ADD or ADHD? Help your child feel better

Mar 18,2013

Acupressure for ADHD and ADD is a new program for parents with children who have been diagnosed with attention deficit disorder (ADD) or attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Benefits of acupressure include stress reduction, relaxation and improved focus.

This two-session class is free for parents and guardians of children between the ages of 4 and 14. Each participant is asked to complete short surveys before and after the class about their experience of using acupressure, and their child’s response to receiving acupressure.

The class schedule offers flexibility for busy families, with multiple class times to choose from for each session. Registration is required, as space is limited to the first 30 qualifying participants.
