Pediatric Treatments with "Dr. Pocean"

"Dr Pocean is amazing and my 3yr old daughter really looks forward to going and seeing her. We have had really positive experience and positive results. My daughter was dealing with digestive issues and she helped make my daughter an active participant in her healing. Dr. Pocean really has a way with children and makes the appointment really fun." 

-Laura M., Restaurant Owner, Mother, Santa Cruz CA

Pocean, or "Dr. Pocean" as the children call her, offers Monthly Pediatric Lunar Treatments for overall health maintenance, in addition to traditional Pediatric treatments as needed for acute and chronic conditions. 


"Leela loved her treatment with Pocean, she was getting over a cold so she got a little extra immune boosting and was visibly improved after her treatment, going from coughing all day to barely at all! She also conked out for a long peaceful nap and woke up happy, no whining, and asking for 'more treatment pwease'! We will see you next full moon!"

Ashley Shanti, Doula, Mother, Santa Cruz CA

Pediatric Lunar Treatments: When the moon is waxing and almost full, it exerts an influence not only on the tides of the oceans but also on the currents within our body. Children's currents move quicker and stronger than adults, and the full moon is a wonderful opportunity to treat, improve and balance a child's health as they grow. 

Pediatric Lunar treatments, originate from Japan. They are typically done for infants and children up until the age of 10 each month right before the full moon to enhance the immune system, strengthen the constitution, improve digestion, prevent and treat allergies and illnesses, and nourish the spirit - balancing your child's developing organ systems and meridians, or energy pathways. Best of all, kids love it! 

Pediatric Lunar treatments are painless, gentle and consist of Shonishin: massage with Japanese tapping tools which never penetrate the skin, Tuina, and occasionally moxa, cupping and essential oils. A session typically lasts only 30 minutes and it's amazing what improvements you may see in your child's health! 

When a child is given 12 treatments per year, once a month, problems that might arise due to weather, diet, emotions, or lifestyle will be avoided. The child’s treatment can be fine-tuned for any acute concerns.
