Pediatric Techniques

Let's be honest...most kids don't like doctor visits.  They often have to be dragged, kicking and screaming into the office (at worst) or elaborately bribed (at best).  Most kids have an inherent fear of needles and white coats.


At Chattanooga Holistic Medicine we provide a kid-friendly treatment area with plenty of toys and prizes and even padded floors.  We use a needle-free Japanese technique called Shonishin to treat most cases.  Shonishin uses small tools to stimulate the acupoints on the skin's surface.  It is just as effective as using needles and the kids all love it.


Common pediatric conditions that we treat include:

  • Asthma
  • Eczema
  • Allergies
  • Hives/Rashes
  • Upper Respiratory Infections (URI)
  • Ear Infections
  • Sleep Problems
  • Bed Wetting
  • Diarrhea/Constipation
  • Behavioral Problems
