As parents, we understand the importance of seeking out natural, non-invasive treatments for children. We work carefully to build a relationship with your child and gain his/her trust. You and your child will have the opportunity to ask questions and see the tools and accessories that are commonly used during a treatment. If and when your child is willing, small pediatric needles can be inserted. Even the most needle-phobic child will generally overcome their fears during this gentle introduction to acupuncture. In cases where the child is still uncomfortable with the use of needles, alternative treatment options (acupressure, dietary consultations, herbs, essential oils, etc.) will be discussed.
The most common conditions we treat in children are attention issues (ADD/ADHD), environmental or food allergies, colic, gastrointestinal distress, minor aches and pains, and headaches. We have several patients who are on the autism spectrum. We can treat clients of all ages, including newborns, toddlers, and school-aged kids. Children tend to respond very well - and very quickly - to acupuncture treatments! Interested in more information? Check out the website Kids Love Acupuncture.
We provide a discounted rate for children under the age of 16 of only $40 per treatment. The initial treatment is about 45 minutes and follow-up treatments are about 20-30 minutes.
