Treatment for children

While Japanese-style needling is gentle enough for many children, we also offer pediatric acupressure-massage (called "tui-na" in Chinese) and shonishin, a Japanese system that uses small tools to press, tap, and stroke acupuncture points and channels. These needle-free treatments are as effective as conventional acupuncture and can be used on infants to teens. We also commonly recommend herbal formulas to kids and can make dietary suggestions.
