This is a one-day workshop. All Reflexologists know stimulation of reflex points has a significant effect on the nervous system, promoting relaxation and helping to restore its balance. Reflexology also has a calming influence on the internal organs and muscle functions. This course will give you the tools and confidence to work with babies and children and the knowledge of how to work with specific childhood illnesses and issues.
Why take this class?
Because babies’ feet and bodies are much smaller than an adult some reflex points are accessed and worked differently on a baby. Also, the length of time worked on a baby will differ from an adult.
