Dharma Acupuncture of Grass Valley, CA, has announced a new pediatric back to school special where children can benefit from acupuncture and healing techniques to help improve their health and wellness. During school time there is a new patient special, which includes a thorough health and wellness evaluation and an acupuncture treatment with application of essential oils.
Lisa Swanson, the owner and founder of Dharma Acupuncture, explains that children over the age of seven will usually allow needling, but that she will never needle children who don't want to take part in the process.
She has stressed the importance of gaining the child's trust and making the treatments fun, so that children have a happy association with coming to her office for health care visits.
While they are there, she will spend time with the parents showing them the acupressure techniques for calming, immune boosting, and other issues that need to be addressed.
Lisa Swanson completed her pediatric specialization under the direction of Robin Ray Green, a pediatrician acupuncturist. Lisa carries a full herbal pharmacy of powers, tinctures, and other supplements to help children to live happier more balanced lives.
While many people, particularly in western society, believe that acupuncture is just a system for inserting needles into specific body locations, there is a lot more to it. It is a complete medical protocol focused on correcting the imbalances of energy in the body, and has a history over 2,500 years old.
Acupuncture is traditionally used to help prevent, diagnose and treat disease, in addition to its mission of improving general health. Traditional belief emphasizes that it modifies the bodies energy, known as chi, throughout the body. It has been increasingly recognized as an effective treatment for rehab, health and wellness, and can help both adults and children to live fuller, more healthy lives.
