Reflexology for the Face

As a person, I am naturally highly inquisitive and in particular I love learning about alternative approaches to looking after physical health & wellbeing.

This week, Catherine Clooney contacted me and invited me to try a reflexology facial in Cork City in The Natural Clinic.

Honestly, I was very unsure as to what it was, although I had heard very positive comments about the benefits of a reflexology facial. Prior to hearing those comments, I thought that reflexology was only used on the feet but have since learned that it can in fact have wonderful benefits when used on the face and also the ears and hands!


I suppose it is important to point out that after having a reflexology facial that I would consider it to be more of a health beneficial treatment as opposed to what we traditionally regard as ‘beauty facials’. The products that are used are all natural and Catherine explained each step of the treatment.

The treatment begins with a consultation where you complete a health questionnaire discuss your overall health and any concerns that you have. Catherine then proceeds with the reflexology and she does explain step by step what she is doing before commencing.

I personally found the treatment to be very relaxing and I slept like a baby that night.

I would definitely go for another treatment – perhaps on the feet next time as I really think that reflexology is the perfect alternative treatment to help us all in this busy little stressful world that we live in.
