may remove the oil from your face, if desired, but it is not necessary, and the oil is actually beneficial to the skin.

Treatment length is 45-60 minutes –  $55

A mini-session may be added to a holistic facial. Pricing varies.
Testimonials

“Facial AcuZone Reflexology is great; it helps with my severe headaches. Since going for FAZR treatments my headaches have almost disappeared. If I do get one, it’s more manageable and I am still able to get through my day without suffering. Also, FAZR has helped with my sinuses; they are less congested. I highly recommend Facial AcuZone Reflexology.”  ~ Tammy, Millbrook
