Reflexology, also known as Zone therapy is an alternative medicine involving application of pressure on the feet, hand, head or face to relieve tension and treat imbalances based on the theory that there are reflex points on the feet, hand, head and face linked to every part of the body.
I practice Dien Chan – Multireflexology (the Original Method) that started in Vietnam 30 years ago by Professor Quoc Bui Chau, an acupuncturist who wanted to empower people with the ability to care for themselves. Unlike acupuncture, reflexology does not use needles, so it makes it easy for the none professional to achieve faster results when he/she knows how to perform facial reflexology on him or herself on a daily basis and even several times throughout the day.
Facial reflexology is fairly new in the US but it is big in Europe and Canada. There are 3 or 4 different approaches to this method but the basis are all Dien Chan. In Dien Chan, the body and the internal organs are mapped on the face and the head and treatment is based upon the stimulation of the location on the face and the local area. As an example, the area on the face that represents the area where the neck pain is is stimulated and the neck area itself is also massaged. Dien Chan is a therapeutic technique that can relieve numerous pains such as headaches, backaches, regulate intestinal transit, and so on.
Each session could run 45-60 minutes depending on the concerns of the client. Treatment protocols are created on an individual basis as to what the client wants or needs to accomplish.
