What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is a natural therapy using finger tip and thumb pressure on special points on the feet and hands, which correspond to all parts of the body.
First discovered by the Chinese and Egyptians three thousand years ago, Reflexology is now accepted world wide as an effective and complementary therapy treatment.
Baby reflex has created special techniques of Reflexology for Parents to give on the feet of their own babies and on the hands of the more mobile toddler, with the added special appeal of well known nursery rhymes and lullabies.
If you like using Natural therapies to care for yourself and for your family, baby reflex gives you the opportunity to carrying out a fuss free, five minute treatment, at any time or location: in a cafe, on a bus, or even in a supermarket queue!
Whilst baby reflex aims to comfort your baby and may help calm your fractious toddler, you and your infant can enjoy the natural bonding promoted by the gentle touch of baby reflex on a daily basis.

All parents must learn baby reflex from a qualified Reflexologist. They can be individually taught or, better still, be part of a small group learning baby reflex together with their own babies.
Parents are taught by baby reflex practitioners to use specific finger and thumb pressure techniques on their baby’s feet and on their baby’s hands when the babies start becoming mobile.
