Why take this course?

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.

What you will learn?

With the help of specially drawn charts you will learn how to tailor your normal reflexology routines into simpler forms to use with babies, toddlers and children for common childhood illnesses
