Acupuncture for Kids
Acupuncture for kids is a safe, natural and effective form of treatment. Pediatric acupuncture has a long and rich history in Chinese Medicine and has been practiced in China since the Song Dynasty (960-1279 AD).
It is especially important early in life to develop good health. Early treatment and intervention can help prevent a lifetime of sickness. Regular wellness visits can build the immune system and strengthen the body to fight off illness.
Pediatric acupuncture can treat acute conditions such as colds, flus, and ear infections, as well as chronic conditions such as allergies, eczema, anxiety and sleep problems. Pediatric acupuncture can treat many childhood ailments to restore health, increase immunity, and maintain health.
We use both needle and non-needle techniques such as acupressure, pediatric massage, cupping, and shonishin (a gentle Japanese technique to stimulate acupuncture points). We also use nutrition and natural herbal formulas to promote self-healing and wellness.
We take the time to get to know you, your family and your child to develop customized care based on each individual child’s needs. Health is not only the absence of disease but having healthy and happy kids that thrive.
