Asthma & Allergies
Asthma is the most common chronic disease of childhood, and often begins before the age of 5.
Asthma triggers can cause wheezing attacks, coughing, shortness of breath, and tightness in your chest.
Asthma attacks can come on gradually or suddenly, and sometimes can be life threatening, so getting the proper treatment for your child is necessary.
Asthma in children is a long-term lung disease which causes airways to become inflamed and narrow. This can lead to a variety of symptoms. When symptoms get worse than usual, this is called an asthma attack, or flare-up. In children who have sensitive airways, asthma symptoms can be triggered by breathing in substances called allergens or triggers.
Asthma has similar symptoms as other childhood conditions so it can be difficult to diagnose at first. Symptoms can range from mild to severe, they may happen often or occasionally. Common symptoms of asthma in children include, chest tightness, coughing - especially at night or early morning, breathing problems, feeling fatigued, dark circles under eyes, irritability, wheezing, or trouble eating. Asthma attacks can come on gradually or suddenly, and sometimes can be life threatening so receiving proper treatment is crucial.
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.
