Frequently Asked Questions
What is Facial Reflexology and how does it work?
Facial Reflexology aims to help your entire body function at its optimum level, with one side effect, a younger radiant and glowing complexion. Facial Reflexology also promotes the production of new skin tissue and improves skin tone.
Facial Reflexology focuses on reflex (pressure) points on the face, which help stimulate the body's healing mechanism's and help improve circulation and nerve conduction, encouraging the release of toxins from the body via the lymphatic system. Balancing reflex points in the face connect to and help balance the entire body. The Bergman Method is clear and simple to understand; it has been developed over more than 20 years working with therapists around the world and is based on 'Zone therapy', which most Reflexologists are familiar with as it forms the basis of modern Reflexology.
Facial Reflexology uses a compression technique to stimulate reflex points in which the finger and thumb or finger applies pressure and also walks over a zone in a caterpillar motion by bending and straightening whilst always maintaining pressure across the area.

How long do treatments take?
Treatments are usually an hour in total, but can be extended by prior arrangement. You need to allow a further 20-30 minutes on your first
treatment so that a case history can be taken.
Where is the best place for treatments to take place, in the home?
For the treatment to be most effective, it is helpful for the location of treatment to be somewhere quiet and without interruption.
I will bring a La Fuma chair, which is like a sun lounger and it does not take up much space.
Will the treatment be painful?
Most people appear to find treatments very relaxing, but should you experience any pain or discomfort I will adapt the pressure immediately.
The most important thing is for the treatments to be relaxing and enjoyable.
Will my feet tickle?
No. You will see that the treatment method does not tickle the feet.
Do you do workplace visits?
Yes, this is a possibility.
