Holistic Pediatric Treatments

Our natural, no side effects healing sessions are geared towards helping your little one’s body heal itself, we use gentle yet powerful tools along with lifestyle recommendations that will assist the healing process.

Non-Needle techniques

The most frequently used method of treating babies and children, these techniques stimulate the child’s own healing capacity without the use of acupuncture needles:

Shoni-shin

This pediatric Japanese technique involves stroking, tapping, rubbing and pressing the skin with small special tools to create a variety of gentle stimulation on the skin. These techniques help strengthen your child’s constitution, build and maintain their immune system, and stop the recurrent illness.

Laser Acupuncture

Laser acupuncture is a particularly popular option for young children. It uses infrared light from a device that resembles a small flashlight to deliver an imperceptible dose of thermal energy to the pressure point.

Tui Na

Is an ancient form of Chinese massage. It can be a highly effective modality for treating commonly encountered childhood diseases. Parents are instructed in these simple, effective techniques in order to support their child at home in between sessions.

Gua Sha

also known as Scraping Massage is one of our favorite techniques to use on kids ages 4 and up. Kids love this technique because it feels so good. It’s great for treating allergies, coughs, colds and fever and most kids respond really quickly.

Herbal Medicine

Herbal medicine is a big part of our treatment, all of the herbal formulas we use are manufactured especially for children here in the USA. They are selected for their purity and safety.

What should we expect after treatment?

Depends on each child’s unique situation, but we typically see that kids begin to feel more calm, sleep very well through the night, and have more stable emotions directly after the treatment is administered.

How many visits will my child need?

Length and frequency of treatment varies from case to case. At your first consultation we’ll be able to give you an idea of what level of commitment will be required for optimal results.
