Children's Disorders & Kids Health
Treatment with Chiropractic, Craniosacral Therapy and Acupuncture
At Bliss Clinic we approach children's disorders from different angles- all with gentle, non-invasive treatments which assist the body's natural ability to recover from illnesses. We examine and treat the spine and the body with chiropractic, craniosacral therapy and acupuncture techniques. (Pleasant laser acupuncture for kids.)
A healthy functioning spine is a prerequisite for child health. The body of a child goes through many changes: from the trauma of birth, to the stresses of constant growth to everyday tumbles and falls. These micro- and macrotraumas affect the structures and functioning of growing children's bodies, particularly the muscles, joints and nerves of the spinal column. Ensuring optimal spinal function and alignment sets a healthy stage for future growth and development.
Safe and Gentle Treatments
Both chiropractic and craniosacral therapy treatments balance the spine and the delicate structures of the nervous system. These tissues include spinal muscles, joints and nerves as well as the tissues covering the brain and peripheral nervous system. We treat many orthopedic problems of the arms and legs as well as various problems of digestion and internal organ functioning. Correction of faulty posture is an important part of most treatment plans as optimal health can never be fully achieved in the presence of poor posture or a or weakened spine.
So many childhood illnesses and conditions can, in fact, be managed safely and effectively without the use of drugs or surgery. All too often, people are not aware of this fact. People turn to Bliss Clinic for alternatives when their children continue to be sick and they have not found satisfaction with traditional medical methods.
Fortunately, a growing number of parents see the importance of early preventative care for their children and bring them in for annual or semi-annual spinal check-ups etc.

"Remove interference and the body heals itself"
Our treatment methods do not primarily ‘treat symptoms' nor are they designed to cure particular diseases. Their chief effect is by helping the body and its immune system to work properly so the body is able to heal itself- as it is designed to do normally. Identifying and removing negative "stressors" (physical, chemical, emotional) from the body whilst at the same time promoting a healthy lifestyle is a core principle of our practice. We understand that ‘by removing interference(s) the body can heal itself'.
Chiropractic, craniosacral therapy and acupuncture are safe, advanced, natural sciences. They are also ‘arts' in that they demand highly-developed skill to practice . At Bliss Clinic we often combine these methods depending on the case and the patient's particular needs. Examination usually starts with one of our chiropractors who then recommends the appropriate treatment strategy.
