This Meetup group is for all moms to be, parents/ grandparents and guardians that would like to learn a set of gentle reflexology techniques to assist the well being of their babies in a natural way. These natural, simple, safe and enjoyable techniques were developed for increasing the natural loving bond between parent and child and can be used as a part of a daily routine to help soothe and ease common ailments and discomforts on Babies and Toddlers.
Reflexology is a fantastic natural option for calming and nurturing babies and children, boosting their immune system and supporting the growing body.
What is Reflexology? Reflexology is a complementary, holistic therapy based on the principle that all areas of the body are reflected in the hands and the feet. Exerting varying pressures on the specific areas of the hands and feet can encourage specific and identified parts of the body to respond. Reflexologists can detect subtle changes and imbalances in the body by examining and working on the feet. Working on the reflexes helps to improve circulation, induce relaxation and enable homeostasis (the body’s natural ability to find equilibrium), boosting the immune system and maintaining health by bringing balance to the whole system.
Baby Reflexology is an adapted version of adult reflexology created especially for babies, infants and toddlers, from one month to three years.
