My little one is terribly afraid of needles and would never sit still!  How is this possible?


Holistic Acupuncture care offers many modalities besides needle stimulated acupuncture. Tui-na (a type of massage) is used along meridian lines and acupuncture points to stimulate the body for the desired effect. Cold lasers that exhibit no temperature, and are not felt are also used. Application of essential oils can also be used, and we will only do what your child is ready for and willing to allow. If and when acupuncture needles are used they are hair thin, and only stay in for a few seconds - that is because when we are young our energy courses much faster through the body and our immune system is strong, therefore less time is needed to get the appropriate response. Additionally nutritional counseling, homeopathic remedies, herbs and supplements may be utilized.
