Jennifer Monin - Pediatric Acupuncture Sebastopol

Pediatrics is one of the oldest specialties in Chinese medicine with specific diagnostics and treatments to address children's special needs.  Chinese medicine strengthens the developing immune system and often gives children the push they need to deal with illness on their own. 

 Children are much simpler than adults and since their disharmonies are usually more obvious and straightforward they have been found to respond well to this very gentle, non-invasive and safe medicine.   Chinese medicine works well as an alternative treatment to conventional medical approaches such as antibiotics and other prescription medications.  If imbalances can be cleared up in childhood, the way will be paved to a much healthier adulthood.

Over the years Jennifer has been the primary support for our son’s health issues which had been asthma, eczema and frequent colds. After a short series of treatments and following her nutritional recommendations, his symptoms have cleared. He now has a preventative treatment each season and his lungs are strong and skin is clear. We have been blessed to have her support our family.
