Acupuncture offers a safe, natural & effective approach to pediatric care
We treat conditions in infants to young adults that include frequent colds, flu, cough, allergies and asthma, skin conditions such as rashes and eczema, hyperactive tendencies, insomnia, and digestive distress.
There is no age limit for children to receive acupuncture. Newborns, infants, toddlers and children can all get acupuncture. The retention time is usually very quick for newborns up to around 5 years of age. The technique is usually in and out. For older children a retention time of 5-10 minutes is enough for an effective treatment as children’s nervous systems respond much faster than an adult’s.
For young babies and children who are sensitive to acupuncture, we do offer non-invasive healing modalities, such as massage, acupressure, Gua sha, cupping, herbal and dietary counseling.
We offer a complimentary 10 minute phone consultation for parents who would like to see if Chinese Medicine can help with their child’s condition.

Allergies, colds, congestion
Constipation, diarrhea, abdominal pain, IBS
Ear infections, ear pain, clogged ears
Eczema, hives, rashes

I have been to see Dr Chen for both myself and my children regularly. She was beyond effective for my children as they battled flu season.
