Autism Spectrum Disorder is a developmental disorder that impacts the nervous system and impairs the ability to communicate and interact.
Because it is a spectrum disorder, the range of symptoms can vary from person to person.
With proper treatment, relaxing the nervous system has a positive effect on influencing behaviors.
There is no one cause of Autism Spectrum Disorder. Research suggests that autism develops from a combination of genetic and nongenetic, or environmental influences. There may also be co-occurring conditions that can often come with autism spectrum disorder, they include, but are not limited to, anxiety, ADHD, bipolar disorder, clinical depression, down syndrome, eating disorders, gastrointestinal symptoms, developmental delays, language display, speech disorder, motor difficulties, OCD, seizures or epilepsy, sleep problems, or Tourette’s syndrome.
Autism is a Spectrum Disorder, meaning the range of symptoms can vary greatly from person to person. Common symptoms include anxiety with or difficulty with social interactions, obsessive interests, repetitive behaviors, finding it difficult to understand others, seeming blunt, or having a difficult time expressing how you feel. With the proper treatments, relaxing the nervous system has a positive effect on influencing behaviors.
At Acupuncture Wellness Services, we use a combination of modalities and techniques to regulate the flow of energy in the body to achieve outstanding results. The extensive training and experience of our practitioners enables them to successfully blend time-tested and ancient treatment protocols with modern and sophisticated therapies. One of the greatest benefits of our procedure is the ability to detect and correct energetic sensitivities to foods and the environment that might be creating symptoms in your body. Each patient is treated individually, and so the combination of techniques is determined at the time of evaluation. Our treatments integrate well with western medicine, chiropractic, massage therapy, occupational therapy, dental work and nutritional healing.
“My son has been seeing Dr Nicole since he is 8 years old. When we first started care, he was difficult to control, sometimes screaming, toe-walking, obsessive, combative at times. It took time, but it was remarkable how much he healed with the NAET treatments. Nicole didn’t even have to use needles on him (it would have been impossible for him to sit still). And now he is a teen and still comes for treatment. His life, and ours, got better and better as the years have passed. He loves coming in for treatment and the staff is incredible with him.”

“We started treatment with Dr Nicole about 5 years ago. Our son was already a young teen and we had already tried so many things to help with autism. Dr Nicole and Jenn mainly treat him for his immune system, which helps his behavior so much. Very thankful we found Acupuncture Wellness!”
