Treating babies and children

Every child is entitled to the healthiest body possible. Chinese Medicine recognizes the specific differences between children and adults. Jasmine has advanced training in pediatric medicine, a field of specialty within Traditional Chinese Medicine. She is trained in infant massage, known as Tui Na. Jasmine also practices Shoni-Shin, a pediatric technique from Japan that uses small tools to gently stimulate acupuncture points and meridians on young children. These non-invasive treatments "make it feel better" and provide powerful healing for most childhood ailments. Babies respond rapidly to gentle massage, nutritional supplements and dietary changes. Children enjoy their visits and quickly regain their vitality.
