The first book to present the innovative Vietnamese method of facial reflexology

· Includes simple pressure-point massage instructions that can be self-administered and that provide immediate results

· Fully illustrated with easy-to-follow diagrams of 57 facial pressure points and their correspondences within the body

It is possible to rub certain zones of your face to relieve a backache or the beginnings of a migraine. It is likewise possible to stop a common cold from developing in less than a minute. Facial reflexology, one of the simplest and most effective healthcare methods, provides rapid relief for many of these common ailments. Developed in 1980 by Vietnamese doctors in Ho Chi Minh City as a less invasive alternative to facial acupuncture, facial reflexology uses healing principles based on the I Ching and Buddhist teachings. The therapy is simple enough that it can be self-administered by a beginner with immediate results and is also a valuable tool for healthcare professionals.

In Facial Reflexology Marie-France Muller introduces this healing practice to the English-speaking world for the first time. She describes the mechanics of facial reflexology--facial diagnosis, facial pressure points, reflex zones, massage and pressure techniques--and provides healing routines both for treating acute ailments and maintaining overall good health. Included is an extensive dictionary of more than 200 common ailments, accompanied by therapeutic instructions and easy-to-follow diagrams of the points to be stimulated, for complaints such as indigestion, asthma, pinched nerves, fatigue, insomnia, menstrual cramps, migraines, high blood pressure, sprains, pulled muscles, and even the common cold.

From the Back Cover:

HEALTH / BODYWORK

The main objective of facial reflexology--a Vietnamese system of facial acupressure--is to prevent health problems before they begin and to relieve existing troubles before they become entrenched. The system was originally developed in the 1980s by doctors in Ho Chi Minh City as a less invasive alternative to facial acupuncture. Made accessible to the West by Nhuan Le Quang, an 魩gr頴o France, Vietnamese facial reflexology--or Dien’ Cham’--promotes a healthy flow of energy throughout the body by stimulation of 57 acupressure points and associated “reflex zones” on the face. As with other reflexology systems, such as foot or hand reflexology, it is possible to visualize a projection of the entire human body superimposed over the face. One can then stimulate an organ or body part by massaging the corresponding facial reflex zone.

In Facial Reflexology Marie-France Muller introduces this Vietnamese healing practice to the English-speaking world for the first time. She presents 13 basic summary diagrams that locate all 57 numbered facial points and clearly delineates their corresponding reflex zones for the entire body. These diagrams are accompanied by easy-to follow instructions on basic massage and pressure-point techniques.

The author gives point-by-point instructions for two general health-maintenance routines and offers a dictionary of therapeutic sessions for more than 200 common ailments such as asthma, back pain, bronchitis, digestive problems, high blood pressure, insomnia, menstrual difficulties, and ulcers. Therapeutic instructions and simple diagrams of the relevant points and zones are included for every condition.

A chapter on advanced Dien’ Cham’ teaches readers how to select points for personalized health-maintenance routines and a final chapter on Dien’ Cham’ for animals applies the principles of facial reflexology to dogs, cats, and even horses. Appendices on Chinese facial massage and Japanese scalp massage will provide useful points of reference for practitioners more familiar with these other acupressure systems. Facial reflexology is simple enough that it can be self-administered by a beginner with immediate results but comprehensive enough to be a valuable tool for healthcare professionals as well.
