Is your child sick too often?

Are you frustrated that your child’s illness persists after repeated medications?

Have you tried multiple medical treatments with no or very little results?

Time for a different approach- the Traditional Chinese medicine!

Traditional Chinese medicine is a time-tested practice backed by more than 2,000 years. It focuses on balance the body, and uses acupuncture, herbs and lifestyle change to assist and strengthen the child’s own healing and repair capabilities and bring back a state of good health.

With our three generation experience in pediatrics of Chinese medicine, we have great success  with:

and many others…

From infants to teenagers, acupuncture and herbs can be a gentle and effective addition to your child’s pediatric care. Every acupuncture treatment is designed to fit your child’s needs and suit their temperament. We have several needle-less treatment options, although we are also skilled when it comes to administering acupuncture with little to no sensation. We can support your child by helping to eliminate digestive problems, provide additional immune support, offset behavioral problems.
