Facial reflexology

Also known as Dien Chan or Vietnamese facial reflexology , this reflexology technique originates from Vietnam , thanks to the work of Bùi Quôc Châu, an acupuncturist of the 1980s. But facial reflexology is not that recent: in fact, interventions on the patient’s face were known in China and Japan as early as 5,000 years ago. What do these interventions consist of? Facial reflexology represents a specific zonal massage method applied to the subject’s face.

By massaging the reflex zones of the face, the facial reflexologist is able to treat disorders of organs and parts of the body. According to reflexology, in addition to the nervous system and the meridian system, our body is covered by a reflexological path according to which every stimulus is followed by an organic response . Each part of the body would therefore reflect the whole organism and each organ corresponds to a reflex point in a specific area of ​​the skin.


Good face to bad habits

In the face there are our habits, our physical form, our state of health. In short, our history and our daily life. Facial reflexology is very useful in the treatment of some common ailments such as cervical. Neck pain is almost always a sign of bad habits or incorrect behavior : it becomes acute when we are stressed, it does not give up if we spend hours in front of the computer, it torments us when we feel oppressed by a person or a situation.

Facial reflexology is able to combat neck pain , contractures, muscle aches and difficulty in moving the joints. According to the precepts of Dien Cham facial reflexology , the spine corresponds to the line of the nose . Touching the areas mentioned also acts on other points of the body where contractures due to cervical pain accumulate more easily. If the treatment alone is not enough, you can combine specific exercises for neck pain or continue the treatment even in sleep, using special ergonomic pillows designed specifically for those suffering from neck pain.
