The Peace Point - finding peace by Sue Ricks

Written: 30th Jun 2016

Sometimes the simplest things are the best!  One of the simplest things in that I love to do in my Gentle Touch Reflexology treatments is the Peace Point.  The Peace Point is one of my very favourite reflex locations and it's something that I came across about 15 years ago when I started working more increasingly with babies and children.

It is a point which seems to be incredibly special for some babies, children and adults too.

Everything about the Gentle Touch of Reflexology for babies and children is approached very delicately, gently and sensitively and the Peace Point it is part of that too. When we take our time and work very sensitively we can achieve fabulous results for those we connect with.

One of the neo natal critical care nurses who I work with in a NICU unit says that is one of her favourite reflex areas too. She fell in love with this particular piont on her course with me and is certain that it can be one of the most powerful points that she uses. Personally I have witnessed numerous occasions where this makes a huge difference.

It's all about peace!

The peace point is a lovely delicate area that is at the bottom of the heart reflex. "From the bottom of my heart" the heart is the centre of love and it is fed by loving vibrations.  Adult sometimes report a very subtle and 'nice' feeling when this point is very gently, lovingly and peacefully held.  The trick is to be at peace yourself before ever touching this area . Truly at peace!

Simply bring yourself to a calm, relaxed and peaceful state and offer up just your thumbs (from plantar aspect) or middle fingers (from dorsal aspect). Make the lightest of connections to this point only touching with either thumbs or middle fingers.

 

Offering this simplest and most beautiful of touches can be done at any time when doing reflexology for a fractious or crying baby or any unhappy child / person.

Incorporating this into your treatment can be a very special time.

I believe it’s essential to offer the best of ourselves when touching anyone, especially a child.  Accessing our own peace before we touch the peace point is a win win situation and vibration. Offering the same love and support to babies and children is one of the key elements of the Peace Point.  We (as practitioners) access our own peace before we begin to even touch this point (or any point in fact) so being at peace in ourselves is beautiful and offers that opportunity for the child to be more at peace as well.  In essence we go first! Before we touch the area, we find our own peace and so when we touch the Peace Point, we are sitting gently in that quiet vibration which is all about love, acceptance and peace.

We therefore are more able to make that offering available for the child to pick up.

I personally love the Peace Point and would highly recommend it to anyone.... As long as you know how to access your own peaceful state. If that’s not possible on a particular occasion then it's much more healthy for all concerned if you give it a miss! 

The Peace Point is one of the reflex areas talked about in my book, "The Gentle Touch of Reflexology for Babies and Children, where you can see more information, charts and images too.

With Love
