I will be teaching a children’s health class for parents on January 21, 2017 from 1-3pm where I will give more information for parents to help their kids maintain health and provide support for their kids when they do become ill. Topics taught include massage techniques, specific points for maintaining children’s health using a tuning fork, dietary advice.
