Baby reflexology for parents*
Regular massage of your baby’s feet strengthens the special bond between parent and child, calms the baby, and helps to strengthen their immune system. Babies and young children are incredibly responsive to reflexology.
Most babies love having their feet touched, so this is a wonderful way to soothe them and improve their health. It can be done in just five minutes and the techniques can also be used with older children and even adults. The areas that you learn to massage, are the same on every foot, only the size of the foot will be growing with time. 😊
Baby reflexology can bring relief in case of
- Sleeping problems
- Cramps of the belly
- Reflux or stomach ache
- Teething pain
- Ear/eye problems
The massage is done on the feet, with a light and firm touch of the thumb and the fingers. It can be done at any time and any place, since you only need to take off the socks (or not even that)😊
For parents, grandparents who would like to connect more with their baby and help with different complaints of their little one. The best time to learn these techniques is when the baby is between 1-11 months old. Later on, babies tend to become (a bit) more active and so, learning and applying the techniques may become more tricky. Once learned though, reflexology can become part of the bedtime routine and can be applied to older children too.
