Kids are “ a bird in a cage”.
Kids are coping with Corona blue?
It has been a tough year for everyone. Coronavirus has changed all aspects of our lives. In addition to posing a high risk to physical health, COVID-19 has robustly affected global mental health.
Then what about our kids? Kids are suffering more than us. No social interactions, homeschooling, and all the restrictions! They need to express and use all their “Qi (energy)”. What if they don’t?
Have you ever heard “Mom, my tummy is hurting. I can’t sleep, mom. Can you lie down with me"?Your child has learning disabilities, Autism (Spectrum disorder) or ADHD? Attention disorder? Or has your child expressing his/her feelings more often or not?
Kids are more sensitive than us. Every child handles their feelings differently.
Acupuncture are Chinese herbs are quite popular for treatment of Autism, ADHD, Attention disorder and learning disabilities.
Acupuncture can induce a calmer state of mind in your child that can be maintained indefinitely with consistent treatments. It is a much safter and very effective alternative.
Your child can be safely and effectively treated with acupuncture and Chinese herbs by finding the root cause of the problem without using dangerous and addictive sedatives.
Believe it or not, Kids love acupuncture. They love their treatments. More spontaneous and fun! They respond very quickly than us.
Now, I know you have some questions:
1.) "At what age can my child get acupuncture treatments?” Starting from Infants! There is no fixed age to start to benefit from acupuncture. A
youngest child that I’ve seen was a month-old baby!
2.) "Is it painful? I know my child HATES needles.” My answer is NO. For pediatric treatments, I do use different modalities, not only just
3.) "How many sessions are needed for there to be an improvement?"
The number of sessions depends on your child's pattern of illness. Usually, it is up to 5
to 8 sessions for mild or acute conditions and 10+ for deeply rooted conditions or
Let’s help our kids feel great and better!
I’d be more than happy to navigate your child in their healing journey.
