Why Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a time-honored tradition of putting very fine needles just under the surface of the skin at specific points around the body. These points have been shown through modern technology to affect different aspects of the body, such as organs, muscles, hormones, and even brain activity. Stimulating these “acu-points”, promotes the body’s neurotransmitters to activate its own healing mechanisms. Simply put, acupuncture is effective for creating positive changes in the body.


Pediatric acupuncture can be extremely beneficial for:⁠

– In Toeing ⁠
– Cerebral Palsy ⁠
– Hypertonia and Hypotonia⁠
– Torticollis ⁠
– Toe Walking⁠
– Tension and more!

We don’t have to use needles!

For our patients that are uncomfortable with needles, we have a special needle-less option. Our acupuncturist uses a special FDA approved device which our patients have affectionately nicknamed “the magic wand”.

“The magic wand” painlessly delivers focused electrical current to the same acu-points that would normally be stimulated by needles. This electrical stimulation, replaces the needle with similar positive effects on the patient’s body.
