Pediatric Acupuncture (Shonishin)
Jennifer loves treating children, and Shonishin makes this both painless and fun. Sho-ni-shin is a needle-free way of treating infants and children for such illnesses as common colds, coughs, sore throats, asthma, chronic earaches, bed-wetting, insomnia, as well as behavioral and emotional challenges. Small metal tools stimulate the channels and acupuncture points without breaking the skin. Children respond quite quickly to acupuncture and pediatric herbal formulas. Regular shonishin treatments are a great way to boost a weak immune system in order to avoid the use of antibiotics and keep kids healthy and thriving.
Stress, anxiety, and trauma
Acupuncture is wonderful at treating stress and anxiety. Many individuals have the desire to either not use medications or to get off of them. Acupuncture can help regulate the body’s chemical balance naturally, with noticeable changes often after just one treatment. Acupuncture, when combined with psychotherapy, will often accelerate healing due to ones ability to handle and process intense emotions much easier.
Pregnancy and fertility
Along with kids, Jennifer also enjoys treating moms-to-be. Acupuncture can greatly increase the likelihood of becoming pregnant. Studies show that IVF in conjunction with regular acupuncture increases success rate by 40%-60%! Regular acupuncture throughout a pregnancy can ease some of the common symptoms of nausea, low back pain, and sleep disturbances, as well as prepare the body for the act of giving birth.
In addition to the above mentioned specialties, acupuncture is also wonderful at treating colds, flu, digestive issues, PMS, fatigue, insomnia, pain, headaches, arthritis, urinary tract infections, low immune system, emotional imbalances, and many others. We have wonderful anti-bacterial and anti-viral herbs that are great to try instead of antibiotics.
