Baby Reflex Workshops normally take place at your home, where you and your baby feel most comfortable. There are three sessions once per week (3 weeks in total) and each session lasts 1 hour. Sessions can be arranged at the times when you and your baby can comfortably attend.
Price: £15 per session
Baby Reflex Taster Session lasts only 10 minutes which is more than enough for you to learn one small part of the Baby Reflex technique and safely use it on your baby.
Baby Reflex Talk can be organized for groups of interested people in schools, nurseries, etc. You will find out more about Baby Reflex, the research behind it and how it works.
Baby Reflex is a gentle reflexology technique, adapted for babies from 1 month onwards. It is taught to parents who can then use it on their own baby. Baby Reflex was developed by Jenny Lee, a chartered physiotherapist and reflexologist, following up a 15 years research on childhood asthma.
What does it do and how does it work?
Babies need a loving touch and with Baby Reflex you will be able to calm your baby, help it sleep and soothe the usual baby pains (colics, teething, reflux, etc.) in a very natural way. Babies are very sensitive and effects of the reflexology can in many cases be seen almost immediately. Baby Reflex can be performed anywhere and at any time, whether you stand in a queue, travel on bus/train or relax on a bench in park. Baby Reflex also helps strenghten the loving bond between a parent and the baby.
What does a session look like?
Baby Reflex sessions are very pleasant and fun. We teach parents simple techniques for calming the baby, soothing digestive and other problems, and to boost their immune system in three weekly sessions, each lasting an hour. We provide the material and make sure that you are confident in applying the Baby Reflex to your baby. We also give you mini charts that you can carry around and remind yourself of the reflexes and technique used.
Where do the Baby Reflex sessions take place and who can attend?
Baby Reflex sessions usually take place at your home, where you and your baby feel most comfortable. We can also arrange group sessions in baby-safe venues, like nurseries, maternity wards, etc. As babies normally turn your life upside down and you find less and less time for socialising, you could also do a Baby Reflex 'party' and invite other mums and/or dads to join the sessions at your home.
Baby Reflex is taught to baby's parents and/or legal guardians, and has proven exceptionally good for very young mums, first-time dads, and stressed parents. Pregnant women are encouraged to join as well - so why not have a baby shower which includes Baby Reflex taster sessions or a talk. We can also arrange talks in nurseries, schools and other places.
Before giving your baby the Baby Reflex treatment please make sure that you check for contra-indications.
If the baby has been vaccinated wait for 48 hours before you try Baby Reflex.
Always seek medical advice before you treat your baby with Baby Reflex if the baby is pale and listless, has a fever, is breathles (especially when drinking), has a rash and temperature rise (especially if it has a stiff neck), has fits, starts vomitting suddenly (if it is unusual for your child), has trembling limbs, cries in pain when touched or picked up, has any kind of head injury.
Can Baby Reflex be used on toddlers?
Toddlers hardly ever sit still long enough for you to manage the full Baby Reflex treatment. You can then try the Toddler Reflex technique, which is taught in the same way as Baby Reflex. Please check out our Toddler Reflex page.
