Learning to care for your child with reflexology

Reflexology is a very adaptable and beneficial therapy and easy to apply once you learn some basic techniques!

The good news is that is relatively easy for many of us to learn these new techniques and not only use them for ourselves but also use them for our children and loved ones.

Sure, reflexology therapists have to undergo extensive training to learn the specifics of how to treat others professionally and in a mindful way. Mainly, this is to ensure that all therapists adhere to (and are held accountable to) the highest standards in their profession. The fact is, you can use the information in a non-professional capacity for yourself and your partner or children.

I started out treating my little nephews as babies and they responded brilliantly to short sessions of reflexology on their feet. It is very soothing, encouraging good digestion, better sleep patterns and the therapeutic touch has a calming effect on the nervous system.

These were exactly the results experienced by a recent client who brought her two very young children for a treatment. During the session, Mum also learned a few basic techniques which she continued to apply at home. I am delighted with the report she gave after one week, letting me know that all previous issues with sleep and digestion had cleared for her babies. This is a fantastic result!

Review Child Reflexology

Mothers Review Of Child Reflexology

I have been demonstrating reflexology at national holistic events, on TV,  in workshops and with my clients since the start of my holistic career, with the desire to support people in their quest for improved well-being and to encourage them to take charge of their own self-healing ability.

Discover Your Magic Touch – Authentic Reflexology

‘Discover Your Magic Touch’ my follow up workshop to ‘The Power In Your Hands’ delivered at the Mind Body Spirit festival October 2015 sent a group of participants, including myself, back into a crowded venue floating on a fluffy cloud.

The purpose of this workshop which provides self-treatment well-being tips through hand reflexology is to explore the nature of touch in healing. There is much more to be noticed, sensed and experienced when it comes to healing touch. Bringing our minds into the present moment is so essential to being authentic and open to healing.

The purpose of healing is to bring ourselves into an optimum state of being so as to allow us to achieve/be all that is within our power and capability. It takes a constant practice to keep stress at bay and to deal with the pressures and challenges we are likely to encounter in life. This practice stands to us. That is why I always encourage my reflexology clients to use the self-treatment tips of hand reflexology between treatments.

‘Bringing our minds into the present moment is so essential

to being authentic and open to healing.’

The workshops provide for a deeper practice of this self treatment. This particular workshop had a meditative feel to it from start to finish. I have found it is best to go with the flow of the group of individuals who present for this learning experience, just as it is important to tailor every reflexology treatment to the individual needs of clients.

The three day event of Mind Body Spirit & Yoga festival was once again a great success. There was opportunity for interesting discussions on healing with fellow therapists and also with regards to the future direction of reflexology in Ireland. I had the opportunity to provide treatment to wonderful individuals and some allowed me to learn from their knowledge too as I had some reflexology therapists in their midst.

to the individual needs of clients.’

I heard sounds of South America’s wooden flute, the roar of the Chinese dragon and resounding of great symbols and drums. I always enjoy walking Tony Christies Labyrinth. My house is filling up fast with the stunning crystals from Stone Age.
