How will acupuncture treatments improve your physical and mental health?

Acupuncture is a safe, relaxing, and effective treatment to heal your aches and pains.  It works by stimulating specific areas on the body to create a physiological shift.  This triggers the body’s innate ability to heal itself.  Chinese Medicine understands that every individual is unique, therefore each treatment is customized to meet  your specific needs.

In addition to  acupuncture, supplementary techniques may include cupping, gua sha, moxibustion, and nutritional recommendations.  All will support your acupuncture treatment by improving circulation, reducing inflammation, and helping your body to reach it healthiest potential.

Do children like acupuncture?

Yes! In my experience they love it. Unlike adults they don’t wonder if it is working, how it’s working or why. They just enjoy how it makes them feel.  The most commonly treated pediatric conditions are digestive disorders, chronic colds, ear infections, anxiety, and bed wetting. 

Does it hurt?

No.  Japanese pediatric acupuncture is called Shonishin.  It is a type of acu-pressure that uses gentle tools to stimulate the acupuncture points and pathways without the use of needles.  A pediatric treatment uses tools that do not penetrate the skin or cause any discomfort. It is a wonderful way to support the child’s health naturally.
