My son is an active boy. Admittedly, he has some focus and attention issues that we are dealing with. And, the reasons I love bringing him to Charlotte are many in number. Charlotte is patient and gentle and truly knows how to speak to him to get him to describe what’s really bothering him. We initially came to Charlotte to help with his allergy issues but she has helped us to help him in so many other areas as well.
She talks about the importance of a “happy gut” even as it relates to the allergy issues. It’s really all common sense but not the way our society generally thinks and certainly not the way many of us (myself included) were raised. She shows him some things he can do to self soothe for headaches and such. She has also shown me some stretching and massaging that I can do to help him — and he loves to have it done! She prescribes various chinese herbs for his particular symptoms but all the while focusing on the probiotics and enzymes needed for the happy gut. She even taught him how to swallow the pills and capsules. I only wish I had had Charlotte to teach my oldest son how to swallow pills — she did a much better job than me! My son always feels significantly better after a treatment with Charlotte and it’s truly amazing to me that despite his generally hyper nature that she can get him to be calm and still for the treatment. When I asked him why he likes going to see Ms. Charlotte for acupuncture he said,
- “I like everything about the acupuncture – especially the needles – I really like the needles.”
- “It relaxes me.”
- “If my energy is up and I’m really hyper, the needles help me to relax.”
