If you're planning to learn to teach baby and toddler reflexology, it's useful to understand the potential age of babies or toddlers that can safely and enjoyably come to your baby reflexology classes.

The routines and techniques that we include in our online Baby and Toddler Reflexology Instructor course are suitable for everyone, of all ages. However, it is recommended that group sessions can be for up to pre-walkers, as long as you adapt the sessions.

You can do this by splitting age groups:

Age range 1: birth to pre-crawlers
Age range 2: crawlers (treasure baskets can be a good distraction during sessions for crawlers during the routines to encourage them to keep still)

You can hold 1-2-1 sessions for up to preschool age. However, routines can still be beneficial all the way throughout a child's life, regardless of age. However, the older the get, the more ethical it would be to refer to a specially qualified reflexologist for a more in-depth treatment. In our Baby and Toddler Reflexology Instructor course one of our course module videos shows us discussing how the benefits of a routine adapt as children get older. In fact, parents may even use the techniques on themselves!

ASKING PERMISSION

Also, as silly as it may sound, make sure you encourage the parents to ask their little ones if they want to have reflexology, even from a young age. This will help them get into a good habit for when they are older. And, after all, you wouldn’t like someone to massage you without your permission, would you?!

In summary, there is a fairly wide age range that baby and toddler reflexology can appeal to, meaning that teaching baby and toddler reflexology presents many opportunities and a healthy potential audience.
