Learn New Skills to Support Your Child
Would you like to support your child to feel calmer and more at ease?
These Rainbow Relaxation Workshops are for parents, carers or family members of children who feel anxious. You will learn a relaxation routine based on reflexology that is soothing, calming and grounding for both you and your children.
Particularly suitable for autistic and neurodivergent children, children with additional needs, physical and learning disabilities, and children with high levels of anxiety.
Developed by Lorraine Senior, these workshops are based on her Functional Reflex Therapy (FRT) framework originally designed to support children in school to have a better frame of mind. You can find out more about the history of FRT and its benefits here.
We use rhythm and repetition in the routine to reduce stress, anxiety and tension, improve mood and increase relaxation.
In the workshops you will learn and practice a simple, reflexology-based routine for the hands and/or feet.
You’ll receive handouts and your own starter toolkit to personalise for your child. The toolkit includes what you need for the sessions, and also acts as a communication aid for your child.
As relaxing for the giver as the receiver, these new skills are a valuable wellbeing resource for you to support your whole family.
