How Does It Work?
Wellness consultation for children include a 60 minute, highly personalized consultation addressing your child and family’s health and wellness goals. Visits can take place in the home or office setting. Topics such as nutrition, sleep, exercise, stress management, developmental milestones and expectations, behavioral challenges will be explored collaboratively. These visits are intended for families looking for a holistic approach that is attuned to their individual needs. We may explore safe and effective natural therapies that could complement and enhance your child’s wellness with a less invasive approach.
Who Is It For?
Birth – 3yrs
Nurturing and wellness visits for infants are designed to uniquely support families through the magical period of infancy and early toddler development. These visits include a 60 minute, highly personalized consultation and are designed to educate families on infant safety, nutrition, development and bonding, and to provide a nurturing space for families to ask questions and explore challenges.
What to Expect
For children’s visits-
Please feel free to bring a comfort item- favorite toy, blanket, book, etc. Oftentimes sessions will start with play and relationship building with the child. During this time, I observe movement patterns, sensory needs and ways of acquiring them, overall status of the child’s nervous system on that day. As the child becomes more comfortable, we work towards hands-on somatic work, either on the treatment table or floor, depending on the child’s preference. Sessions are guided by the child and their nervous system. We are all dynamic so each and every session may provide a different experience.
We may layer in practices with movement, breath, sensory and energetic exercises for home and school.
I may encourage a parent -only session to discuss concerns, challenges, and questions. Children that are struggling are oftentimes very aware of their struggles and feel ashamed. I work to provide a safe environment for children to be themselves, regardless of their struggles. Maintaining a positive relationship with safe adults is an essential aspect to children’s wellbeing.
