                Description:  What do we feed our infants and toddlers and why do we feed them that way?  Does the food we choose for them support their immune system and natural flow of digestion and elimination?  We hope so!

Join mother and Naturopathic Doctor, Jennifer Williamson, to find out which foods support your child's health & growth and which foods tax their new digestive systems.  Learn to alleviate fussiness, colic, reflux, rashes, behavioral outbursts and constipation by feeding your infant or toddler digestible, age-appropriate healthful foods.

This class is an eye opening class that takes us out of the supermarket-shelf-mentality and way from the commonly suggested food introduction charts and into the simple digestive needs of our children.  Take this new knowledge into their older years, as well.  Great for parents concerned with food allergies, too.

Understanding Quantum touch
March 31, 2012

     Instructor:  April Martino
                            Well: Natural Healing
              
                Time:  11:00pm-noon
                Date:  March 31, 2012
                Location: Baby Bongos mini-shop
                Cost:   $12.00
                            $18.00 at door
                       
                Description:  Quantum touch may not be well known in the mainstream community, but once you meet with April, owner of well: natural healing, you will wonder why more people do not know about this energizing and yet relaxing style of  healing and balancing.  April is a wife, mother of 2 and a person of true compassion, as you will notice from the moment you meet her.  Along with some demonstrations,  April will speak about working with both children and adults.  You will leave this session with a basic understanding of how your hands can be intuitively healing for your family.

She is working toward being a certified instructor, as well.  Her services for the whole family and all ages (including infants and pregnancy!) will be offered at the Baby Bongos Shop.

Quantum Touch is...
Many traditional cultures have understood and naturally used the power of touch for healing. We are beginning to see these types of therapies integrated back into allopathic medicine with great results. The method I use is called Quantum Touch® , and is a very basic form of healing that operates on the premise that our bodies know how to heal. 

I often use the example of a cut healing itself. We do not understand how this happens, but our bodies have this amazing intellegence and the process happens automatically. Many of us are already parents. One thing that really stood out to me as I was learning this technique was that when our children are hurt, it is our instinct to lovingly touch wherever they hurt. When we place a very high amount of energy around an area of pain or imbalance, it begins to heal. I have seen amazing results in the past two years of using this modality.  
 They exist on a spectrum from relaxation to miraculous!

April Martino


Quantum Touch does...
 Quantum Touch® is a form of healing touch that uses "life force energy" (also known as "Chi" in Chinese or "Prana" in Sanskrit) to accelerate one’s self-healing. Life Force Energy is the "flow of energy that sustains all living beings". As a practitioner, I use mind-body awareness techniques to concentrate this energy through my hands around an affected area of the physical body (very light touch, fully clothed). Body intelligence will direct this energy to the source of the symptom that one is experiencing, ideally resulting in complete healing. Quantum Touch® is a complimentary therapy and may accelerate healing alone or in conjunction with traditional medical treatment and therapies. This is great for balancing your energy or just relaxation, as it induces a meditative state.
