Baby/Child Reflexology

Baby reflex is a form of reflexology that is designed specially for infants and children. It involves gentle stroking of reflex points on the feet to assist with common childhood ailments. Baby reflex may be helpful with common complaints such as coughs, colds, reflux and colic. Baby reflex may also enhance bonding with your child and it is quick and easy to work into your child’s routine on a daily basis. Parents/caregivers are taught the techniques by a qualified Reflexologist who is also a baby reflex specialist, enabling them to practise safely on their children.

What is baby reflex™? baby reflex™ is specially adapted reflexology for babies and toddlers. The techniques were originally developed for bonding and over the years have helped to ease, relieve and eliminate many baby discomforts - proving very popular and successful with parents.

How may it help? baby reflex™ may help many discomforts including boosting the immune system, ease colic, wind, reflux, constipation, tummy upsets, teething pains, sleeping problems and ear congestion. It is very gentle and very calming and soothing for your baby or toddler.

How did it all begin? Jenny Lee, MCSP MAR, who is both a Chartered Physiotherapist and a Qualified Reflexologist and Teacher, has been working with mothers and young children for over fifteen years during which time she carried out a number of pilot studies in conjunction with children's GPs, designed to examine the effects of Reflexology on childhood asthma. The results of those studies revealed benefits of reduced asthma ; better sleep patterns ; greater ability to relax ; a much improved "quality of life ", and, perhaps most important of all, an enjoyment by those children, of the actual treatment of Reflexology.

Those results were so valuable to those children that Jenny decided to introduce this new and exciting concept for Reflexology, called "baby reflex™".

How does it work?
