Find Family-First Care at Santosha Wellness

The one thing all parents know?

Kids are unique. And they certainly don’t come with an instruction manual.

Often our children throw us curve balls within their growth and development. We may find ourselves wondering what steps to take. It is comforting to know Kalamazoo has a wellness center dedicated to meeting the needs of kids and families.

Santosha Wellness is the first and only children’s wellness center in Kalamazoo, offering a variety of wellness programs for children of all ages and abilities. The staff is passionate about providing evidence-based interventions and supporting child development through natural play and movement.

Working with Santosh Wellness means contentment and satisfaction. Caregivers in our community are living that firsthand. Parents who walk into Santosha receive acceptance, understanding, confidence, and the tools they need to support their children.

We are taking the Play and Grow class for babies 0-6 months. Rebecca is awesome. We are learning about so many ways to play with our babies that are beneficial for their development. It’s also been an amazing way to connect with our babies and socialize with and support other moms. We love it!”

Santosha Wellness Pediatric and Infant Classes

It’s been amazing to reflect back on the last two years and see how Santosha Wellness has changed and grown. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to now be in a much larger space and offering so many new programs. Our mission here at Santosha is to serve children; and we believe that in order to serve children, we need to serve the WHOLE child, meaning their caregivers, siblings, and through collaborating with all those on their care team (doctors, counselors, teachers, etc). And in this new space and expanded team, we are able to do just that; more readily serve children on all aspects of the wellness continuum. We are passionate about children’s wellness, and are excited to see how we continue to grow and expand in the community.”
