WHAT IS ACUPUNCTURE?
How Does It Help?
What is Pediatric Acupuncture?
Pediatric Acupuncture is a natural treatment approach using fine acupuncture needles called “taps” that stimulate healing, restore balance, and boost natural resiliency. In many cases, acupuncture points can be stimulated through acupressure and shoni shin (acupressure massage) in addition to or instead of acupuncture “taps”.
Because children respond so well to holistic treatment approaches, acupressure and acupuncture are very effective and enjoyable for the little ones ranging from newborn to teenagers!
Yohi is very passionate about providing a holistic lifestyle approach that includes training and coaching both parents and kiddos to create whole body well being.
This is done through herbal medicine, pediatric acupuncture, non-needle techniques such as acupressure, microcurrent, massage, or cupping, and nutritional counseling. The child’s age, temperament, and condition are considered prior to treatment to help ease the child into a relaxing visit. Children love acupuncture and usually leave the office feeling calm and happy!
How Does Acupuncture Help My Child?
Western pediatric care is often lacking in the ability to customize treatment based on each child’s individual needs; therefore, there is a growing demand for better quality pediatric care.
Pediatric treatment at Calma Care provides highly customized care and allows the practitioner to take into account the whole child’s health-physical, emotional, nutritional, and environmental-in order to bring about complete wellness. With growing awareness of the dangers and adverse side-effects of pharmaceutical drugs and surgical procedures, families are more inclined to search for treatment that is safe, natural and effective.
Herbal Medicine for Kids
Herbal Medicine has been a powerfully effective natural remedy for thousands of years. Therapeutic grade herbal formulas boast anti-inflammatory, immune boosting, and stress reducing properties that can be applied to a wide variety of health concerns.
The power of Medicinal herbs is a wonderful way to expedite and enhance your healing journey as it functions on both a cellular and energetic level.
At Calma Care we use the tincture form of Herbal Medicine which is a concentrated elixir. This concentrate makes it simple and easy to use on its own, or add it to hot water and date honey for a delicious and healthy treat!
We source all of our in-house herbal tinctures from reputable, safe, and research-based facilities. As a Board Certified Herbalist, Yohi offers both custom and pre-mixed formulas to address any health concern from sleep issues, stress and anxiety, hormonal imbalances, gynecology and fertility, frequent illness, allergies, pain, and so much more.
Herbal Therapy is a wonderful addition for kids suffering from chronic issues such as asthma, anxiety, sleep issues, digestive issues, and more!
Frequently Asked Questions
What if my child is not sick?
As a complement to conventional pediatric care, Pediatric care offers a non-invasive and medication-free method to keep a child in balance and healthy. This is done through regular well-visits, 4-12 times per year, which aim at maintaining health but also providing care before an illness requires emergency medical attention.
These visits are also useful in providing counseling to parents regarding their child’s development, diet, sleep, and behavioral issues, breastfeeding support, and more. In fact, children can start well-visits as early as a few weeks old, and to prevent or eliminate infant colic and reflux.
Is it safe for my kids?
Not only is it safe, it is highly preferable to treat kids with Acupuncture over using medications or even surgical procedures! Children deserve to learn the power of their bodies in the healing process and Yohi makes it a priority to empower and educate both the parents and kiddos about the techniques in/outside the office for complete wellness.
How does Pediatric Cupping work?
Kids can often experience stress/anxiety and even store it in their little bodies. This can lead to tense muscles, headaches, chronic illness, tummy aches, issues sleeping, and more.
At Calma Care, we use both suction and fire cupping (when appropriate)
What is Microcurrent therapy?
Microcurrent therapy is a gentle, non-invasive, and effective way to stimulate acupuncture points without the use of needles. Using a handheld device, an imperceptible pulse of microcurrent stimulates the acupuncture point for 5-20 seconds. Repeated 2-3 times per area, this therapy is comfortable for kids and adults who prefer a non-needle approach.
Microcurrent is also excellent for treatment of Turetz, Bell’s Palsy, Stroke Rehabilitation, and even Facial Rejuvenation!
