Why Savvy Moms Choose Chinese Medicine to Safeguard the Health of Their Kids - Fri., 3/18, Pump Station Santa Monica

Did you know pediatrics was actively practiced in Chinese Medicine by 600 AD, with the unique characteristics of child physiology discussed as early as 400 BC? Chinese Medicine has a recorded history of well over 2000 years, with non-needling techniques created just for pediatrics health care. 

Learn how a natural component in your child's healthcare routine assists with prevention and boosts overall wellness. If acupuncture has helped you with your health or fertility needs, then you know the power of Chinese Medicine. 

Incorporating this natural, effective medicine is a sound extension of the special care you want to provide for your baby. It is a gentle tool that helps your child develop and reach milestones graciously and treats common pediatric conditions. 

You will leave this class knowing:

  • When to confidently use Pediatric Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (PAOM) and when to seek your conventional pediatrician's care
  • Therapeutic pediatric massage to aid your child’s health and emotions.
  • The one thing most parents don't know about First Foods introduction

To sign up for this class, contact The Pump Station.

Summer 2016 Office Hours

Luriko will be cutting back her hours at the office during the summer to take a mini sabbatical to work on projects for Iyashi Wellness and to deepen her studies of herbology and pediatrics.  She is also taking some time off to help her son transition into kindergarten and deal with the craziness that is summer camp scheduling.  A big milestone for the family! 

In addition to regularly being closed Fri-Sun, the office will be closed most Tuesdays (West LA location) June through mid August.  Certain weeks will start earlier but end earlier, and other weeks will be regular hours Mon., Wed., and Thurs., so please check Iyashi Wellness' online scheduler periodically for the changes.

Thank you for your patience, flexibility, and understanding as Luriko works to bring better care and services to you and navigates a new aspect of parenthood!

+++As a reminder, as of May 1, 2016, Iyashi Wellness' West Los Angeles office has also moved offices from suite 111 to suite 219 in the same building.+++

Natural Remedies to Fight Cold & Flu Season - Wed. 10/21/15

It's that time of the year everyone!  Cold and flu season is fast upon us already.  I will be talking at Mama Needs a Drink LA and help you break down the 4 different types of Colds/Flus and Coughs that we Physicians of Oriental Medicine recognize.  Knowing the signs and symptoms of the these different types will help you properly assess what your child (or yourself!) is catching and administer natural home-remedies and massages to nip it at the bud.  Consider yourself the first line of defense in medical care armed by this information before having to rush to the pediatrician's office!

To sign up, go here

Pop Up - Iyashi Wellness Kids! SOLD OUT

9/21/15: If you would still like to sign up, you will be placed on a wait list at this point.  We will contact you if anyone registered cancels, or if we decide to move this class to a bigger venue to meet the demands of the community.

School is back on and I bet you are already stressed out.  I've noticed in my clinic that the kids who were doing well, relaxed and happy during the summer break, are coming into my clinic stressed, having tummy issues, sleep issues,  emotional issues.  All from just going back to school.  Some are already getting sick.    What to do, what to do?  Wellness mom-experts Tracey, Christie and I to the rescue!  Bring your children to learn from the three of us how to meditate, be mindful, eat right and do some yoga moves so that they can learn self-awareness and self-regulation techniques to help them manage the stresses that come with going back to school.  A healthy group of children makes for a healthy community and we want Westchester to be a strong, healthy, happy community!

Luriko Ozeki, L.Ac., Physician of Oriental Medicine and Pediatric Specialist, will teach your kids the meaning of Eating Right and Eating Healthy and tips on how to stay healthy and cold/flu free. 

Tracey Lenac, MAEd, founder of Soul Centered Kids, will teach your children how to practice mindfulness and child-appropriate meditation techniques to help them cope with modern day stresses of being a child.

Christie Savitt, MA, founder of Blue Bird Behavior Resources, will teach children special yoga moves to help them get out of their heads and into their bodies, allowing them to be more present in the moment.
