Pediatric Chinese Medicine treatments can be effective in treating the symptoms of many childhood illnesses, from colic and digestive upset, to allergies, asthma, eczema, ear infection, frequent illness, sleep issues and more. Treatments can be very helpful in preventing cold & flu symptoms, and also in helping a child heal from viral illness more quickly, without the development of secondary infection. Chinese Medicine can also help children with symptoms of ADD, ADHD, Autism and other increasingly common conditions that are plaguing modern children today.
In our treatments, we primarily use a technique called Shonishin. Shonishin comes from Japan and helps children heal by stimulating their bodies' natural healing ability without the use of acupuncture needles. In Chinese Medicine, it is thought that all illness stems from energetic imbalances that can be present long before we are aware of having symptoms of disease. Like regular acupuncture for adults, regular Shonishin for kids helps correct these imbalances before illness occurs.
