Are You Looking for Natural, Safe, and Effective Solutions for Your Child’s Health needs?

If you’re looking for ways to help your child heal naturally with nutrition, supplements, herbs, and alternative therapies, then you are in the right place!

Here are some factors that can affect a child’s health:

Accidents/falls: Children often fall and hurt themselves. Physical trauma blocks the free movement of blood and vital energy. Eventually, this can lead to less-than-adequate nourishment for the body and organ systems.

Environment: Exposure to environmental and chemical hazards can have a direct impact upon a child’s health. This may make them susceptible to things like colds, allergies, asthma and digestive troubles.

Diet: A diet lacking in proper nutrition can affect organ function and eventually overall health and well-being. Acupuncture and natural medicine helps strengthen and support out-of-balance organs.

Emotions: Children may experience unpleasant situations that affect them emotionally. They can internalize the stress from these situations, and over time, this stress can manifest into various signs and symptoms.

If not properly detected and cared for, stressors can lead to an inadequate supply of energy necessary to nourish and support health. Eventually, your child may have symptoms and signs of illness, disease and pain may appear.

How Do We Work? Your physician will begin by taking a full health history. This may include asking questions, assessing the pulses, looking at the tongue and/or abdominal palpation. These are effective diagnostic tools that enable your physician to obtain a clear picture of your child’s overall health.

If signs of weakness, imbalance or blockage are found, your physician may use a variety of non-invasive and gentle treatment methods to restore the balance of the body, thereby facilitating your child’s natural ability to heal. Some of these techniques may include: acupressure, herbs, pediatric massage, acupuncture, moxibustion or cupping.

An acupuncture checkup could be valuable in determining the present and future health and well-being of your child. Caring for your child’s health with acupuncture is safe, natural, drug-free and effective. It’s the perfect way to allow your child to grow and thrive.
