See that sweet little guy? This week he was one of my clients as I specialize in maternity and infant/child reflexology.
I couldn't wait to come home and tell you all about him because "Mr Smiley" was a total picture perfect client. If I was to do a treatment on an infant who just let me do the treatment, it takes about 10 - 15 minutes. Usually, however, infant clients take double that. This is normal and totally understandable. I am a stranger, they might be hungry, the treatment can work really fast so we might need a diaper change, they have short attention spans, the ideal time to do the treatment is during active alert and we can't always be sure when that will be - the list goes on! Let's just say that I book an hour for an infant treatment, and even then know that I might have to go over.
So why does all this matter? Because the adorable little man I had the pleasure of treating this week is 10 months old so he is happy to sit during the treatment. He decided my in home treatment supply bag and some of it's contents were the most fascinating things of all time and he happily played with it while I did his treatment. 10 minutes, no fuss, no concerns, all smiles :)
That's a good way to start your work day!! Could it be that he's already comfortable with me having heard my voice in-utero as I worked on his mom to help her prepare for a happy birth? Could it be that him and mom attended my infant massage class and because she's practiced he's used to healthy touch? Maybe. My guess is that his mom is pretty awesome and he is a happy, content baby. Thank you Baby M and Mama K for being the great people you are!
