We All Want The Best For Our Children

What Better Way Than Their Health?


Acupuncture isn’t just for adults! They’re for kids too!  Nowadays, growing up in this generation can be a bit more challenging. With more competition, more pollution, and more injuries, our children’s health is experiencing stress on a whole new level.  As parents, we want the best for our children and as the world becomes more aware of the side effects of prescription drugs and pharmaceuticals, parents are looking for an alternate method to help their kids.

Emmie V. is a very active 8 year old. From ballet to biking, Emmie likes to spend most of her time outdoors with nature. However, her allergies, asthma and the smoke from the fires has made it difficult for her to enjoy. Emmie gets Acupuncture to help improve the quality of oxygen in her blood circulation, to strengthen her immune system, and for her body to produce more white blood cells to help prevent any sensitive reaction she has with her allergies and the smoke. Acupuncture will allow fresh white blood cells to circulate to the nose, eyes, sinuses and throat area. White blood cells are the cells of the immune system that are involved in protecting the body against both infectious disease and foreign invaders. Blood circulation to the nose and throat area will also reduce inflammation and constriction of the wind tunnel that will allow air to flow more freely.

Ryan loves to live his life on the edge and to the fullest. Whether its doing flips on the trampoline or wrestling with his older brother, he's always pushing his limits and keeping his mother worried because she never knows how he is going to hurt himself next. While at his baseball game, sliding to clear a run, he happened to roll his ankle and his mother immediately knew what to do next. Marcey, Ryan's mother, immediately rushed him to Eastern Medical Center to have Teresa Shen relieve the pain and pressure in his ankle through Acupuncture. When it comes to working with children, Shen knows how to make them smile. She took her time to get to know Ryan and to build a trust with him allowing her to perform Acupuncture for his ankle injury.

Our Acupuncturist are kid friendly creating a comfortable environment for them is what they do best

Before performing any treatment on Ryan, Shen took her time to make sure Ryan was comfortable with Acupuncture. Shen knows that a child's first experience with Acupuncture is crucial.

Ryan is getting Acupuncture to help with the swelling and to reduce the pain that he is feeling in his ankle. Acupuncture is able to stimulate the pain receptors to bring attention to the body's natural healing system by concentrating blood flow to the ankle. Fresh red blood cells and white blood cells will carry Serotonin and Endorphins which are the body's natural pain killers to help with the swelling, reduce the pain, and repair torn muscle fibers in the ankle. Acupuncture will accelerate Ryan's recovery for him to quickly get back to his crazy lifestyle.

Shen interacts with Ryan to make sure he stays comfortable with the needles in his foot and ankle.

After Ryan's Acupuncture treatment, he felt minimal pain in his ankle. He is very happy with Shen and is confident that she can further help him with his recovery. Ryan will be returning shortly to get more Acupuncture at Eastern Medical Center.

Eastern Medical Center and Acupuncture is great for kids health

Ryan is feeling pretty great and almost pain free from his Acupuncture treatment.

Shane S. and his whole entire family grew up watching and playing sports. During baseball season, Shane would often go to San Francisco to watch the Giants play with his father. This is where Shane's love and interest for sports sparked. Shane currently is playing baseball and basketball for his middle school and is currently looking for a team to play football on. While playing a basketball game, Shane happened to hurt his wrist guarding an opponent. Shane's father knew immediately that Acupuncture can help his son with the swelling and the pain in his wrist.

Before Shane gets his treatment, Dr. Jax Chou must understand the situation and how the injury occurred.

After taking his time to understand what type of injury Shane had, Dr. Jax Chou was able to help Shane with the swelling and pain through Acupressure and Acupuncture. As blood stays stagnant after an injury, Acupuncture is able to remove blockages from the blood channels for blood to flow which allows the body to circulate its own natural healing chemicals. These natural healing chemicals contain such things as nutrients to help aid the repair of the wrist and natural pain killers to ease pain in the pain receptors. Dr. Chou experience and expertise with Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture was able to quickly get Shane back to playing the sports he loves to play.
