Tots to Teens Reflexology

A gentle therapy for all ages...


Is your baby teething or suffering with colic?

Perhaps you have a teenager who is making life challenging for everyone in the household?

Reflexology is a gentle holistic therapy that encourages deep relaxation and may help a range of health issues.

Treatment sessions can be modified to suit EVERYONE - whatever their age!

Reflexology is a gentle and calming hands-on therapy that can be a wonderful way to calm your little one.

Whenever we are touched, powerful physiological changes take place within the body and this affects two key brain chemicals in the following way:

  • Oxytocin, known as the 'love' or 'bonding' hormone, is released and this creates a sense of calm and reduces feelings of fear.

  • Cortisol, produced as a reaction to stress, is naturally suppressed.

So you can see why cuddling your baby has a natural soothing effect!

Feelings of calmness can be enhanced when targeted Baby Reflexology techniques are applied to little feet!

Babies love having their feet stroked and a short twenty minute Baby Reflexology session may help ease some common discomforts of infancy including:

  • Teething
  • Colic
  • Constipation
  • Irritability

Treatments may also:

  • Help your baby settle after a traumatic delivery
  • Encourage a good sleeping pattern
  • Enhance your baby's immune system

During a Baby Reflexology session, you’ll also be shown some simple techniques that you can use at home, to help your little one settle.


The teenage years can be anything but plain sailing...

  • Hormone surges occur, as the body grows and matures, leading to mood swings - which disrupts those experiencing them, and those who live with them!

  • Girls will start to menstruate and may experience irregular and painful periods, until their cycle becomes established.

Add in the lure of 24 hour technology, anxiety over ‘fitting in’, emerging relationship issues and lack of sleep and you'll see why this age group have plenty to deal with!

But wouldn't it be great to help them cope better during these difficult years?

  • Reflexology encourages deep relaxation, which may help to ‘dampen down’ Cortisol production, reduce stress and balance hormones naturally.

  • Treatment sessions can be especially beneficial around exam time and will provide a crucial break from study.

Reflexology has also been shown to:
  • Encourage a better sleep pattern
  • Lift low mood
  • Reduce symptoms of stress
  • Enhance an overall sense of wellbeing
