Are you a sleep deprived parent? Do you have a newborn and would like to help your child have a healthy relationship with sleep? Do you have an active toddler or older child who finds it hard to slow down to rest, struggles with nightmares or is simply out of sync with their natural day-night rhythm? Or perhaps after settling your child for sleep, you find it difficult to get back to sleep?
There is a mountain of literature about various sleep training techniques for children. Unfortunately, your child has not read the book and sometimes they just don’t respond or the training works for just a short time. It’s often a case of trial and error until you find the technique that resonates with both you and your child.
This seminar focuses on simple, natural techniques to help prepare your child for sleep, to sleep peacefully and support them in the long-term. All techniques can be used in conjunction with any method for settling and re-settling you may currently be doing. In this seminar you will learn how to:
- understand the blocks to your child’s quality of sleep
- balance your child’s energy system (Traditional Chinese Medicine meridians and yogic Chakras) through acupressure, massage, essential oils, flower essences and crystals and nutrition
- reset your child’s natural circadian rhythm
- support your child to sleep separately from you or peacefully with you, and
- relax and be at your best!
You don’t have to resign yourself to poor quality sleep for you or your child(ren).

Thank you so much for the advice! I put my hands on her feet during her bath and when I nursed her, and I massaged them when I put her lotion on. She didn’t mind that at all… I think she kind of liked it. She didn’t let me out my hands on her forehead and base of her skull for too long, but hopefully she will get used to it. She’s in bed asleep now… I’ll let you know how it goes. Hopefully we will see some changes soon. It’s been such a struggle getting her to sleep. I’ve tried co-sleeping with her, and that helped when she was younger because she still nursed at night. Thanks for the information and help. I’m so glad I came across your site today!(L.J Kansas, USA)Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! The first night I followed your advice, she slept until 530am. I brought her to bed with me and she slept until 7. I saw her wake up at 330 on our video monitor. She made a tiny noise but just laid there rubbing her hair and went back to sleep! Last night (my 2nd night following your advice), she slept through the night until 630, but stayed in her crib a little longer being sleepy. She kept lifting her head up then laying back down for a bit. I am so grateful for your help and that it seems to be working for us! I will update you next week and let you know how she’s doing! Thanks so much!(L.J, Kansas, USA)
