Chinese medicine has been used for thousands of years to safely, effectively and gently treat a variety of childhood complaints without the use of needling. Here at Grow Wellness Acupuncture, we take pride in specializing in the compassionate care of children. We understand the fear that can come with any childhood diagnosis, and strive to empower our patients and parents in offering natural remedies and lifestyle advice alongside your pediatrician’s recommendations. In our experience, children respond quite quickly to our treatments, which include acupressure massage, herbal formulas and dietary advice. Our treatments are perfect for those seeking an alternative to Western pharmaceutical care, or for patients who are already receiving maximum medical treatment.
Some of the areas we can help your child include:
- Infant Colic
- Chronic Asthma
- Chronic Cough
- Chronic Colds, Flu, Ear or Throat Infection
- Digestive Problems
- Adolescent Mood Changes (Depression, Anxiety, Anger)
- Adolescent Menstrual Concerns (Amenorrhea, Cramping, Irregular Cycles)
Children and Herbs
Herbal formulas are a great way to safely alleviate childhood symptoms, and best of all can be administered at home – avoiding frequent office visits which can be stressful for children. All of our formulas are tailored to your child’s individual needs and given in the appropriate pediatric dose for safe use. Unlike Western medications, our pediatric formulas do not have side-effects. Herbal formulas are safe to take with most medications, and will be discussed extensively at your visit to ensure optimum effects. In addition to symptom relief, many of our pediatric patients also note a reduction on sick-days, improved immunity, sleep and energy.
