Much like adults, little people can benefit from seeing a naturopath for a range of conditions.
Young children are extremely vital and have the capacity to recover very quickly and easily. Even very young children are very much in tune with their own healing and quite willing to make small changes to help them feel better.
Working collaboratively with both parent and child is profoundly beneficial to the whole process, as you really are the expert when it comes to your child's unique needs.
Adolescents often really benefit from direction and calm, clear education when it comes to diet and nutrition.
Children young and adolescent really do love being included.
Children & Flower Essence Therapy
Children often respond exceptionally well to flower essence therapy for emotional health and wellness. They really love to collaborate in the creation of their own flower essence in their session, while mum or dad look on. They are very intuitive and often take the lead with much self reflection and connection with what is going on for them in their world. Regularly becoming the healer themselves and choosing essences for mum, dad and other family members. Such a beautiful process to be able to facilitate!
Overall, balance and common sense is an integral part of my practice and working in conjunction with other professionals when necessary is essential.
The wonderful thing about children is their ability to heal so well.
