Treatments for Children (newborn to 12 years)

Children can benefit from Asian medicine as well! One of the cornerstones of traditional Asian pediatric medicine is a very effective bodywork technique known as Pediatric Tuina. This can be performed by the practitioner, but is also easy for the parents/caregivers to learn and do at home. Chinese herbs can also be safely administered orally or topically for children and our clinic stocks common pediatric formulas. Treatments for children may also include dietary recommendations, adjunct therapies, and even a small amount of acupuncture.

  • Initial assessment and treatment sessions take approximately 50-60 minutes.
  • Follow-up treatments take approximately 30-40 minutes.
  • Chinese herbs and additional modalities may be offered for an additional cost.

Qigong Classes

Meggan practicing Qigong

Qigong (pronounced "Chee Gung") is a Chinese word that means "energy cultivation" or "energy exercise." Qigong routines have been practiced in China for thousands of years in order to improve health and wellness. Many different styles of qigong exist but most utilize a combination of conscious movement, breath awareness and visualization. Meggan offers a variety of Qigong classes, workshops and presentations throughout the year. The qigong classes range from 3-hour weekend workshops to evening weeknight series. Meggan has been practicing qigong since 2001 and practicing yoga and meditation since 1998. She is a certificated qigong teacher through the Ling Gui International Qigong School which is based in Portland, OR.

Qigong Testimonial

As a Yoga and Tai Chi instructor I am keenly interested in Chinese medicine, but more importantly in the relationship and interaction of eastern and western medicine. In addition, it is important to understand the movements of Chinese exercises and what they are doing for one's body. To broaden my perspective I have so far taken two classes in Qigong from Meggan Baumgartner, Owner of Healing Point, LLC. What a wonderful experience. Meggan relates to every student in her classes and explains to them each posture of the exercise and its effect on the structures of the body. Her studies in Chinese medicine have given her the knowledge of the discipline, but her ability to pass that knowledge and benefit on to the participants is more than a learned response. It is her true love of career that benefits the activity and her natural ability to instruct others that makes attending her classes the most positive and enjoyable experience of learning. To enhance my health and help me to understand Chinese exercises and be a better instructor I plan on attending many more of Meggan's classes.
