Adolescents and Teens

Is your child struggling or facing health concerns? 

Whether your kids are experiencing growing pains, or need help recovering from sports injuries, have PMS or painful periods, I can help. 

Are they struggling with ADD or ADHD, or maybe feeling the effects of the stresses, anxieties, and attention symptoms that can come from having to navigate the world, the social pressures and demands of modern day life? Not to mention technology and its effect on sleep and on young minds.

I’ve had success working on the following issues with teens & adolescents: 

  • Musculoskeletal trauma
  • Sports injuries (including head trauma)
  • PMS and painful periods
  • Stress, anxiety, emotional regulation
  • Depression
  • Focus and hyperactivity issues
  • Gastro-intestinal disorders 
  • Autoimmune diseases & rheumatoid arthritis
  • Skin problems (acne, eczema, psoriasis) 
  • Sleep issues

One of my favorite groups of people to work with are adolescents and teens because the the payoff is so big and it can save parents and families the pain of a lot of struggles, really.

Results come more quickly, tend to be longer-lasting, and it’s common to see pivotal changes and improvement. 

Keep in mind, someone that has a serious or chronic health concern may not be cured with Chinese medicine. But finding an effective approach that is free of side effects, that reduces, pain, inflammation and fatigue, during flare ups can truly be life changing.

Many pharmaceutical medications and other Western medicine interventions have a high price tag associated with them. In the case of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, meds can reduce joint pain, inflammation, and prevent deterioration in the joints, but they might be damaging your child’s liver or kidney, for example. 

Some kids don’t tolerate being on medications or parents & doctors hope to lower the dose that is needed, by combining them with other therapies like acupuncture and Chinese medicine. Some parents wisely want to see if there’s an approach that’s equally viable, without the potentially dangerous side effects of the pills routinely prescribed for kids and teens to treat anxiety, depression, hyperactivity, attention deficit, ADHD. 

Parents have reported that the approach I take with their kids can be just as, and often more, effective without side effects.

It’s worth spending a period of time to see how much Japanese Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine can help. That payoff can be bigger than you may realize. 

As a parent, you know that when a child is not happy, it affects the whole household.

When a child has been struggling at home or in school, and comes to work with me, they may quickly find they have a new sense of calm and focus. 

It’s really nice for them, for you, for your entire family.

Painless Japanese Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine can bring possibilities to your child’s school, social, and home life.

Let’s set up an appointment to talk about your child’s challenges and how treatments can improve their lives.
