Press These Points On Your Baby’s Feet To Make Them Stop Crying Immediately!
Reflexology is effective and safe, it is based on the principle that reflex points found on the feet and hands correspond to specific organs, muscles, bones and body systems. It is an old, cultural practice dating back thousands of years to ancient China.
It was developed by Jenny Lee, a Chartered Physiotherapist and qualified reflexologist, following 15 years’ extensive research into the effects of regular Reflexology on Childhood Asthma.
Baby Reflex is a gentle form of reflexology created especially for babies, infants and toddlers from one month to three years. Babies are especially responsive to reflexology.
Reflexology Foot Guide for Babies
Babies are said to be much more responsive to reflexology than full-grown adults, mainly because they are more receptive to physical touch in general.
Reflexology is the application of pressure to certain points on the body, mainly focused on the feet. The above guide shows these body parts, and which area of the baby’s feet that affect them.
1. The tips of the toes correspond to the baby’s head and teeth. This can be especially helpful when babies are teething. By gently applying pressure to these little areas, you’ll be able to soothe her when she’s crying.
2. Applying pressure to the center of a child’s toes can help reduce the severity of a variety of sinus problems ranging from a runny nose to the common cold and other respiratory problems.
3. This area relieves congestion in the chest, making it effective for treating chronic coughs or colds that cause phlegm build ups. In fact, several studies have found reflexology to be very effective at reducing all forms of congestion.
4. The solar plexus is a complex collection of nerves located between the stomach and the lungs. It is hard to narrow down the cause of solar plexus pain due to its location and variety of nerve endings, however it can be treated by performing reflexology near the upper area of the arch of the foot. This is the area right before the arch ends and the foot meets the ground.
5. Performing reflexology on this area of the baby’s foot can help with digestive issues such as bowel obstruction and heartburn.
6. Foot massages can also relieve the baby’s discomfort from constipation. To stimulate the large intestine, try rubbing the lower regions of the sole. This will be especially great for babies who have been a little gassy.
7. If you suspect your baby’s tummy and hips have been bothering her, try applying pressure to this region, making sure to rub lightly.
