Rooting Reflex - Searching, Sucking and Swallowing Reflex

The Rooting Reflex is an instinctual reaction where the baby will try to latch on to an object that’s stroked near the corner of its mouth. It begins as early as 24 weeks into the pregnancy and becomes inhibited by the time the baby is six months old.

Step 1

A woman is using the tip of the Rezzimax Tuner to trace along her cheek, from her ear to her mouth.

  • Tuner: Accessory Clear Tip
  • Intensity: Highest Tolerable Level
  • Pressure: Light
  • Duration: 10 Times

For this step, we'll want to use the accessory clear tip. Set the intensity of the Tuner to the highest level you're able to tolerate. Using a light amount of pressure, use the clear tip to trace from your ear to the corner of your mouth and across your lips. Go ahead and do this ten times, then repeat on the other side of your face.

Step 2

The patient has covered the tip of the Rezzimax Tuner with a disposable glove and placed it on her tongue inside her mouth.

  • Tuner: Accessory Clear Tip, Disposable Glove
  • Intensity: Highest Tolerable Level
  • Pressure: Light
  • Duration: 1 Minute

If you have a disposable glove, slide it over the accessory tip so that it's ready to go into your mouth. Put the Tuner on the lowest level. Open your mouth and lay the tip on your tongue with a light amount of pressure. Leave it here for one minute.
