Acupuncture is a safer alternative from standard medical therapies for chronic pain conditions. Parents and children can look at acupuncture and other alternative medicine due to relatively low risk profile, avoiding side effects from pharmacological agents including sedation, dizziness, tolerance, nausea, constipation, and depression.
We also offer pediatric massage therapy. We respect that some children and teens may be hesitant when it comes to the idea of using acupuncture needles, so we offer a variety of massage therapy services. All of our therapists are licensed in massage therapy for children and adolescents.
Many pediatric and adolescent conditions respond very well to certain herbal medicines, supplements, and/or loose leaf teas. We offer a variety of choices in our office and will provide guidance with regard to directions and dosing.
The Kokin Healing Center also provides nutrition consultation for children. Whether the condition is diabetes, obesity, allergies, or finicky eaters, our nutritional counseling is extremely effective.
