At the Australian Centre for Natural Medicine we have been providing pain free and needle free treatment for babies and children for over 20 years.
Treatment for paediatrics, 1 month old to 12 years old, is gentle and relaxing. Our practitioners utilise Shonishin – Shonishin is a gentle brushing of the skin with a silver disk along the lines of the meridians. Shonishin has been used in Japan for over a 1000 years to support a return to health and reduction of symptoms.
We offer services for children suffering from:
Allergies and sensitivities
Tendency to recurrent infections e.g. tonsillitis, ear infections, styes etc
We offer services for babies suffering from:
Failure to thrive
Colic or digestive disturbance
Chronic diarrhoea and constipation
Immune conditions – recurrent infections
Our treatments are brief 5 – 20 minutes and tailored to each child’s needs and tolerance. The treatment is natural, pain free and risk free. Because treatment is non-invasive it can be used in conjunction with medical procedures and interventions like medication. Treatment principles are based on building and harmonising the imbalances that may be causing or contributing to your child’s symptoms and discomfort.
Our Children’s service treatment approaches are formed upon Eastern Medical philosophy, offering an alternative theoretical understanding of the body mechanisms and health issues in relation to the needs of a growing body which influences the internal balances.
Practitioners seek to understand both the internal and external factors affecting this balance. With this framework in mind practitioners provide suggestions for at home care to support long term changes and outcomes.
If you are interested in booking treatment for your child or want to know more please feel free to contact Australian Centre for Natural Medicine on 07 55755300 during office hours or email us an enquiry.
We look forward to being of service.
