At our healing center, we offer comprehensive care for children including babies and toddlers all the way through tween and teen years.
Children respond so well to Chinese medicine therapies that they often only need between 1-3 treatments to get back on track. From chronic, recurrent ear infections to eczema, and asthma, we have many tools to bring your child out of pain and back into balance.
The traumas that kids experience from vaccinations, blood draws and other western medical treatments make it unlikely that children are going to jump at the idea of having any kind of treatment with needles. This is often what deters most people. Don’t worry, we understand and we see this all the time (and even with adults!).
Here are a few ways that we can treat children in Chinese Medicine:
Shonishin Pediatric Treatment is a beautiful style of Japanese acupuncture which is a needle-free form of acupuncture designed specifically to work with children. This is a form of pediatric treatment that is safe for children of all ages including babies.
Herbal Medicine for Children can also be great for digestive issues, mood stabilization, boosting their immune systems, helping them sleep better, among many other concerns.
Moxibustion, especially when used in a tiger warmer is a wonderful way to support the recovery from ear infections, colds, and cases of flu, as well as digestive issues. This treatment is very pleasant and often brings a great sense of comfort and well-being to kids immediately.
Cupping can be a great addition to any pediatric treatment. Cupping is the gentle suctioning of strategic places on the body to bring about blood flow and healing. Kids are often fascinated with cupping! And it feels like a massage to them.
