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.
