Little Healing Arts was created by Dr Karen Erickson to create a community around all things health and healing for babies, children and families. Children are magnificent creations. Ultimate high-tech. Parenting is a lifestyle. Parenting is a spiritual path. When we create families, we create the potential for magic, for growth, for alchemy, for grace.
Parents and caregivers can elevate every aspect of a child’s wellbeing: physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. Parents want to get it right. As their child grows, they navigate to stay ahead of the curve. They want to bring forth the fullest expression of their children, and themselves as well. While we are immersed in the messy process of living, we strive to create our parenting as a work of art.
This page is a guide on how we can support the children in our lives: through lifestyle, simple practices that develop the immune and nervous system, exercise and movement, essential oils, chiropractic and craniosacral therapy, homeopathy, supplements, whole foods, healing diets, connection to nature, creative projects and hands on therapies parents can do with their children and teach their children to do on their own. Some of this knowledge is ancient, and some comes from the latest research.
Here is a place where introducing solids meets making your own baby food, where infant massage meets baby exercises, where creating art meets adventures in the natural world, and where developmental landmarks meet bonding and independence.
