WELCOME ABOUT SERVICES PEDIATRICS APPOINTMENTS FAQ
Pediatric acupuncture and integrative care focuses on the principles of health, wellness, prevention and the resolution of illness. At its core, Chinese medicine and acupuncture help guide the body back to our natural balanced and resilient state.
Treatments are customized to each child's temperament and specific needs. All aspects of a child's health are taken into consideration, respecting his or her physical, mental and emotional well-being. After a thorough assessment and discussion of the child's health history and current complaint, one or more of the following treatment methods may be used: acupressure, pediatric tui na, adhesive seeds or magnets, microcurrent, pediatric acupuncture needles, herbal and nutrition therapy.
Our aim is to first support your child in becoming comfortable with the idea of the treatment techniques, explain things thoroughly, and answer all questions! We may demonstrate the therapy on a stuffed animal or our own hand to show your child what to expect. Acupuncture needles are tiny and not hollow so they do not rip the skin like the hypodermic needles children are used to. Children are usually surprised at how little discomfort they actually feel, and often say how relaxed they are and how much they enjoy the sessions.
Commonly treated conditions in children are: allergies, respiratory (asthma, bronchitis, common cold) and digestive disorders (constipation, diarrhea, indigestion) as well as aches and pains (headache, joint pain, sore muscles), bedwetting, ADHD/ADD, insomnia, anxiety, and depression.
