Facial Reflex Therapy with Mariko Hiyama
When Mariko first told me about facial reflex therapy, I was intrigued. I have heard of foot reflexology and, therefore, deduced that it is of the same or similar school of practice and the difference is the subject organ – i.e. the therapist would be working on my face, instead of my feet.
For years, I have learnt from various practitioners about how face is connected to our body and mind and how to read a person’s health from his/her face. Naturally, this has got my curiosity going.
So when Mariko came over last week, we decided on an impulse to see if we can set up the therapy room here. Once it is set up, we were immediately mesmerised by the calm energy and cosy atmosphere in the room. And the next impulse kicked in - I just blurted out, saying that I am ready for a session of massage now!
And in response to my excitement, Mariko generously offered me a trial session.
It was an amazing experience. Mariko worked on my facial muscles with a special focus on hormone balancing. As she moved her fingers to different areas of my face, my body was getting more and more relaxed. At the same time, I could feel the warm energy flowing through various parts of my body.
For someone who has never been a fan of any facial treatments, this session really did away my biases and sceptics. Like a kid who has just discovered her new toy, I immediately ran up a few girl friends to gloat about my first facial reflex experience.
I am so glad that Mariko loves the energy in our lifestyle studio and will be offering her fabulous treatments here.
Comparing to foot reflexology, I would have facial reflex therapy any day – for one, it is less painful; with the added benefit that my face glows beautifully!
Some Testimonials from Mariko's clients
"I have no words but to thank you, Mariko. I feel there is a circle of calmness in and around me, a kind of energy.
