Reflexology for Children

It is a safe method and an excellent form of prevention starting with young babies, while at the same time allowing time to connect with your young baby. It helps with development. These babies seem happier, more content, recover faster from any upsets or illness and do well in school. Babies born to mothers who had Reflexologyduring pregnancy report back, that the babies are very content and thriving.

It also works excellently for both the physical ailments and psychological traumas of growing up, such as injury to limbs, acute and chronic conditions, as well as the stress of being a child in these times.


Hyperactive children become calm. They will lie down for the treatments and enjoy it and even demand for it to last longer if anything. Parents find it a good way to calm children before bedtime.

Autistic children respond positively to having their feet massaged, even though they may not be willing to be hugged, or other forms of contact are not acceptable for these children. Reflexology (either hand or foot) is acceptable with most autistic children. Conditions subside and even disappear.

Children who have been told they will need a tonsillectomy in the near future have still got their tonsils in situ 20 years later. Other conditions, such as glue ear and the need for grommets is not necessary after a few sessions of Reflexology.

Children with Asthma have had their doctors reduce the use of their medication as a result of the improvement in their chests. In some cases no further need for medication is required.

Children who constantly got repeated chest infections every year or suffer from bad hay fever or allergies, no longer suffer after having a course of Reflexology (a course consists usually of 5/6 sessions).

Appendectomy has been suspended after a few Reflexology sessions.

Resolving the tension and anxiety a child was suffering due to a situation in school, just to mention a few.
