Reflexology for Teenagers
One thing seems certain - many of our teenagers are feeling the stress and pressures of modern living. The Office of National Statistics have looked at adolescents and reported that:
* 10% of teenagers are diagnosed with an emotional disorder
* Depression is more likely to occur if high stress levels are present
* The number of teenagers on anti-depressants is increasing
It appears key that children build in coping strategies to help them manage stress. Reflexology can help them sleep better, feel calmer and improve their sense of wellbeing.
If you think your teenager may benefit from some reflexology, reassure them that it is not ticklish, that on the whole it is deeply relaxing and they can feel revitalised afterwards, their body will respond as it needs to.
Reflexology for Children
Reflexology can be a great support for children at all ages and also for specific needs. It can reduce stress and anxiety, relieve tension and help improve mood.
I am a registered Thrive Practitioner. I work in school with children to support their social and emotional development in order for them to engage with learning and their social world. I believe that reflexology can be of benefit to children as they grow and develop.
