From Dien Chan or Multireflexology, the original method of facial reflexology, other methods have been developed in Europe. Dien Chan was developed by Professor Bùi Quôc Châu , a teacher and practitioner of acupuncture from Vietnam. Similar to the principles that support reflexology, Dien Chan focuses on manipulating 257 points and reflex zones (see illustration) located in the face. Stimulating these with hands and gentle tools that help alleviate neck and back pain, and other discomforts. I preferred Dien Chan for its ability to tie the therapeutic aspect with beauty benefits. It is also a treatment protocol that promotes self care because clients can purchase the tools to use at home and have the ability to encourage faster results and maintenance.
Some of the benefits include:
- instant relief of tension on the face, neck scalp and brain
- It works with the entire body system to address specific issues
- Works to firm the facial muscles, reduces and/or prevent fine lines and wrinkles
- Stimulation increases the blood circulation, and activate lymphatic drainage to achieve a naturally glowing complexion
How Does Dien Chan (Facial Reflexology) Work?
Just as reflexology shows the human body projected on the soles of the feet, Multireflexology – Dien Chan provides projections on the face. Unlike other reflexology techniques, the Dien Chan has more than 30 projections that we call diagrams of projection. They create Multireflexology.
Through firm touch and gentle manipulation to the face, Dien Chan techniques restore the energy, sending balance to blocked areas that it needs the most. Facial stimulation is powerful because it has the shortest pathways for the nerve cells connect to the brain stem and it releases chemicals called endorphins.
Facial reflexology works to send a message to the Central Nervous System (CNS) to direct the energy to specific organs and glands to regulate your blood, hormones, and most importantly, boost your immune system. It is also an essential workout for the face to get a younger and healthier look.
Reflexology tools and application techniques also increase the ability of the skin to absorb the essential oils and/or essential oil and plant based products.
Chan Beaute combines the aesthetic (external) with the therapeutic (internal). Chan Beaute was born from the need to add a therapeutic dimension to aesthetic treatments. Based upon Professor Bui Quoc Chau’s research and tests, many of visible signs on the face reflect internal and external weaknesses. Using the Dien Chan diagrams, the face is mapped for visible signs and tested with the use of tools to determine the imbalance.
Beauty marks, moles, wrinkles, dimples and spots on our face reflect a potential internal imbalance and indicate present or past weaknesses. By observing tone, brightness and texture, the face is an important source of information about the general internal state of the body and is a very good indicator of our health.Bumps found on the face during a massage using cleansing milk or cream, as well as the marks mentioned above, enable us to find the origin of the imbalance.
