Kids Acupuncture Steps of Care
Step One CHILDREN'S INITIAL ASSESSMENT
This includes TWO sessions that allow us to determine imbalances in your child's body and it helps us determine if regular acupuncture or light therapy treatment is better for your child
Step Two RELIEF & CORRECTIVE CARE
Your child's body talks
Your child's life story impacts their health. When the body develops imbalances of balance it starts talking with symptoms! Our job is to understand your child's unique story and how it has impacted their health.
Here we learn about your body by utilizing both modern science (AcuGraph) and traditional diagnosis methods (tongue and pulse diagnosis).
Your child's first treatment
Change begins with the very first treatment. The acupuncture will start teaching your child's body how to re-learn its optimal function and its innate ability to heal. During the first session we will determine if acupuncture with needles or Light Therapy is best for your child.
Step Three WELLNESS CARE
Time to thrive!
Your child's imbalances are corrected and now it's time to thrive. We like to check in with your child to make sure that your child's body is on track and working optimally!
We coninue to monitor your child's body to ensure imbalances are not developing and your child is health!
Benefits of regular acupuncture!
Whether with Light Therapy or acupuncture with needles, kids experience less colds, better energy and focus in school and are generally happier!
Light Therapy & Insertive Options
LIGHT THERAPY FOR KIDS
What is Light Therapy?
We use two types of cold lasers: Red (450 nm) and Blue (635 nm). We use these frequencies of light on specfic acupuncture points customized for your child. The treatments have no sensation and are extremely effective!
Why Light Therapy vs Acupuncture with needles?
Most children are afraid of needles due to painful previous injections in their doctor's office. Light therapy is great for younger children that may have difficulties sitting still and enjoying a rest during acupuncture treatments with needles.
Can you switch to needles later?
Yes! We like kids to transition eventually. Why? Acupuncture coupled with a nap (AcuNap) is powerful! Who doesn't feel better after a nap?
INSERTIVE ACUPUNCTURE FOR KIDS

Here we learn about your body by utilizing both modern science (acugraph) and traditional diagnosis methods (tongue and pulse diagnosis).
