Easing Back to School

Easing Back into School with Paediatric Acupuncture & TCM.png

As summer comes to an end and the kids head back to school there may be concerns about your child's ability to focus in class and their overall health throughout the year. Acupuncture and TCM have been proven to help with cognition and behaviour as well as boost immunity.


Cognition and Behaviour [1]

Children also regularly come in for treatment because they are having trouble focusing in school or regulating their emotions. A number of patterns of disharmony can manifest in concentration or behavioural difficulties, and pediatric bodywork, often along with herbal treatments or dietary changes, can be very beneficial in resolving these disharmonies.

Immunity [2]

Recurrent infections are another reason that parents bring their children in for treatment. Overall immunity can be boosted with monthly preventative treatments, and treatment applied in the course of a cold or cough can help to resolve symptoms more readily. Also, children who have a recurrent ear or sinus infections may have restrictions in the craniosacral system that affect proper drainage. Peadiatric acupuncture and herbal medicine can also help to regulate the immune system to resolve or improve childhood eczema, asthma and allergies.
