A useful key to calm your gorgeous baby
Most people have heard of reflexology but not everyone knows what it is and the benefits it can bring.
Reflexology is a relaxing foot massage and works by stimulating the nerve endings on the foot which correspond to organs and zones of the body. In this way reflexology treats the entire body and tones the system.
In adults specific conditions such as arthritis, migraines and insomnia are treated and reflexology is also useful for relaxation and stress.
Baby Reflexology is a great technique for ‘calming your baby’ , improve his/her health and it is a great tool to bond with your precious angle.
Baby reflexology differs from reflexology for adults, in that there are only 6 areas of the foot which are worked to achieve relief from teething pain, colic, insect stings and to sooth baby and boost the immune system. Babies are not treated by the reflexologist, but parents are taught the techniques to use with their own children. Babyreflex is easy to learn and babies love it!
Reflexology for babies compliments baby massage, but is very different in that rather than setting time aside at home for a massage session, babyreflex can be done any time anywhere, in the car, on a picnic, or waiting for big sister outside the school gates, as it only involves removing a bootee and can be done in minutes while Mum or Dad cradles baby.
If you have ever been standing in the supermarket queue with a screaming toddler or have had sleepless nights when the little one just will not settle, then this is the answer!
‘Babyreflex’ is taught to parent groups or individuals. It is suitable for babies from 2 weeks to 2 years old.
