Reflexology for all ages...
Is your baby suffering with colic or teething pain? Have you a teenager studying for exams or worried about identity, friendship groups and other pressures? Reflexology is a fabulous tool that can be used to help ease many common concerns and discomforts at all stages of childhood and adolescence.

Reflexology is a wonderfully relaxing therapy that encourages the receiver to totally 'switch off'' and is therefore a very useful and practical way to relieve stress around exam time too.
