Common Symptoms Treated in pediatric Acupuncture:
& Everything In-between
Non-needling techniques are available for children as well:
Laser - Lasers are a painless way to stimulate acupuncture points and increase ATP production/cell growth.
Shonishin - This gentle Japanese technique uses non-insertive tools to brush and stimulate acupuncture points and channels on the body.
Cupping - Using suction, cups placed on the body increase blood flow, help to reduce pain and inflammation, and provide a safe treatment for respiratory issues.
Moxibustion - “Moxa” is an ancient Chinese warming and tonifying therapy where mugwort is burned over acupuncture points, channels, or areas of the body. A favorite treatment for growing pains!
