HAPPY BABY CLINIC
Babies often have common ailments such as Colic, Reflux and constipation in their first few months. Reflexology and Massage are natural, safe and enjoyable options to help alleviate such ailments. The Happy baby clinic is a one hour session which is tailored to suit your babies need. Whether that ailment is Colic, Reflux, constipation, teething, difficulty in settling or birth trauma, there are massage and reflexology techniques which can help.
A short treatment of 10-20 minutes massage/reflexology can be enough for most babies (depending on age/ailment) which gives plenty of time to teach parent/caregiver the basic reflexology and massage techniques best suited to use with their babies at home. For a baby with colic, reflex etc, one 15 minute treatment may not be enough, but they will need short and regular treatments, maybe every day to alleviate the systems. This is why learning the routines to continue the treatments at home with your baby is ideal. It is of huge benefit to not only your baby, but also a calming and powerful bonding experience for you as a parent also! We use easy to read, colourful charts (which parents can bring home) to explain the routine and practice during the session.
Cost per one hour session of Baby Massage/Reflexology : €50
