Child Reflexology The world for children and teenagers is not as carefree as adults might imagine. Growing up has many thrills and happiness; however there are many growing pains too. The physiological, emotional and physical turmoil we usually associate with adulthood can equally affect children through the years of growth.
Children grow up very quickly in this day and age, facing issues and decisions both at home and school that would be stressful for even the most balanced adult.
Reflexology can be helpful for both the physical ailments and psychological stresses that children have to deal with. Providing reflexology treatments for your children can give them the opportunity to feel calm, happy and balanced. Through the medium of reflexology a trust relationship can be built between therapist and child, giving them the opportunity to communicate how they feel and a chance to deal with their stresses and strains. Reflexology can also help the child understand their body, physically and mentally with the therapists’ guidance.
The treatment is carried out as a usual reflexology treatment would be carried out, however it may take a little less time depending on the age of the child. Through the reflexology treatment physical ailments can be recognised and relaxation can be enhanced. Through using the relaxation techniques and putting the child at ease, an understanding and recognition of psychological issues can be identified. The therapist will also be assessing lifestyle and diet to try and aid in the presenting problems, also working with the parents to help them understand the issues and to help their children.
Hannah, the child specialist, has been working with children for many years; initially through the medium of drama, which helps to build confidence in children. Once she trained as a reflexologist, she started to work with children helping a range of problems from M.E to behavioural problems. Hannah incorporates her drama training into the treatments if required, this helps to put the child at ease and can also help to understand any psychological stresses.
N.B All children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to the treatments.
