Why Your Teen Needs Acupuncture

By Jenna Aquilina MAcOM, Dipl.Ac, L.Ac

Do you remember what your tween and teenage years were like?  Don’t you wish you would have had access to the calming, balancing and healing benefits of acupuncture back then?  

Can acupuncture help your teen through this transformative time in life?  Yes! Acupuncture can help your tween or teen in multiple ways and provide them with a calming experience amidst the chaos of the world.  

Acupuncture is under utilized for helping teens and tweens, and we want to change that by helping to get the word out.  Acupuncture provides a safe, drug free, natural solution to help your teen.   

 Regular, consistent acupuncture can help your tween or teen with:  

  • hormonal balance, PMS and menstrual pain or other issues

  • sleep issues and insomnia

  • headaches and migraines

  • emotional balance, mood and behavior

  • anxiety and depression

  • learning and focus

  • digestive wellness

  • stress reduction

Acupuncture balances the nervous system and brain chemistry helping to relieve stress, anxiety, depression, mood issues and stress that could lead them to self medicate in other ways. It’s hard enough being a teen these days, we want to provide all the support and resources possible for well-being and positive growth toward adulthood.  At ilumina Healing Sanctuary, we look at the whole person and give individualized treatment sessions that provides a quiet, nurturing space for teens and tweens.
