Facial reflexology - All about it

Hi! Nice that you’ve showed some interest in a Facial reflexology session!

You’ll read right here what it is exactly, what it can do for you and what the programme of a session with us looks like :)

If you have any more questions, just send me a message from the contact us section or DM me through Instagram.


Facial reflexology (Fr) was discovered by professor Bui Quoc Chau, a Vietnamese teacher of acupuncture. He found out that using certain points in a particular order and area had great effects on the health and therefore he stopped using his acupuncture needles during his treatments. Bui Quoc Chau started to write about Fr in 1970 in Vietnam. His goal was not only to heal people but especially that his patients also learned how to heal themselves.

Fr is different than acupressure of acupuncture. It’s not based on the meridians but on a multi-reflexology network with hundreds of maps and reflex points.

The therapy of professor Bui Quoc Chau was acknowledged by the Chinese Medical Academy as one of the fastest-acting (in terms of response) of the Eastern therapies.

Fr is the newest form of reflexology worldwide but also the most powerful reflexology in the world so far! And the beauty of it is: after a visit to a practitioner, you can continue to treat yourself at home!


How does it work?

With Fr we work with a metal tool with a rounded tip on the facial skin and search for points that look or feel different. We stimulate these reflex points/areas of the face that are linked to the body and organs to help to bring back balance. We try to bring this balance in the autonomic nerve system (rest and digest).

By touching these points and areas of the face, the brain receives a signal. The brain will make sure that the self-healing ability of the body gets activated and sends energy to the areas in need to restore them. This is how we try to restore the correct flow of energy in the body.


What does a Fr appointment look like?

A regular treatment will approximately take 30 - 45 minutes.

Wear something that feels comfortable and warming to you. Wearing makeup is not a problem.

The treatment itself is not painful but very relaxing instead; sometimes people even fall asleep. You will lay down on a heated massage table nicely tucked in under a blanket. One of the practitioner’s hands will support the face/facial skin and with the other hand, hold the tool. Imagine that a rounded tool is lightly going over the surface of your facial skin making little movements in a certain order/area. Your eyes are closed the entire time and during the whole treatment there won’t be any speaking so you can deeply relax.

After the treatment we go together over what was noticed. Also, you will receive a personalized map of the face with coloured-in areas. You will be explained exactly what to do with your map so that you can keep on treating yourself when you are back home. The more reflexology gets applied, the better it will work its magic on you. Treating yourself once a day at home is hence recommended.


What will happen after the treatment?

“Tùy” is Vietnamese for “it depends” and that is the truth. How it goes depends on so many factors! Think of age, health, the will to change, the ability to let go etc.

You cannot predict what will exactly happen after the treatment. Some discomforts will pass by quickly and some of them will need more attention.

The beauty of a Fr treatment is that you are given the gift of self-treatment and therefore you hold the self-healing process in your own hands! You can treat yourself at home to continue the healing process.

Depending on your symptoms and goals, we will agree on a treatment plan. Sometimes that will require coming in every other week or maybe every month.

During our sessions, we will evaluate how things are going for you, what has changed, what is needed etc.

It is wise to write some sentences down every day when you treat yourself so you won’t have to remember at once everything you’ve noticed during this period. These notes will be very useful during our evaluation moments.


What can be treated with Fr?

Fr holds protocols for all kinds of symptoms. It doesn’t only treat symptoms, it also works in a preventive way. The healing abilities range from migraines, hay fever and skin problems, to allergies, (food) intolerances, chronic inflammation and emotional imbalance. In addition, for neck or back pain, insomnia, anxiety, stress and depression, Fr can help you out.


Are there any dangers related to Fr?

Fr is for everybody but in some cases it’s better NOT to perform it. It is better to avoid Fr when you:

  • Have Botox or fillers, or had cosmetic surgery
  • Are pregnant (always consult first with your specialist)
  • Have a pacemaker and/or mechanical implants
  • Use psycho-pharmaceuticals (always consult first with your specialist)
  • Suffer from dementia/Alzheimer’s
  • Have open wounds
  • Have wet acne/eczema
  • Have recently had surgery



Take into account that a Fr practitioner is a facilitator for self-healing and not a doctor!  Activations are NOT meant to treat, cure, or prevent a disease. Always consult a doctor when in doubt and/or in need!


Give yourself the gift of (self) healing!
