What is baby Reflex?
Baby Reflex is a gentle form of reflexology created especially for babies from one month of age. it is a natural and noninvasive therapy and requires no creams, lotions or oils and there is no need to undress the baby before the treatment. Babies love being touched and cuddled. Gentle, loving touch helps them to feel safe, secure and part of the family. Most babies enjoy their feet being stroked and will soon learn when to offer their feet for this enjoyable bonding treatment.
By taking a baby reflex course it provides parents with the opportunity to learn gentle techniques which they can then use on their own baby at home. The Baby Reflex techniques were developed especially to help increase bonding between parents and babies. Further development of the techniques has enabled parents to also be to help their babies in the following ways:
I decided to study the Baby Reflex techniques whilst I was pregnant with my son, as what worried me more than anything about the prospect of becoming a new mum was wondering whether or not I would be able to bond with my baby. I wanted a tool to help me build that bond and enable me to help and support my baby when he was having a tough day. I used the Baby Reflex techniques throughout my little boys infancy and found them to be a tremendous help and support all his good days and bad days. He grew to love his Baby Reflex treatments and would happily offer his feet up to me whilst laid on my lap.
I am now one of Baby Reflex's registered practitioners, which means I am fully qualified to teach these techniques to parents and other caregivers. I am also CRB checked and listed on Baby Reflex's website under their registered practitioners list www.babyreflex.co.uk
How is Baby Reflex taught?
Baby Reflex is taught to parents in 3 separate weekly workshops, lasting around 1hour. Each workshop has its own theme., and the classes are fully interactive, so you can learn and bond with your baby at the same time.
I offer both one to one sessions in the comfort of your own home, or group sessions from the Dronfield Yoga and Wellbeing studio, and the Silverweb holistic centre in Clay Cross, Chesterfield. I am also happy to offer private group bookings, if a group of parents would prefer to learn in this way. At the end of each workshop I provide with a workshop manual containing all the reflexoogy moves you have learnt and all the information from the workshop
