Children and Acupuncture

Somebody might say: children and needles? What are you talking about?! I'm not taking my kids for acupuncture! At the same time there is a lot of research showing that acupuncture is extremely helpful for the very conditions many parents struggle with. These include persistent colds, cough, trouble sleeping, problems with digestion even learning difficulties and problems with concentration. So the question is, can children even very young, receive great benefits of acupuncture without scaring them with needles? The answer is yes. Unfortunately this technique is not widely used and therefore not many people heard of it. This is electronic acupuncture. Special noninvasive instruments used with gentle electric current which effectively stimulate acupuncture points without any pain. We, at the Center for integrative medicine have been using this technique for just over 10 years. During this time we were able to improve it and add a lot of our own developments. Resulting treatment method we call the "Intrepid therapy".


Intrepid therapy includes effective point selection based on electronic acupuncture, traditional acupuncture and Auricular therapy. Treatments are based on and controlled by a sophisticated computer diagnostic system. This innovation the Intrepid therapy is a valuable treatment option not only for kids but for the adults with all kinds of health issues as well. So don't put off health problems which been bothering you or your kids and go for a new type of acupuncture.


Great Additional benefit: Because Intrepid therapy is so effective and takes much less time to perform than regular acupuncture, over the course of treatment our patients save a substantial amount of money.
