Acupuncture is used for children and adolescents with various types of conditions, including muscle pain or trauma, post surgical pain, anxiety, insomnia, digestive problems, dermatological/acne, hormone imbalances, and PMS/gynecology. In our center, we use specialized pediatric acupuncture needles for virtually pain free treatment.
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.
