How Bodywork Helps Gas, Reflux, & Colic

Gas bubbles can accumulate in an infant because their gut is digesting food for the first time and needs to contract and relax. Stimulation helps the gas move to its final destination.

Babies have an undeveloped epiglottis. Air intake, too much milk/formula, or even pressure build up from the abdomen can cause reflux. This can manifest as vomit or discomfort while laying flat.

Colic comes in many forms however when the abdomen is uncomfortable or a child has reflux the increased input can put them over the edge and create a very uncomfortable baby.
