Come join me for a monthly wellness clinic just for kids. Using non-needle techniques from Chinese Medicine and Ayurvedic Medicine, children ages 2 months – 14 years will be treated to boost immunity, help with sleep, digestion and overall emotional balance. Cost of treatment is $30. Sign up: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20F054CAAA729A3FD0-community1 

All treatments include a 15 minute hands on treatment and brief discussion of any acute symptoms the child may be experiencing. Shonishin ((sho = little, ni = children, shin = needle)  is the primary modality used with the children. The treatment consists of pressing, rubbing, tapping, or light scraping of the skin to provide a gentle stimulation that will improve the severity of the child’s current symptoms as well as strengthen their overall constitution. Parents can get an auricular acupuncture (ear) treatment for themselves while children are treated. You will be in the same room. Cost is $20.

The treatment utilizes specialized techniques within the framework of Traditional Oriental Medicine to balance the child’s energy and stimulate or sedate the energetic pathways as needed and was developed in Japan around 2000 years ago.  Since this is non-invasive and non-threatening to the child, the children often enjoy their treatments and look forward to continuing their therapy. If there is a health concern that you want to specifically focus on, we can discuss scheduling a more thorough consultation to meet your child’s individual needs. 

Some of the most common conditions treated include:

  • coughs 
  • allergies
  • fever
  • asthma
  • ADD and ADHD
  • bed wetting
  • digestive disorders
  • colic
  • sleep disorders 
  • failure to thrive
  • pediatric pain
  • symptomatic treatment of Autistic Spectrum Disorder

I look forward to working with you and your littles!

A little bit about me:

Hi Everyone. I am a mom to two toddler boys, an Acupuncturist and Public Health Educator. I’ve been in the health field for the last 18 years and really enjoy the perspective Chinese Medicine offers on improving overall health and longevity. My own children have had health issues that led me down the path to focus on Pediatrics in Chinese Medicine. I sought out the perspective from so many knowledgeable practitioners to help me, as my boys worked through what they were experiencing. With the help of amazing pediatric physical, occupational, speech therapists, chiropractors, acupuncturists and naturopathic doctors, I was able to design a customized health plan for each of them. While we continue on this journey together, I wanted to be one of those ‘amazing’ practitioners to other families, that might have questions of alternative ways to look at their child’s health. My approach integrates the invaluable first hand experience I have had working with all of these practitioners, with my own children, as well as the mentorship offered by these knowledgeable and skilled practitioners, Robin Ray Green, LAc, Soma Glick, LAc, and Dorine Karlin, ND, LAc. Please come and meet me at a Wellness Clinic, offered only for kids, around the Los Angeles area or schedule a 10 min discovery consultation with me to see if I am the right fit for your pediatric health team.
