The Bergman Method – a special kind of Facial Reflexology


If you want to feel uplifted physically, facially and spiritually, Bergman Method Facial Reflexology may just be the treatment for you.

Being able to give you the best possible treatment, tailored to your needs, is the main reason why keeping up to date with developments in Reflexology is important to me. That, and I love learning new techniques.

Facial Reflexology was a bit of a departure for me. I confess I was a little nervous about the course, as I have only ever worked on feet and hands. Would I be able to create a safe space/environment? Would my touch be good enough? Would my clients be comfortable enough to close their eyes and lose themselves in the treatment? Well, the answer was a resounding YES.  

Granted, learning the routine took a little time, but with the support from Ziggie Bergman, who developed this method, during and after the course, I was soon working my way to achieving Qualified Practitioner status with three lovely case study clients.

How does it work?

Based on the same principles as foot and hand reflexology that you know and love, facial reflexology is a different way to achieve the same benefits for your health and wellbeing. Still, if not more, deeply relaxing, the proximity of the facial reflexes to the brain means they are super sensitive and quick to respond to stimulation. Reflexes out of balance are easily identified, helping you to improve your wellbeing.

However, it does not stop there. By working on the reflexes on the face, there are some added benefits. The techniques:

• stimulate the natural production of collagen and elastin;
• boost lymph drainage;
• release muscle tension; and
• increase blood circulation.

What does that mean exactly?

Clients can experience some (some experience all) of the following:

• reduce stress and reduce the signs of stress on your face;
• have smoother skin;
• improved skin tone;
• reduced facial lines;
• reduced facial puffiness; and
• leave with a healthy glow.

Feedback from my three case studies:

“My skin feels great after the treatment” SB
“My head felt calmer, body freer and feet pleasantly loose and springy” JT
“Most enjoyable hour of my day” KH
