WHAT IS BABY REFLEXOLOGY?
Although reflexology has been used for centuries to treat ailments in adults, it’s fast becoming a popular treatment of choice for babies too. “This is because reflexology is a gentle, non-invasive treatment using only the pressure points in the hands and feet to stimulate and revitalise natural energies found in everyone, including adults, children and babies,” says Baby Reflex founder, Jenny Lee. The pressure point stimulation encourages the release of this vital energy and helps to restore normal functions to muscles, bones, blood vessels and vital organs.
“Babies have soft, pliable skin and enjoy touching their own feet and having their feet touched,” says Jenny, “which is often why they’re so receptive to reflexology.”
Jenny carried out pilot research studies in childhood asthma and the reflexologists found that reflexology could help to reduce mild asthma and constipation and that children’s medication could be safely given with the therapy.
Jenny was encouraged to extend her research and practice of reflexology to younger children and babies. She did just that and Baby Reflex was born in the UK.
Parents report that they have had success with reflux and teething problems since using Baby Reflex and their babies sleep better.
Here is how you can calm your kid down:
1. STOMACH AREA PAIN (UPPER AND LOWER)
If your child shows signs of heartburn or constipation, massage the region between the center of the foot and the stack of your feet. In case they are experiencing gas and bloating in the lower intestine, try to massage your child between the center of the feet and the heel.
2. STOMACH PAIN (SOLAR PLEXUS)
Try rubbing the focal point on your foot and go towards the start of the curve so you can reach the so called, Solar Plexus where nerves and the lungs are settled. This will help with gastric inconveniences, spasms, and other issues.
3. HEAD AND TEETH ACHE
Simply rub your child’s tips on the toes.
If your kid is experiencing chest block, just tenderly press and rub the stack of his/her feet.
Massage your child’s heels in order to reduce the symptoms of the sudden development of certain organs in its tiny body.
To prevent this all you have to do is rub the inside of your child’s toes.
