Amazingly, babies respond more quickly to the effects of foot reflexology, because their energy flow is more easily unblocked and proper balance is restored. Also, their feet, being more sensitive - respond beautifully. Babies more readily accept support, because they don’t analyze.
Because babies feet are much smaller than an adults, all of the reflex points are much closer together, so finger movement is very minimal. Also, babies feet are not fully formed, so the pressure used – should be very gentle and nurturing. Time worked, is much shorter.
Parents can no longer rely on “paracetamol” type medicines and antibiotics as these are only effective in moderate use and can even be detrimental through prolonged use, e.g. antibiotics become less effective over time and may not work effectively when needed in severe cases.
Parents and doctors alike are turning their attention to alternative natural remedies such as reflexology which form a part of a healthier lifestyle as opposed to a quick and temporary fix.
