Once your baby is born, reflexology can help to encourage maternal bonding, as well as to relax your baby and at Sole Touch, we also provide baby reflexology sessions. Babies respond well to foot reflexology, as their skin and bones are very soft, so this technique works well in calming them and in alleviating particular conditions.
Using reflexology, your baby is often instantly soothed and it can aid with tummy pains or constipation, as well as with chronic conditions like eczema and reflux. Sessions are normally between five to ten minutes, depending on what your baby will tolerate.
Baby reflexology can help with:
- Reflux and colic
- Upset tummies and constipation
- Stuffy noses and colds
- Sticky eyes, coughs and chest problems
- Boosting immune systems
