Reflexology is a popular complementary therapy that can be recieved by anyone of any age. Reflexology is the application of pressure to the reflexes on your feet, hands, ears and face. The theory behind reflexology is that these reflexes correspond to organs, glands and different parts of your body the right. Reflexology helps your body bring homeostasis or balance back, naturally.

Breastfeeding is the normal way to feed and nurture infants, with babies
being breastfed exclusively for 6 months and continuing to breastfeed for 2 years and beyond.
As Australia’s leading authority on breastfeeding, we:
* educate society and support mothers, using up-to-date research findings and the practical experiences of many women
* influence society to acknowledge breastfeeding as normal and important to parenting and the physical and mental health of babies, children and mothers.
When I last has a holiday in Brisbane, I stopped in at the Paddington Clinic for a Massage. Since then I have been on their email newsletter listing and every now and then check out their very nice web site. They have agreed to allow me to use an occassional article of their's (with reference to them of course) in our Newsletters. If you know anyone who lives up that way or if you are taking a holiday north, then make sure you drop in for a treatment. Like us they have services in Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine, Massage and Naturopathy.
Australia’s Post and Antenatal Depression Association (PANDA) has now been rated as the worldwide website leader for mothers with a postnatal mental illness in an independent, international study.
