Reflexology is a ancient cultural practice originated in China. Currently, this form of alternative medicine appears to be reborn, becoming very popular in the Western world for its potential to treat the symptoms of many physical illnesses.
Because reflexology is one of the most natural and less invasive forms of treatment, this practice is ideal for calming babies. Because they can’t express in words their discomfort or pain, they attract our attention by crying. Reflexology offers an effective way not only to determine what problems the child feels, but also to heal the highlighted problems.
