What is Reflexology?
Reflexology is based on the principle where reflex points found on the feet and hands correspond to specific organs, muscles, bones and body functions; much in the same way as acupuncture. By applying gentle pressure to specific areas in the feet, blockages can be released to restore the flow of energy to the whole body.
Results for babies are often experienced immediately and this is particularly helpful if your child is crying or if they have some kind of tummy discomfort.
Why Newtone Reflexology Workshops?
Babies respond very positively to reflexology. Many mothers will instinctively rub their children’s feet and hands when their child is fretful. Newtone Therapy Workshops can further your knowledge in teaching specific sequences that will be beneficial to your baby's wellbeing. Reflexology is effective and perfectly safe.
Some of the benefits include:
•Enhanced bonding between parent and baby
•Helping your baby to feel more secure
•Increased relaxation and deeper, longer periods of sleep
•Reduced crying and emotional distress
•Simulation of baby’s circulation, digestion, nervous and lymphatic systems
•Relief from wind, colic and constipation
•Relief from teething pain
•Boosting the immune system
•Helping to prevent the symptoms of asthma and other chronic conditions
Who is it suitable for?
Reflexology can be used on anyone, of any age. Our classes welcome newborns (4 weeks plus) as well as babies and toddlers. Reflexology is particularly beneficial for babies who experienced an assisted delivery. As your baby begins to walk, the practice of reflexology can also be combined with checking the development of their feet. Feet being a complex structure important for the whole body's alignment.
You can use reflexology as a natural healing therapy for acute illnesses as well as a preventative tool for general wellbeing.
What does it involve?
Each reflexology treatment follows a simple, 3-step formula:
•Relax and bring blood flow to the foot with a quick warm up
•Find the relevant reflex area
•Apply a technique.
Over this course you will learn different techniques and discover which works best for your baby. The goal of this course is to break a pattern of stress brought on by common ailments.
