FACIAL ACUPRESSURE THERAPY

Facial Acupressure therapy treats the unique structure of the face to support emotional and stress relief. It also incorporates working with the Chinese  Acupressure facial map to benefit the whole body.

EASTERN FACIAL ACUPRESSURE

- SO MANY BENEFITS!

 The ancient Chinese treatment of acupressure has been practiced and perfected for over 5000 years. In simple terms, it was discovered that by pressing certain points of the body, pain or disease were alleviated – and often in regions of the body remote from the pain or pressure point!

Facial acupressure can be performed by a therapist or I can show you specific points to help you.

By pressing certain meridian/reflex points in the face, not only are there benefits to the facial area but for the whole body – a great bonus:
