Understanding your child’s changing growth and developmental milestones is an important part of parenting.
Lack of hormones can have many different effects on a child, so it is very important to address immediately if you feel your child is having growth/hormone issues.
Many conditions that involve hormone imbalance or hormone irregularity can be successfully taken care of with the correct treatment.
As infants and children progress through a series of growth changes, they may encounter common physical or emotional challenges. Kids grow at their own pace. Genetics, gender, nutrition, physical activity, health problems, environment and hormones all play a role in a child’s height and weight and many of these can vary widely from family to family.
Symptoms in children include an immature face (looking much younger than his/her peers), a chubby body build, impaired hair growth, delayed puberty. Many conditions that involve hormone imbalance or irregularity can be successfully taken care of with the correct treatment. With our acupuncture treatments, we relax the nervous system, nourish hormones, balance emotions, along with improving energy and blood flow.
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 was being treated for a rare genetic disorder where his pituitary was not fully grown and this resulted in lack of production of growth hormone. He had symptoms of weight loss, lack of growth for a male of his age. He had to take injections of synthetic GH to increase his levels. His sleep, mood and appetite were all negatively affected. Through the acupuncture treatments, it helped to nourish his pituitary gland, helped his overall energy level and appetite. He is now able to have a full time job, works out with a trainer and mood is much more balanced.”

“For several years, we went to several doctors to try and figure out why my daughter’s symptoms of night sweats, insomnia, mood swings, increased appetite and irritability were happening. Thankfully we found a wonderful doctor who tested her for her pituitary and discovered that her growth hormone was too high. It turned out to be a pituitary adenoma which needed to be removed. We then started acupuncture to help with the many symptoms that were still happening because the surgeries were not completely successful. Now that she has been coming for a few years, her mood, appetite and sleep has greatly improved AND her hormone levels are practically normal! She also had thyroid nodules that are completely gone. Thankful for AWS and the amazing treatments.”
