(The children sometimes call it Rainbow Reflex Therapy!)
As a school based on Values Education, our approach is to work holistically with pupils, considering the whole child. At times, we all need a little extra help to support our wellbeing and at Ledbury Primary School we are now offering Functional Reflex Therapy (FRT).
The FRT concept was developed by Lorraine Senior, a Reflexologist and qualified teacher, working for over 20 years in both mainstream and special educational needs environments supporting pupils and families.
The primary intention of the positive touch therapy is to encourage relaxation ‘in the moment’ where regular sessions may:-
. Reduce stress and anxiety
. Relieve tension
. Help improve mood
. Encourage social interaction
. Generally support individual wellbeing to prepare for ongoing learning.
The FRT techniques are drawn from Reflexology to deliver a short repetitive rainbow routine while sitting in a reclining chair, purely for the aid of relaxation. The trained Reflexologist, Sara Valve, will deliver the flowing, linking moves using her hands, fingers and thumbs to specific reflex points and areas on the feet and lower leg or hand and forearms.
Sara also offers the children self-help techniques for them to use on their hands. This can prove very beneficial to the individuals in between FRT sessions, as they gain more understanding their own bodies and tools to aid their wellbeing.
