How Can Acupuncture Help Me?
Please go to 'Common Questions' for a list of conditions effectively treated using acupuncture.
Acupuncture is a comprehensive system that respects the body as a complex and integrated whole. A full health history, examination and discussion of diet and lifestyle are integral to every treatment. Even seemingly unrelated signs and symptoms describe a pattern of imbalance in the language of Traditional Chinese Medicine. These imbalances may occur as a result of genetics, lifestyle or injury. Once the pattern has been identified, and an appropriate acupuncture regimen is applied, the symptoms resulting from the underlying balance will begin to diminish.
How Can Acupuncture Help My Child?
Children respond very readily to the healing touch of acupuncture, and most find the prospect much less daunting than most parents imagine. Some conditions that are particularly well suited for treatment with acupuncture in children include:
Seasonal Allergies, Asthma, Difficulty Sleeping, Frequent Stomachaches, Chronic Car Sickness, Inability to Focus, Outburst of Fear/Anger/Frustration, Headaches
Every Acupuncture treatment is highly individualized to the needs of each patient, and this is especially true with children. Great care is taken to create a comfortable environment. Breathing exercises or acupressure may be incorporated into the session as appropriate.
