Reflexology in Harrogate, Knaresborough, Ripon and surround plus baby reflexologying area

Many parents will have either tried, or heard of, the many benefits of reflexology.  The good news is that it can be adapted to suit babies and children so that they too can benefit from this wonderful therapy.   With parents nowadays often seeking drug-free therapies, reflexology offers a safe, non-invasive opportunity.

SOLEBODY is qualified in providing treatments for little people but can also teach parents and carers  Baby Reflex.

Baby Reflex techniques were originally developed for bonding with babies but over the years have helped to ease and eliminate many baby discomforts, proving to be very popular and successful with parents and carers. It can be used from the age of 4 weeks onwards and is safe and convenient.  Baby's clothes don't need to be removed.

The soothing form of finger-tip and thumb pressure has been specially created for parents to give to their babies on their feet and to toddlers on their hands. Parents can adjust the treatment to suit their own child's needs.

How can Baby Reflex help?
It can help to:

  • improve sleep patterns
  • ease teething pain
  • provide relief from colic, trapped wind and constipation
  • reduce ear and sinus congestion
  • boost the immune system
  • promote general well being
  • support parent and baby bonding
  • relax both parent and baby
Baby reflex was developed by Jenny Lee, a chartered physiotherapist and qualified reflexologist, in 2005 following 15 years' extensive research into the effects of regular reflexology on childhood asthma. The results of these studies revealed benefits of reduced asthma, better sleep patterns, greater ability to relax and much improved 'quality of life' and importantly, an enjoyment by those children of reflexology itself.  This encouraged Jenny to create Baby Reflex in 2005.

How is it taught?
Baby reflex  is taught to parents by Solebody over the course of three weekly 1 hour workshops.  During the workshops parents can practise on each other and the babies so that by the end of the session, they will have the confidence and skills to perform the techniques on their own baby.

The workshops are:

Week 1 - feeding/digesting
Week 2 - sleeping/comforting
Week 3 - well being

Teaching is carried out either in parents' homes or local rooms with small groups of parents or individuals.

 - Course notes/charts plus practice 'feet'
- Individual, tailored attention
- Ongoing support and advice after the course

¬£20 - ¬£30 per session depending on number of participants and venue.  Payable by cash or cheque in full at first session.
