Facial Reflexology Sorensensistem™
How does it work?
You have probably heard of foot reflexology. Facial Reflexology Sorensensistem™ works on the most visible part of our anatomy, the part you expose to the world on a daily basis.
It is a powerful complementary therapy aiming to give you the best look and feel in your face, by improving blood supply, lymphatic drainage and muscle tone in the face, giving you a healthy glow and rejuvenated look.
Being such close distance to the central nervous system of the brain, facial reflexology permits stimulus to travel the quickest route to our ‘control panel’, to stimulate the nerve function of the brain into addressing any health imbalances in the body. It uses over 500 acupressure points and several maps of zones on the face, to provide a precise treatment. It is common for my clients to go into deep relaxation or fall asleep during the treatment and awaken feeling as if they had a full body massage.
How did it come about?
Facial Reflexology Sorensensistem™ was created some 30 years by Lone Sorensen. Its origins go back a few centuries and draw on different practices and traditions around the world. Facial Reflexology combines Chinese energy meridians and acupuncture points in addition to Vietnamese and South American tribal body maps. It links to anatomical and physiological knowledge of the body. A session of Facial Reflexology Sorensensistem™ facilitates deep relaxation as a vehicle that enables natural healing processes in the body, resulting in a letting go of unwanted tension and a measurable improvement in a sense of wellbeing.
This approach is a gentle, slow and powerful technique of releasing deep tension in the muscle, moving lymph around, increasing blood supply and facilitating deep relaxation for the client.
I use mostly my forearms and sometimes elbows, always working with the muscle tissue. I aim to release the muscle in a way that is highly effective, pain-free and relaxing for the client.
I was lucky to train with Darren Pritchard and benefit from his 40 years of massage and training experience. I align with his ethos of non-adversarial work with the muscle as an extraordinarily effective technique of release and healing.
This massage technique uses suction cups to relieve tension, move lymph and encourage deep detox and repair response in the body. Reddening of the skin and ‘cup kisses’ can occur after treatment, especially in the areas with knotted tension (never on the face, as we use different cups and techniques for this area).
The red marks are a visible sign that fresh blood supply to the area has been invigorated and this will support any healing processes in the treatment area.
