The same care is now available for your children (ages 0 to 12) when you are looking for natural solutions for your child's illnesses or chronic conditions.

What it is

Our integrative medicine for children uses gentle, safe, and effective holistic treatment options to help restore a child's health and prevent future illness. A child's treatment may include the following: 

  • acupoint therapy (lasers, warming methods, tens)
  • acupuncture
  • acupressure
  • Chinese pediatric massage (pediatric tuina)
  • dietary therapy
  • herbal medicine
  • Japanese acupuncture (Shonishin)
  • lifestyle changes.

What to expect

During the initial 30-minute visit we will discuss your child’s health history and current concerns, as well as recommended treatment options.  This visit will also include an initial treatment that is agreed upon and comfortable for both you and your child. Your Penny George Institute for Health and Healing (PGIHH) pediatric provider will help you navigate the road to wellness and give you tools to use at home that will help keep your whole family healthy.
