What Is It?
Baby reflex is a natural gentle therapy which can benefit both babies and parents. It is a gentle form of reflexology created especially for babies, infants and toddlers from one month to three years, and is an effective form of reflexology that mums and dads can give to their own baby's feet.
This soothing form of finger-tip and thumb pressure has been specially created for parents to give to their babies on their feet and to their toddlers on their hands.

Courses and sessions
I am running short courses for parents so that you will be able to give this wonderful treatment to your own baby or child as often as you wish. My three week course will equip you with the knowledge of techniques to help with digestion problems such as constipation, or issues at bedtime including being overtired.
This course is suitable for parents and guardians.
Handouts will be available, and the relaxed atmosphere will ensure we can accommodate your baby’s needs.
A baby reflex course consists of three sessions lasting an hour each (one a week) OR two 1.5 hour sessions. During each session parents are shown simple techniques and how to tailor the treatment to their own baby or toddler. This includes helping with calming baby, colic relief, teething pains, aiding the immune system, ear complaints, constipation and wind.
The Baby Reflex for Toddlers courses are for toddlers from 10 months old up to 5 years. The course is taught as two 1½ hour sessions over the course of 2 weeks. The workshops are themed, week 1 focuses on well being, calming breathing, constipation and digestion, decongesting and supporting body’s defences, calming a hyper toddler, and first aid for stings. Week 1 is taught on the hands. Week 2 covers how to do the sequences learnt in week 1 but on the feet. Baby Reflex for Toddlers is taught to parents without toddlers present where possible, as there are then less distruptions, so trying to book you course in for nap times is helpful.
Mother and baby 'one to one' sessions
If you prefer one to one mother (or dad) baby sessions are available. These can be organised in your own home.

How it works
It works in the same way as reflexology on adults, however, it is specially adapted to suit the needs of babies and toddlers, taking into account their size and well being. It works on the belief that reflex points on the feet and hands are linked to all the organs, bodily systems and skeletal structure of the body. A very gentle touch is applied to these reflex points in order to promote relaxation and feeling of well being.
The difference between
Baby Reflex and baby
Baby Reflex is portable, there is no requirement to remove clothes, as it is done on the feet and hands, and in fact can be done anywhere, even in the queue at the supermarket.
