Pregnancy and Children
“Now the present collection of treatments is arranged by placing the treatments for women and children first, and those for husbands and the elderly afterward. The significance of this is that it venerates the root.” -Sun Simiao (581-682 AD)
Acupuncture and Chinese herbs can be done safely throughout pregnancy and childhood. Additionally, the craniosacral and myofascial unwinding, Dynamic Body Balancing, is a system that specializes in pregnancy, preparing women for labor and delivery, and helping infants and older children through structural imbalances derived from the structural condition of the mother, delivery, and childhood incidents and accidents.
Women can be gently supported through their pregnancy, help support their pregnancy, and reduce symptoms with acupuncture, Chinese herbs, and bodywork. Acupuncture and herbs can support breastfeeding and recovery.
Children are born vulnerable. Treatment can help them develop and be more resilient as well as support them through their adjustments to society. This is particularly the case with those with congenital disorders. Chinese herbs can help them recover from their intense emotions, and be able to focus.
Additionally, I work with children who have experienced trauma, through acupuncture, Chinese herbs, and somatic therapy.
I recommend that one to all parents are in treatment when treating a child. Children are so interconnected with their families that often their health and behavior are related to the imbalances of their parents. There is no shame in this; we all have adapted through generations to the things our parents and grandparents didn’t tell us about, yet are deep within their neuropsychology and behavioral patterns. Additionally, harmonizing the family’s healing and progression relieves the child of bearing full responsibility for adapting to the changes being asked of them in treatment and their adaptation to their family through that change. If this doesn’t seem possible to achieve, contact me.
Currently in the process of relocating my practice to Afton, Wyoming.
