Pediatrics

While we all can take advantage of natural and preventative medicine, it is our children who might reap the most benefits. And Chinese medicine is such a medicine! It has been used to treatchildren's common ailments for many centuries using safe, natural, and proven techniques.

Children's bodies are not yet compromised by chronic stress, exposure to toxins and poor life habits, but they have their own challenges. Their digestive and nervous systems are not fully developed. Energetic pathways are just beginning to form. Children who eat well, play outside, and live in healthy environment, do not need strong medications when they get sick. They respond quickly to the subtle methods of Chinese medicine when medical professionals and parents work together children are healthy and happy.

At the Attentive Dragon we help children in a safe, comfortable environment atmosphere through:

  • Japanese pediatric massage Shonishin*
  • Food therapy
  • Acupressure and magnetic therapy
  • Herbal medicine (pediatric grade tinctures)
  • Education
  • Gentle pediatric style acupuncture for receptive children.

*Shonishin is a type of acupressure and massage developed over 400 years ago in Japan specifically for the treatment of children. It is considered essential for kids in Japan! The treatment consists of gentle pressing, rubbing, tapping and brushing the skin with special silver and copper tools. The practitioner activates acupuncture points and energy pathways to increase your child's healing and stimulate the child’s growth and development. Shonishin  can be used for acute or chronic conditions, improving your child's constitution and preventing illness.
