REFLEXOLOGY AND BABIES
By Lorraine Hughes, MNRRI
I am still a relatively young Reflexologist, having qualified in September 2005, so it's no surprise that the areas that I am most drawn to in my infancy as a practitioner are babies and children. For this article, I am going to focus on babies and reflexology.
I've recently started working on babies here in Ennis and I am so struck by the prevalence of asthma and ezcema, usually combined. Babies are having such difficulty sleeping because there is so much stuff going on in their heads literally! It's all chest infections and sinuses that I am coming across with other issues cropping up from time to time.
Some of the research I'm unearthing is so excited and vociferous about Reflexology and Babies that it seems like it could be the next revolution in alternative healthcare. Reflexology is very beneficial for babies. They generally respond to treatment very quickly as they don't have the same build up of stresses and strains within their bodies as adults do.
