Reflexology involves application of pressure to specific areas on the feet, hands and ears. This alternative medicine practice is based on reflex zones correlating to certain glands, organs and other areas of the body. Reflexology for babies can help with tummy troubles such as constipation, or to soothe crankiness. Reflexology can also gently correct misalignment from instrumental delivery (vacuum or forceps), and dissipate the stress the delivery caused. Certain pressure points may even relieve nasal congestion during a baby’s illness.
