Baby Reflexology Classes
Baby Reflexology is a series of specially adapted reflexology techniques originally developed for increasing bonding between parents and babies. Further development of the techniques has enabled parents to also help ease and relieve many normal baby discomforts in their own child.
Baby Reflex is a safe, drug-free and non-invasive natural therapy. It can be used from 4 weeks of age, some parents like to start after their child’s 6-week check, this is a personal choice.
Baby Reflex is run through a series of 4 weekly classes, where we will teach you the Baby Reflex techniques for you to use on your own child.
Each week is themed and the techniques have been simplified, making it easier for you to learn, remember, and use on your baby.
Some Benefits to Reflexology Classes include:-
1. Promotes bonding and attachment between parent and baby.
2. Fantastic for comforting mums and babies after a traumatic birth.
3. By teaching yet effective reflexology techniques to parents to use on their babies. we are empowering those parents with a new tool that they can use for their baby’s health and well-being.
4. Baby reflexology classes are a supportive and safe environment for mum’s/dad’s to share not only their joy but also their fears of parenthood and all the challenges that come with it.
5. Provides a social outlet for parents to meet other parents and make new friends in your area.
6. Gain valuable advice from other parents in the class about all things relating to children and parenting.
As a IAIM Certified Infant Massage Instructor, I run a 5-week course with Lousie Kane Buckley from www.loulanatural.com who continues after the massage with wonderful topics on Family Health https://loulanatural.com/natural-family-health-classes-with-baby-massage . Each week we will focus on a new body part, building up to massaging the whole body by week 4. Towards the end of the course, we will also learn some simple yoga-inspired stretching exercises for your baby and how to do a short whole body massage routine for when you are short of time. It doesn’t matter at all if your baby cries, needs feeding, is asleep or needs a nappy change during the class – all these things happen all the time, and are just part of having a new baby! Each week we recap everything we have done the previous weeks, so you will always have a chance to catch up on anything you have missed
The benefits of baby massage are well researched, and include:
Stimulation (of all the big systems: circulation, digestion, respiration, immune, skin, language, nervous)
Relaxation (releases stress, produces calming hormones, helps to regulate sleep patterns)
Relief (sinuses, growing pains, teething, colic, constipation, excess mucous)
Interaction (bonding, communication, eye contact, one to one activity). It can be performed by the baby’s parents or grandparents or anyone involved in the care of the baby.
Classes are most suitable for babies from eight weeks to six months old, with the optimum age for starting to learn it being from twelve to eighteen weeks (i.e. before the babies are on the move!).

I joined one of Tracy’s Baby
Massage courses with my son CJ. I cannot recommend Tracy enough. Not alone did
we as a group of mums learn about massaging our babies but each session was
very informative and friendly. I learned so much during the course and met some
lovely mums along the way! Karen xxx
