Whenever I go to see my clients for reflexology, their children will often watch with interest and wonder what is happening. They soon realise that this is something that mum or dad really looks forward to and so they want to try it too. This is how I started working with children from 10 months – 12 years old, giving then a 5 minute taster. Soon their eyes glaze over and you see them relax instantly.
Many parents will seek out complementary therapies for their children, and reflexology is particularly helpful as it is very gentle, noninvasive and very relaxing.
Small children are often intrigued that the feet can relate to points on the body, and just love their feet being massaged. Children also have tight shoulders or sore feet, but unlike us they just get on with it and might never mention it.
I usually offer all my clients’ children a 10 minute taster, after that 20-30 minute sessions can be booked.
