Facial Reflexology: Benefits, Common Points, & tools to Promote Body Balance and Healing
Learning how everything is connected and what you can do to balance your mind and body from the inside out has been quite the journey of self-discovery. Since getting involved in more holistic healing and meditation practices, I was able to get more familiar with facial reflexology and how this concept focuses on the relationship between specific points on our face and the organs in our body.
After experiencing this for myself, I learned that triggering these points produces a chemical response that communicates with our brain to create healing, based on traditional Chinese medicine. This goes way more in-depth than just getting a regular facial with an aesthetician since the benefits range all the way from treating insomnia to relieving head tension.
Facial Tools: jade rollers, hands, or rolling tools that will get the body to respond.
