The Children’s Reflexology Programme is a simple course of fun, interactive sessions, spread over several weeks. Run by Rebecca McCourquodale, in Cheltenham, it empowers parents and carers to be able to offer their children a non-invasive complementary therapy at home at any time of the day or night, from someone they love and feel safe with. The course shows you how to treat specific conditions of childhood and includes a series of handouts in the form of mini booklets that can be used by a parent or carer. A carefully designed series of rhymes, pictures and stories is used to engage the child and to help you to learn and remember the reflexology.
All this empowers you to do something positive to help your child. It also helps your child by strengthening the bond they already feel for you and strengthening their belief in you. This gentle therapy offers families a valuable relief from some of the worst feelings a parent can experience, powerlessness and helplessness!
Reflexology is a powerful but gentle therapy which is particularly beneficial with children and can be a great help in times of distress and with common childhood illnesses such as constipation, teething, colic and so on. Unfortunately it is not always practical to visit a reflexologist, especially in the middle of the night! Also, a strange person in a strange place might not be the most helpful thing in these situations, which are often very emotionally charged, and might even be frightening for some children. Children who are unwell, or just distressed or upset for some reason, want to stay close to the people and places they know and love.
The Children’s Reflexology Programme solves all these problems by making it possible for you to give reflexology treatments yourself, whenever and wherever you want. You can start helping with everything from tantrums to teething, giving you precious time to relax and take a step back so you can decide what to do next – a visit to a reflexologist, a trip to the doctor, some more of your own treatments or perhaps even just a cuddle is all that will be needed.
The beauty of The Children’s Reflexology Programme is that these treatments can be given at any time and in any place. Your child doesn’t have to be ill to give them any of the treatments. If your child suffers with constipation give them the treatment for it every day – they cannot have too much reflexology! You can use the treatments as a way of controlling the condition and keeping your child calm, relaxed, happy and well.
The Children’s Reflexology Programme offers parents and carers the opportunity to learn enough reflexology to treat their family without having to spend thousands of pounds becoming qualified. It is a special medicine cabinet for all your family that is completely non-invasive, that no-one can overdose on, that will bring you all together with love and respect through touch and bonding and most importantly empowers both parent/carer and child. Win, win all round!
The Children’s Reflexology Programme is unique. It has been specially created to engage children through the use of animals, rhymes and story. It is a fun way of gathering together with friends, NCT groups and other parents and carers and spending time together. All the parents who have already attended a course have had positive results after their first class. Reflexology is a powerful tool and The Children’s Reflexology Programme makes it available to you, now.
