Sleep Issues

Over the years, I’ve been asked many times, “Why is my child not sleeping?” This means that Mom and Dad aren’t sleeping well either!

Sometimes it’s digestive sensitivities that keep children up or life’s stresses, but other times it can be their constitution. Perhaps they are hot at night with sweating that interferes with deep sleep. Dr. Sally offers gentle treatments to help the whole family sleep deeply.

A few ways that we can help:
*A gentle foot massage with sesame oil before bed can soothe their whole body, mind and spirit.
*Having a bedtime routine, at the same time every night helps the nervous system to wind down for sleep.
*In-depth look at the diet can sometimes reveal a deficiency, such as magnesium or a food sensitivity.
*Testing and treating for food and chemical sensitivities.
*Individualized herbal formulas designed for your constitution.
*Therapeutic Tuina Massage and Shonishin treatments
