Child Reflexology

Child reflexology is just as effective for children of all ages supporting mood, anxiety, depression, sleep, tension and concentration to name a few.

It can be more effective with children for a number of reasons including, their curiosity to learn self-help techniques that they can use on their own hands and feet, their problems are new to them and have had less time to damage their body as a whole over a sustained period of time, they have less emotional experience allowing them more open to self-healing, change and an holistic approach.

The benefits of child reflexology are similar to that of Traditional Reflexology but more specific for children can include:

  • Improves the immune and digestive system
  • Promotes better sleep
  • Relieves pain and tension
  • Alleviates the feeling of anxiousness or agitation
  • Improves concentration
  • Promotes better focus
  • Promotes relaxation and calmness
  • Improves moods and energy levels
  • Promotes healthier wellbeing
  • And many more

Some of the conditions that reflexology can support include:

  • Digestion conditions and disorders (colic, reflux, constipation)
  • Teething
  • Disturbed Sleep/Nightmares/Night Terrors
  • Asthma including respiratory infections and disorders
  • Panic Attacks
  • Stress and focus associated with revising for exams
  • Stress and Anxiety
  • Anger/Aggression
  • Hyperactivity and Underactivity
  • Allergies
  • Skin problems including eczema and acne
  • Insomnia
  • Confidence issues

A parent/guardian will always be present during the treatment and techniques can be taught to the child, parent and/or guardian that can be used at home. Sessions for a child can be anywhere between 30-60 minutes depending on their age.
