Kids Love Acupuncture and Natural Medicine
Holistic Medicine has safely helped children for thousands of years. It is a gentle and effective treatment method appropriate for the prevention of acute and chronic conditions. Holistic Pediatric healthcare is an important part of keeping our children strong in body, mind and spirit.
Needle Free for Children
When treating children, various modalities can be used until they are ready to try acupuncture, including Colorpuncture (a non-invasive style of using colored lights to stimulate acupuncture points), electro pointer (painless stimulation device that is used instead of needles, Japanese style non insertive acupuncture techniques, cupping, moxa, essential oils, shiatsu (a massage technique), reflexology, herbal therapy and diet therapy.
Children benefit from the curative and holistic nature of Natural Medicine. Most often we see children’s vitality and spirit blossom more quickly than we had hoped for, bringing a balanced nature to their lives.
