Treatment plans may also include recommendations for herbal medicine, nutrition, or lifestyle advice.
Many parents are suprised to find that acupuncture for kids does not have to involve needles. There are many tools to help children holistically, including acupressure, pediatric tuina (a form of massage), gentle silicone cupping, moxabustion, and herbal medicine or nutrional advice among many others.
An herbal medicine consultation will include an in-depth look at your current health concerns as well as past medical history followed by a recommendation for herbs, supplements, and nutrition.
Microneedling or Collagen Induction Therapy is a non-surgical option to build collagen in order to address common skin concerns such as fine lines and wrinkles, uneven complexion, large pores, acne prone skin and scarring.
Although treatments are generally on the face, other areas such as chest or hands can be treated as well as stretchmarks and scars. The scalp can also be treated with microneedling to promote hair growth for hair thinning, balding, and bald spots due to alopecia.
A variety of serums are incorporated into the treatment including hyaluronic acid and apple stem cells.
A 10–15 minute phone conversation will help determine your needs and how our services may help you.
