Gentle Touch Reflexology for Babies and Children
Reflexology isn't just for adults. Children and babies love it too!
Having witnessed first hand how reflexology has helped support my own children through times of illness and unrest, I decided to learn more about a very special technique called Gentle Touch Reflexology for Babies and Children and became a practitioner and instructor of this wonderful therapy.
Gentle Touch Reflexology uses the lightest of touch so that it is suitable for newborns all the way through to 16 year olds! It is focused around the baby/child and what they need and it is incredibly versatile meaning you can give a treatment almost anywhere.
Some of the benefits include:
- aids relaxation
- promotes a sense of calm
- improves sleep
- improves mood
- additional techniques to help with teething and digestive issues
