Reflexology is a safe, non-invasive treatment free from medication and some of the issues that inspire parents to consider reflexology for their children tend to be around digestion, mood fluctuations, sleep and nocturnal enuresis (bed-wetting).

More and more children are coming to me for reflexology recently. Children’s feet are
so open to healing that after a course of treatments there are noticeable improvements. To see real improvements, its advised to commit to a course of six
treatments once a week on the same day or close to it. It gives time for the child to integrate the healing process within their body’s systems and it will have a stronger impact all round.

Nocturnal enuresis is an interesting example to look at as this can be a stressful issue for those involved and understanding the endocrine system of the body might help with finding a solution.

The endocrine system can be somewhat mysterious but once you start looking at it you realise you know more than you thought. Its known as the ‘chemical system’ of the body and its made up of a complex network of glands (pituitary, thyroid, adrenal, pancreas to name but a few) that secrete hormones into the bloodstream – effectively sending chemical messages all over the body. If one of the main glands is a little off then hormone secretion will be disrupted and the whole body is thrown off balance.

Most children who wet the bed at night are deep sleepers and may have relatively low levels of anti-diuretic hormone (ADH) at night. This hormone is produced by the hypothalamus and stored in the pituitary gland until its needed. Both of these glands are principal endocrine system glands found in the brain and they have corresponding reflex points on the feet which I apply pressure to during a reflexology treatment. This is done in an effort to support the body to send the right chemical message at the right time and it may help the situation.

Reflexology is an option to consider in addressing some issues for children, especially pre-puberty. It stimulates the nerve endings in the feet and this has a subsidiary effect on the chemical (or hormonal) energy bringing the body back into balance mentally and physically.
