Using reflexology as an alternative therapy

Reflexology is based on the principle that reflex points found on the feet (and hands) correspond to specific organs, muscles, bones and systems in the body. By applying gentle pressure to congested areas in the feet, blockages can be released, thus restoring the flow of energy to the whole body. 
Reflexology for children can begin at birth.

Gently massaging a newborn’s feet helps to develop the essential bond required between parents and their tiny offspring. Reflexology can be used as a valuable tool for parents to dissipate their children’s stresses in a healthy and nurturing way. With young children the use of reflexology can also be combined with checking the development of their feet.
