Peadiatric Wellbeing



I understand that as a parent, you want nothing but the best for your child and their well-being.

At my clinic, I prioritize the safety and comfort of your child above all else. I am an experienced pediatric acupuncturist dedicated to providing the best care for your child.

I understand that kids can be a little nervous about needles, but I want to assure you that pediatric acupuncture is nothing like getting a shot. My needles are super tiny and I call them "taps". I even do a bit of rubbing and tapping before inserting the needle to make sure your child is comfortable.

I have lots of different treatment options for kids, so don't worry if your child isn't sure about acupuncture.

During the first visit, I'll show them what the "taps" look like and ask if they want to give it a try. But if they're still not sure, that's totally okay. I have other options like acupressure, micro-current, cold laser, magnets, ear seeds, or pediatric massage that work just as well. I'll never push your child to do something they're not comfortable with.

Acupuncture is a bit of a process, so it may take a few visits to see how your child's body responds. But don't worry, you'll start to see some positive changes after just a few appointments.

Usually, I recommend coming in once or twice a week for 5-10 weeks.

It's important to note that acupuncture is not meant to replace regular medical treatment. It's a complementary therapy that works well with other types of treatment.

Lastly, I want to reassure you that I am here to answer any questions or concerns you may have throughout the treatment process.

I want to be your go-to resource for all things pediatric acupuncture and I am here to support you and your child every step of the way towards a healthy happy fun life !!!
