ACUPRESSURE OF FACIAL
The parasympathetic nerve – also called the calming or recovery nerve- dictates the intended healthy state of our vegetative nervous system. The sympathetic nerve enables our body to reach a state of emergency if
threatened. The bodies emergency systems are activated. Numerous vegetative functions are being lowered to
a minimum in order to focus all physical resources toward the efforts of either Fight or Flight.
Throughout human evolution this reflex proved live saving and existential, for example as a reaction to the sight of a saber-toothed tiger.
Yet for managing and coping with the challenges of our modern daily life, this reflex proves to be of no
particular use and even counterproductive. During longer strenuous periods of time or in case of long term
psychological duress- what was intended to be a exceptional state becomes a permanent one.
The physical and psychological stress under which the sympathetic nervous system enables us to survive a
potentially threatening situation also greatly affects our digestion alongside the flow of lymph, and our abilities to detox and self-heal.
Physical manifestations are plenty and range from auto-immune deficiencies, malfunction of the thyroid gland, problems of digestion, increase in body weight, migraines and Tinnitus up to a permanent fatigue syndrome and premature aging.
Such a stress- induced symptom can be improved swiftly with the combination of acupressure to the facial
reflex zones and the systematical loosening of lymphoid blockades, that I exclusively offer. These treatments,
originating in traditional Chinese medicine, should not replace the visit to a doctor.They have been proven
extraordinarily effective on the thousands of years long holistic path to beauty and health-as functional tools
to improve our vegetative physical functions. Starting out with delicate focused touches directed to deactivate
the sympathetic nervous system and activate the parasympathetic nervous system.
A lot of my patients can actually “let go“ of themselves for the first time and relax- some drift into a profound
sleep after a few minutes.
If your nervous system has found from aroused state to a calm state, we then manually stimulate certain facial areas and lymph flow- just as in a pediatric reflex massage- in order to address certain physical functions directly, so that body and skin may return to that natural state in which they renew as well as self-heal.
It‘s what your
