The Local Healer's goal is to respect and honor where your child is at, so each treatment will be customized to their needs. After considering the physical, mental and emotional health, as well as nutritional and environmental variables associated with your child's complaint, TLH may use pediatric acupuncture but can also provide needle-free treatments for children. These types of treatments include: cold laser or piezo pen at acupuncture points, soft silicone cupping treatment, guasha (gentle scraping), tuina (massage), medical Qigong (similar to gentle cranial sacral therapy), essential oil therapy, Chinese herbal consult and lifestyle/dietary counseling.
