What is Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)?
ADD is a neurological disorder that causes a range of behavior problems such as difficulty attending to instruction, focusing on schoolwork, keeping up with assignments, following instructions, completing tasks and social interaction.
Children with ADD and Reflexology
It’s hard to do a reflexology session on a five-year-old, let along working on his feet when they are upside down. El started to come for a reflexology service in March 2016. His parents were concerned with his lack of ability to focus in school and be comfortable in social settings. They thought that Reflexology would help him to keep him calm and focused.
For five-year children, I have to work quickly on their feet. I am lucky I can reflex all of those points in a five-minutes reflexology session because they can’t lie down long enough for me to focus on key points of the feet, central nervous system, head, brain, spinal cord, stomach, and digestive tract.

El at 10 years old
El is now 10 years old learned to be patient with his reflexology sessions. I am not saying he loves them, but he found that they do help him.. I am able to work on his feet for fifteen minutes instead of five minutes when he first began. This tells me that his body maturing and his central nervous system is becoming calmer, and his body can relax long enough for a healing session.
I am pleased to learn that El is doing well in school. He is coping and interacting better with other children, and his attention span is improving.
