As a father, I know how hard it is to see your children sick. It doesn’t matter if it’s just a little sniffle or debilitating chronic disease, I use a wide variety of Traditional Chinese Medicine modalities (much more than just acupuncture). I am a trained Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner that is well versed in the following:
- Pediatric Acupuncture
- Non-Needing Acupuncture (such as turning fork acupressure and manual acupressure)
- Traditional Chinese Infant/ Pediatric Massage (Xiao Er Tui Na)
- Japanese Magnetic Therapy
- Ear Seeds
- Traditional Chinese Food Cures
- Dietary/ Supplements advice
- Qi Gong/ exercise recommendations
- Lifestyle advice
- Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine
Many of these modalities are used at once to bring about a powerful result = a healthier child!
