Description

Mouse finds a new house and calls upon her woodland friends to help her to make it a cosy home, but will it be ready in time for winter?

Combining reflexology with delightfully engaging rhymes and illustrations, this book features easy-to-follow diagrams and instructions for giving basic reflexology to a child during a bedtime (or anytime) story.

This unique book, written by a specialist maternity reflexologist, uses this non-invasive complementary therapy to help strengthen the bonding process between parent (or carer) and child and offers a gentle remedy for problems such as sleep difficulties, anxiety and mild pain. No prior reflexology knowledge is required.

Reviews

'I loved this delightful book, the story, characters and illustrations are very engaging. I am sure that small children will thoroughly enjoy it. The reflexology that accompanies the story offers a unique way for parents and children to share the therapy together. I particularly enjoyed the relationship between the characters and the various areas of the foot. All children love a good story and to have the addition of a caring touch will make it irresistible I'm sure.'

'What a fantastic idea to link a reflexology treatment to children's story time. I love the idea of engaging the child whilst offering a therapeutic treatment, allowing for a very bonding yet enjoyable experience for both the giver and the receiver.'
-

'It was with great joy that I read this delightful book. It encapsulates those reflex points that are of most benefit to young children in the most beautifully creative way...I am sure that those parents and children who are fortunate enough to experience this book will derive enormous pleasure and benefit from it.'

'This is a sweet, small book for parents that utilises the power of a short story to provide a simple reflexology treatment for children, whilst they are occupied with the story... It is a lovely rhyming story with delightful illustrations that bring the story to life... Carrying out the treatment may empower parents or carers to relax the child at times when they may feel helpless. It may also help build the bond between child and parent. This is a book that could be read to your own children, recommended to your clients for their children, or given as a
present to new mums you have seen through their pregnancies.'
- Tracey Smith, Reflexology and Research Support Manager

'This is a children's reflexology book for 'bedtime or anytime' and is a delightful way to introduce reflexology to children. The short story is based around a group of animal characters... The book is well illustrated and explains simple techniques to work the reflex areas. The text is in rhymes. The book could be used by parents and practitioners alike who want to give a short reflexology treatment to a child.'
