Short History of Facial Reflexology/Acupressure – John Tsagaris unique facial reflexology technique
Facial reflexology has a long history in Asian culture which has become an effective treatment and diagnostic tool for facial enhancement. In the 1980’s Professor Bui Quoc Chau and his team of doctors, in Vietnam, evolved the concept of facial reflexology developed in a very scientific way to what is now known as ‘Facytherapy’.
John Tsagaris has been inspired and using his years of experience and knowledge developed his facial reflexology exploring and treating the facial landscape incorporating this to his work of facial enhancement.
His signature Skin Poetry treatment is the outcome of his unique approach to health and beauty.
