Lunar Treatments

Child and moon

A holistic way to heal and help your child.

Each month, children enjoy gentle healing treatments. This ancient practice originates in Japan, where children traditionally receive monthly treatments near the full moon. When the moon is full, it exerts an influence not only on the ocean tides but also on the ocean within our bodies.

Children who come in for regular Lunar Treatments each month, at the Full Moon, don’t get sick as often as their peers, and when they do get sick, they recover quickly.

Regular, monthly Lunar Treatments help your child in many ways:
*Balance your child’s developing meridian, organ and endocrine systems
*Strengthen their whole constitution
*Enhance the immune system – so your child gets well and stays well
*Nourish their mind & spirit – for depression, anxiety and hyperactivity
*Fortify digestion, rebuild the digestive fire & regulate bowel movement
*Enable deep peaceful sleep

Lunar treatments are painless, gentle and can include Shonishin, Tuina massage, moxa, cupping, essential oils, nutrition, herbal medicine and other recommendations. Children look forward to this nurturing care and parents learn home care methods to support their child’s health!

Lunar Treatments emphasize preventive care. There is an ancient saying: Treat Winter diseases in the summer.  Preventive treatments in earlier seasons help us avoid and heal illness in later seasons. Problems that arise due to weather, diet, emotions, or lifestyle can be avoided and alleviated with monthly holistic care. Decrease the intensity and frequency of colds or coughs in the Fall or allergies in the Spring with regular preventive monthly treatments!

A Check-Up for Success 

Bringing your child in to see Dr. Sally when they’re sick, for allergic reactions, ear infections or labored breathing is only one type of visit.  Preventive visits are a chance to raise questions and concerns about your child’s development, behavior, diet, sleeping, toilet training, social behaviors, attention and learning issues. Having regular Lunar visits is key to preventive care.

A Healthy Happy Future

Children learn that the rhythm of caring for themselves is an ongoing life process leading to a healthier, happier life – the ultimate goal!
