Facial Reflexology for Emotional Well-Being : Healing and Sensory Self-Care with Dien Chan, Paperback / softback Book

Facial Reflexology for Emotional Well-Being : Healing and Sensory Self-Care with Dien Chan Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


The Vietnamese facial reflexology practice of Dien Chan offers simple touch and massage techniques that engage the reflexology points of the face to help you tap into the innate healing and regenerative powers of the body.

Taking the practice further, master practitioner Alex Scrimgeour shows how to integrate Dien Chan with Qigong and Chinese medicine as well as recent developments in neuroscience and cognitive science to treat a variety of emotional issues, from anxiety, addiction, and stress to trauma, dissociation, and PTSD. In this practical guide, Scrimgeour details easy facial reflexology self-care techniques to soothe the nervous system, calm your emotions, diminish stress and anxiety, obtain mental clarity, and bring a sense of safety and relaxation to your body-mind.

He shows how the techniques often generate immediate effects and how the ability to feel safe, peaceful, and content within your body can in turn transform your perception and experience of the world.

Sharing clear diagrams, the author presents the major Dien Chan facial maps and protocols for working with different emotional states.

He explores the energetic dynamic between the face and the body through the lens of neurophysiology and Qigong as well as looking at the connections between Qigong self-massage and the vagus nerve, revealing how self-massage techniques can effect change in the body-mind nexus.

He explains how to use Dien Chan for spiritual self-development and self-inquiry, providing nine meditations that combine Dien Chan with Qigong and traditional Eastern meditation practices. Revealing the holistic connections between the face and both physical and emotional health, this in-depth guide shows how simple facial reflexology practices can bring vibrant health and deep healing.
