It gives pupils a chance to relax in a deeper way than perhaps they have ever known, and experience a relationship through positive touch. I am impressed with the way pupils with the most challenging behaviours have responded, and willingly choose to attend the sessions and willingly choose to engage.
What value do you feel relaxation reflexology offers to the school?
Pupils who begin to learn what it means to be calm can take control become happier beings and engage and participate much better in the wider school community.
What input do you require from me as a Reflexology Therapist to value me as a member of the multi disciplinary team and what feedback and to whom do you consider important?
It is very important that education and health professionals combine to support children’s wellbeing and mental health. The feedback we receive from you is shared with parents and strategic partners and links in with our holistic personalised programmes of work and tapers our interventions, to support pupils to do their very best, and realise their own potential.
Do you know of any other schools offering Reflexology Therapy on their timetable? Would you advocate Reflexology Therapy? If so why? If not why?
I am not aware of any, but would absolutely advocate that reflexology has a place on the timetable in every school in the country. Children’s mental health and well being is of paramount importance and children can only truly learn when they are in a comfortable place emotionally
