Hey Lovelee Mommas! Have you ever considred baby reflexology? One thing we never enjoy seeing is our little babies upset and often in my sessions I have to quickly determine a way to calm a fussy little one.
After dealing with the basics, dirty diapers and feeding time, we then have to dig a little deeper from those tense little tummies to congestion.
One my go to moves that works in most situations is a nice soothing "shhhh" and a light downward stroke between their eyes, from the middlefof the forehead to right above where there nose begins. It works about 95% of the time.
Baby reflexology is a complementary therapy that involves applying pressure to certain points on a baby's feet and hands to stimulate different parts of their body. It is based on the idea that there are reflex points on the feet and hands that correspond to different organs, glands, and other parts of the body.
The pressure applied to these reflex points is believed to help improve circulation, reduce tension, and promote relaxation, which can have a positive effect on a baby's overall health and well-being.
Some of the benefits of baby reflexology that are claimed by proponents of the therapy include improved digestion, relief from teething discomfort, and better sleep. However, it is important to note that there is limited scientific evidence to support these claims.
In baby reflexology, there are a number of reflex points on the feet that are believed to correspond to different parts of the body. Some of the key reflex points that are often targeted in baby reflexology include:
Head and brain: This reflex point is located on the tips of the toes.
Sinuses: This reflex point is located in the center of the toes.
Teeth and gums: This reflex point is located on the pads of the toes.
Chest and lungs: This reflex point is located on the ball of the foot, just below the toes.
Digestive system: This reflex point is located on the arch of the foot, from the ball of the foot to the heel.
Kidneys and bladder: This reflex point is located on the inside edge of the foot, near the arch.
It is important to note that these reflex points are just a general guide, and the specific points that are targeted may vary depending on the individual baby and their needs. A qualified reflexologist will be able to customize their approach based on the baby's age, health status, and other factors.
