Baby Reflex is a gentle form of reflexology created especially for babies, infants and toddlers from one month to three years (and on!). It requires no creams, lotions or oils and there is no need to undress the baby before the treatment.
Babies love being touched and cuddled. Gentle, loving touch helps them to feel safe, secure and part of the family. Most babies enjoy their feet being stroked and will soon learn when to offer their feet for this enjoyable bonding treatment. Parents/carers giving baby reflex to their baby’s feet may strengthen the natural loving bond between mother and baby and father and baby. It has been found that parents/carers may easily calm their babies with this fuss free, convenient and soothing treatment.
Baby Reflex gives parents/carers the opportunity to learn special and gentle techniques from a Reflexologist qualified in Baby Reflex. This soothing form of finger-tip and thumb pressure has been specially created for parents/carers to give to their babies on their feet and to their toddlers on their hands. Parents/carers can adjust the treatment to suit their own child’s needs.
Courses for Baby Reflex are delivered either one to one or as part of a small group, no more than 6 parents/carers. For future dates please contact me.
Baby Reflex 4 Toddlers is a development of baby reflex, which, after much research and development, materialised in 2010. Instigated by Jenny Lee, at the requests of baby reflex practitioners and parents, Baby Reflex 4 Toddlers has been developed by Penny Odhams. Babies become Toddlers when they find their feet and explore the world. With this in mind, working on a Toddler’s hands is natural and effective. Penny Odhams has developed a routine, accompanied by nursery rhymes and lullabies. This routine takes a few minutes to apply, is very appealing to toddlers and parents alike and is great fun!
Reflex 4 Toddlers aims to:
Encourage and develop the bonding between parent/carer and toddler
Be calming, especially for those toddler tantrums!
Improve sleep, great before bed!
Support the developing body by improving wellbeing
Parents/carers may attend courses with specially trained Baby Reflex 4 Toddler Reflexologists who teach the techniques for this simple routine
Courses for Toddler Reflex are delivered either one to one or as part of a small group, no more than 6 parents/carers. For future dates please contact me.
