Whether it is a common cold, digestive disturbances, bed wetting, or night terrors that your child is experiencing Franklin Family Acupuncture has Acupuncture, Herbal Therapy, and Food Therapy to help in all cases.

However, in other parts of the world Oriental Medicine is considered the first, most effective, and safest choice when correcting these same conditions.
We are VERY proud of our ADD/ADHD Wellness Program. We will never look at your child as a disease! They are an individual with an individual's needs. Franklin Family Acupuncture takes knowledge from Oriental Medicine's Five Element Philosophy to help you understand why you're child has the personality that he or she has and how best to relate to them. We will also be teaching the child how to become more well rounded in their personality and how to relate to others around them. Every child has a unique personality and deserves better than the "one size fits all" approach when treating their attention difficulties.
Oriental Medicine looks at Allergies very simply, as a deficiency in the immune system. The approach taken at Franklin Family Acupuncture is to create a food plan that takes away the foods causing the allergies while implementing foods that will boost the immune system. Acupuncture and Herbal Therapy are also critical in enhancing a child's immune system.
Today 1 in 88 children fall on the Autism spectrum.

Franklin Family Acupuncture will tailor a food plan specific for your child's individual needs.
Everyone deserves to be happy in life. That is especially true in the case of a child. When working with a child that is dealing with depression, Franklin Family Acupuncture will use Oriental Medicine, Five Element Philosophy and other stress relieving therapies to help bring the light back into that child's eyes. Because the family dynamic is so important when working with a depressed child, we will use Five Element Philosophy to improve the relationship between family members if needed. Franklin Family Acupuncture is very willing to collaborate with any other Health Care professional that may also be working to help that child.

Many people do not know that Acupuncture is not just to help correct specific conditions. It can also be used to keep a person healthy and prevent illness. Franklin Family Acupuncture always suggests to patients that they come back for the occasional treatment as a way to make sure their health is continuing in the right direction. During your Preventative Acupuncture session we will not only use acupuncture but also take a look into the food that you are eating. Many times just having someone to report back to occasionally keeps a person on a healthy path.
