Techniques used

It is essential to use a level of touch which is appropriate and acceptable to babies (neo nates) who are in a delicate, fragile or life challenging situation.

Gentle Touch™ Reflexology is a perfect technique to use and specially trained practitioners are now working to provide techniques and information in the neonatal units. Specially trained neonatal nurses have been receiving training in the use of Gentle Touch™ Reflexology specially adapted for NICU nurses.
