How does it work?
The theoretical basis of reflexology lies in stimulating some of the 7000 nerve endings in the feet, which correspond to different organs or parts of the body. Targeting different areas of the foot brings about a benefit to the associated area of the body. Reflexology is a self-regulatory approach meaning that the manipulation of particular reflex zone triggers the body’s own healing mechanism. Children usually receive traditional Foot Reflexology which can be additionally enhanced by Massage Therapy,
What to expect:
Children often have complex and individual needs. As such, their response to the treatment can vary, depending of the nature and length of their condition. Every treatment is different and adjusted to child’s current level of well being. In addition, families are offered as much support and advice as possible, and are being taught reflexology techniques to use between treatments.
Regular sessions allow for the cumulative effects of treatments to be felt. Over time, the child often learns to make the connection between the touch on their feet and feeling calmer and relaxed. It’s not uncommon for children (especially nonverbal ones) to ask for the treatment by putting the hand of the therapist or the parent onto their feet.
The end of treatment happens gradually and the decision involves the parent(s), the therapist and the child.
