8branches Chinese Medicine

Pediatric Care



Our treatments for infants and children involve non-needle techniques, herbs, supplements and nutritional advice. We educate parents on preventative practices they can use at home, including acupressure and dietary changes. We’ll help you navigate natural solutions to keep your children well and avoid unnecessary or repeated use of antibiotics.

Chinese Medicine emphasizes the importance of supporting the digestive system in children.  Treatments include:

  • Nutrition Consultation
  • Acupuncture (generally, ages 5 and older)
  • Acupressure/Shoni Shin/Tui Na (non-needle techniques)
  • Whole Food Supplements and Herbal Medicine (including moxibustion)

Little ones respond quite quickly to treatments and usually see improvement with fewer, shorter treatments than adults.

Both needle and non-needle techniques are used to treat many conditions in children, such as:

  • Allergies
  • ADHD
  • Asthma
  • Ear Infection
  • Cough
  • Colic
  • Chronic Illness
  • Irritability/Moodiness
  • Digestive and Elimination Issues
  • Bed Wetting

Chinese Medicine is the perfect compliment to Western medical care and can help reduce the side effects of pharmaceutical medications. Researchers across the country continue to see how acupuncture can safely benefit children.
