Acupuncture helps your whole family face life’s many challenges.
Kids and teens are some of my favorite clients! Results come more quickly, tend to be longer-lasting, and it’s common to see pivotal changes and improvement.
Whether it’s a sports injury, growing pains, skin problems, or have PMS and/or painful periods, I can help.
I’ve also seen great success in treating individuals with anxiety, ADD or ADHD and can ameliorate the effects of technology and its influence on sleep and young minds. If you are noticing your child is struggling with stress, difficulty navigating their path in the world, or meeting the social pressures and demands of modern-day life our work together can make a huge difference. 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.
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
- Focus and hyperactivity issues
- Gastro-intestinal disorders
- Autoimmune diseases & rheumatoid arthritis
- Skin problems (acne, eczema, psoriasis)
- Sleep issues
If your child has an auto-immune disease or chronic illness, finding an effective approach that is free of side effects, 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 and so minimizing side effects by incorporating integrative medicine and acupuncture is very worthwhile. Parents have reported that the approach I take is often more effective and without side effects for their kids.
