Babies and young children can also have symptoms. Unfortunately, sometimes from birth. Just think of crying babies or babies with asthmatic symptoms, stomach and intestinal problems or (cow's milk) allergies. Some children have a very sensitive system. They react strongly to all kinds of stimuli from the environment (sounds, colours, certain foods or emotions such as tension and sadness). The body can then become unbalanced.
ADHD/ADD, dyslexia, autism spectrum disorder and highly sensitive children, etc. are good examples of this.
Research has shown that children literally feel better about themselves through foot reflexology. To let these children relax, foot reflexology is very healing and soothing. Children often experience a treatment as very pleasant.
Examples of symptoms in which foot reflexology can be used in children:
  • Dyslexia
  • Eating problems
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Headache
  • High sensitivity
  • Restless behavior
  • Earache, walking and glue ear
  • Reflux (in babies)
  • Sleep problems
  • 'Vague' abdominal, stomach complaints
  • Sadness, or anger
  • Reduced resistance
  • Decreased self-confidence
Note: For children, the treatment lasts shorter and is less intensive than for adolescents/(young) adults
