Children & Teens

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.

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.
