Your Child + Our Skilled, Specialized Holistic Care
= STRENGTH * RESILIENCE * JOY
YOUR CHILD – Strong & Resilient
The ability for children (and adults, for that matter) to meet life’s challenges and grow into the amazing people they are destined to be is predicated upon TWO very important qualities – STRENGTH and RESILIENCE.
Our process – which is 100% natural and works in conjunction with other (including conventional) therapies – leverages a precise combination of nutrition, targeted supplements (if necessary), and needle-free, painless acupuncture for a PROVEN and POWERFUL way to build resilient, strong brain, immune, digestive, and sensory systems.
We’ve seen it 1000s of times in adults, and it works even BETTER in children.
Our skilled approach to natural pediatric care helps your child overcome these and other common issues:
Eczema and Skin Rashes
Weight Gain Or Growth Problems
Chronic Ear Infections
Here’s How It Works…
We address the ROOT CAUSE of your child's issues.
Our process includes finding and treating the actual root cause of your child’s condition. This is why so many adults over the past 8 years have found relief with our therapies, even though other therapies didn’t work. Now we’re bringing that same process to bear in helping the children of our community achieve optimal health while overcoming chronic conditions that don’t respond as well as we would like to conventional treatments.
Guides and awakens your child's natural healing abilities
Your doctor may have told you that you have to live with your child’s condition and/or the treatment options they offer are as “good as it gets”. That’s OK, it just means they have run out of ideas. That’s where WE come in. We help you with natural interventions that strengthen your child’s immune, nervous, and digestive systems to bring them back to a state of strength and resilience – like nature intended them to be.
We get help you help your child
There’s a lot of conflicting advice out there about what to do in terms of diet, sleep, lifestyle, emotions, and other aspects of your child’s health and well-being. Our approach is to SIMPLIFY and bring CLARITY to the situation so YOU feel less stressed and worried and YOUR CHILD is not overburdened with difficult, overwhelming changes to diet and routine.
We focus on how your child FEELS - not just the numbers
Is your child calmer? Is he/she sleeping more soundly? Are the symptoms and signs that concern you beginning to resolve? THAT is OUR focus. NOT more expensive, unnecessary lab tests.
We focus on bringing the body back into balance as quickly as possible
Our approach ALWAYS includes stress reduction
Here's How Our Unique Combination of FOUR Very Potent, Time-Tested 100% Natural Therapies Work To Bring The Body To Heal Itself
(And YOU get to choose which therapies you would like to incorporate.)
Acupuncture is one of the most powerful ways to naturally stimulate your body's innate healing process. Then, it gets right to work repairing and restoring all cells and tissues.
Herbs simultaneously cure AND strengthen the body. This dual action is something unique to herbal medicine that makes it very well suited to treat hormonal conditions including thyroid, menstrual disorders, mood problems, sleep issues, and fertility.
Functional Nutritional Therapy
When your cells, glands, and tissues are fully nourished with the specific nutrients they need, these tissues naturally function at a very high level. This means you feel your best because the body’s key systems are optimized.
Relaxation and Stress-Reduction
When your nervous system is calm, the hormonal system, immune system, digestive, and circulatory systems all calm down, too. This means a more focused mind, more resilient immune system, less inflammation, better circulation, and optimal nutrient absorption.
Our Proven Process
At your initial consultation you’ll meet with your clinician to discuss your child’s case, including their medical history, any medications they’re taking, and most importantly YOUR GOALS. We want to be certain that our program is going to meet your needs and that there is a HIGH probability of success for you – BEFORE we move forward to the next step.
(IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO BRING YOUR CHILD TO THE INTIIAL CONSULTATION).
Detailed Assessment & Treatment Plan
Once your consultation is complete, and we agree to move forward, your next step is the Intake appointment. At this appointment, your clinician will do a detailed assessment of your child’s symptom pattern, medical history, and other factors to determine the root cause of the issue and devise a specific treatment plan.
Their first gentle or non-needle acupuncture session will be performed at this time (if desired), and you will be given a printed treatment plan with exact, easy-to-follow instructions. Your treatment plan will include dietary and lifestyle adjustments as well as key supplements and herbal medicines to help your child start feeling better FAST.
Active Treatment & Symptom Resolution
Typically, if you are incorporating acupuncture as part of the therapy, you’ll return with your child for weekly visits for 1 to 2 months to ensure close support as your child begins to feel positive shifts. We want to make sure your treatment plan is yielding the expected results.
Transitional Care As Things Stabilize
Once we see stable improvements, we will begin to reduce the frequency of visits. This usually occurs after about 6-8 visits. Initially you’ll come in weekly, then as your condition improves the frequency becomes less. We re-evaluate your child’s case with you periodically and fine tune as needed until we achieve the desired results.
We’ll be here in case you ever want to bring your child in for a tune-up or to address other health concerns.
Of course, MANY of our patients do wish to continue with “ongoing maintenance” and we are happy to work that out with you, should that be your wish.
Taking Care Of Your Friends and Loved Ones
So, we very much look forward to helping YOUR friends, family, and loved ones on THEIR journey to a more joyful, energetic, purposeful life.
Common Questions & Answers About Our Treatment Program For Pediatrics
Does it hurt?
Our style is very gentle. The needles are extremely thin, and most of the time you won’t even feel them. We use lasers and other non-needle techniques for the kids. They don’t feel a thing.
Will I have to keep coming forever?
The vast majority of patients don’t need long-term maintenance. Once their condition is resolved, it stays that way.
Will I have to spend a lot of time bringing my child in for treatments?
Most of our patients are able to get great results with once-weekly visits that last no more than 30 minutes. And, we have evening and weekend times to make it easier for you. We can discuss this in more detail at your free consultation.
Can natural medicine REALLY help my child?
Absolutely. Your child’s body is capable of healing itself, especially when it has the nutritional support and specialized natural therapies we offer to help it get back on track. We’ve seen this firsthand in clinic over and over.
Will I have to subject my child to some kind of horrible, super-restrictive detox or elimination diet?
Absolutely NOT. Our program is all about setting you up to succeed. We find the 2 or 3 “key leverage points” in your child’s diet and work on those. No impossible to follow meal plans or detoxes here.
How long does it take to see results?
With children it is very common to see a shift after the very first treatment. Laser acupuncture is a very powerful way to stimulate endorphin release, which is the most powerful relaxing substance the body makes. And, a relaxed, calm nervous system is a precursor to healing on ALL levels.
What are my child’s chances of success?
Results vary, of course. That being said, over 60% of our patients report significant improvement within 4-6 weeks. However, your situation is unique and once we meet with you we will be able to give you our best estimate of time and prognosis of outcome.
