What is Baby Reflex?
Baby Reflex is a series of specially adapted Reflexology Techniques originally developed for increasing bonding between parents and babies. Originally developed by Jenny Lee, MCSP MAR, a Chartered Physiotherapist and a qualified Reflexologist who carried out several pilot research studies in conjunction with GPs to examine the effects of Reflexology treatments on asthmatic children. The results showed that reduced asthma, better sleep patterns and a greater ability to relax along with an improved ‘quality of life’. Jenny then decided to create an easily learned method of treating babies which could be passed on to the parents.
Baby Reflex can have the following benefits:
- Calming & relaxing
- Improve Sleep pattern
- Help boost the immune system
- Help with congestion, coughs and colds
- Improve digestive function such as colic and constipation
- Help with teething pain and distress
- Improve general wellbeing
Baby reflex works in the same way as Reflexology on adults, but is specially adapted to suit the needs of babies according to their age and size with a feather light touch being used. Baby Reflex is easy to use any place, any time – a treatment should last no longer than 5 minutes with no more than 3 treatments give in any 24 hours.
Baby reflex for parents/grandparents/carers is taught in 3 sessions (for babies over 4 weeks). These sessions are divided into Feeding & Digestion, Sleeping & Calming and Wellbeing (which includes pain relief for teething and boosting the immune system).
Workshops are either taught 1:1 in your own home or in small groups at the Positive Health Therapy Centre in Borough Green. Parents can either practice on each other or on dolly feet which I supply. I will also give a handy credit care sized chart to take away with you as a reminder of what you have learnt.
