What is baby reflexology?

Baby and toddler reflexology can be used from birth and on into the Early Years. We find that most parents attend classes with their babies from around 4/5 weeks up until the babies are wriggling/ crawling away (around 7-10 months).

Although the techniques can be used with older babies and toddlers the above is usually typical of a baby reflexology class or session. Some instructors may choose to teach some of the routines to toddlers also.

Our aim

To provide practitioners with the knowledge and teaching ability to safely and effectively deliver baby yoga sessions and courses in a variety of settings to various individuals and groups.

Once you have qualified as a baby and toddler reflexology instructor you will be able to run session with groups of parents and their babies/ toddlers.
