Safe and Effective Treatments for Children
Non Needle Alternatives to Restore Your Child's Health
At Path of Wellness, we specialize in treating families, and families include children of all ages. We offer several needle-free options for treating children that are just as effective as traditional acupuncture at getting your child to feel better.
Tuina is a special type of Chinese medical massage. It utilizes several different massage techniques in order to stimulate acupuncture points and increase blood flow and circulation in the body to achieve results. Pediatric tuina is an incredibly simple yet effective modality to help your child feel better.
We will use pediatric tuina on your child in the office and then we will teach you (the parent) some basic techniques that you can utilize on your child at home on a daily basis to continue the healing benefits. Babies and young children up to 6 years old respond very well to pediatric tuina and often find it soothing and enjoy receiving their daily massages.
For children who don't want to have traditional acupuncture, laser acupuncture is a great alternative. We use both red and blue cold lasers to stimulate acupuncture points and achieve a similar healing effect as if we had used needles.
Research has shown that using the light emitted from cold lasers can regenerate cells, decrease pain, reduce inflammation and improve circulation in the body.
Acupuncture points only need to be stimulated from 15-60 seconds to activate the healing response.
