Pediatric services:

Child Acupuncture (for children 0-12): Pediatric acupuncture involves a combination of tiny sterile acupuncture needles, magnet therapy, and acupressure. Needles are not used on very young children. Child acupuncture can address respiratory, digestive, musculoskeletal, emotional, sleep, and immune-based health issues.

We bill insurance for child acupuncture sessions when there is coverage.

Pediatric Craniosacral Treatment (for children 0-12): Craniosacral therapy is a gentle, hands-on approach to restore balance to the body and release deeply-stored tension.
