Lunar Treatments

Each month, near the full moon, children enjoy gentle, healing treatments.

This tradition originates in Japan, where it is common practice for children to receive monthly treatments near the full moon.

When the moon is waxing near full, it exerts an influence not only on the tides of the oceans but also on the ocean within our bodies.

Do you desire to find a holistic way to heal and help your child?

Do you want to break away from the use and side effects of pharmaceutical drugs?

Sally Sherriff, L.Ac. studied in Japan for 6 years and Taiwan for 2 years. She brings to our children, from the traditions of Asian Medicine, the ancient teachings of the cultivation of Health.

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 consist of Shonishin or Tuina massage, moxa, cupping, essential oils, dietary and other recommendations.

Children look forward to this ritual! Parents are relieved to learn what they can do at home!

There is an ancient saying:

Treat Winter diseases in the Summer.”

This means that preventive treatments in earlier seasons,

help us avoid and heal illness in later seasons.

Problems that arise due to weather, diet, emotions, or lifestyle will be avoided or alleviated with Lunar Treatments. Decrease the intensity and frequency of colds or coughs in the Fall or allergies in the Spring with regular preventive monthly treatments!

Lunar Treatments emphasize preventive care.

Once introduced to Traditional Asian Medicine, parents and children understand that the rhythm of caring for ourselves is an ongoing process that continues throughout our lives.
