New York, NY (PRWEB) December 08, 2013
Carla Gervasio, L.Ac., founder and licensed acupuncturist of Urban Wellness Acupuncture, will be providing information on Children’s Programs for Patients with ADD/ADHD to parents and caregivers of children with special needs at the upcoming New York City Special Needs Expo. The event will be held at the Metropolitan Pavilion in Manhattan on Sunday, December 8. The hours of the event are 10:00am – 5:00pm. Admission is free.
Recently featured on NY1 Urban Wellness Acupuncture treats children with Attention Disorders. Ms. Gervasio began this career path after searching for options to help her own son and found that alternative therapies including acupuncture were the answer. “Because I’ve experienced this path myself, I just find that it’s my responsibility to try to share this information with parents and give them an understanding that there are other options that not only could compliment their current traditional approach, but also could be an alternative,” said Gervasio.
A parent, Kim Sherman says “the balance of medication and alternative therapies are the magic combination for her son. He is a calmer, more focused and overall happier child.” But she and Gervasio say they understand the struggles parents face when looking for solutions and encourage families to explore all options because finding the sweet spot that works for your child came can be as calming as the therapies themselves.
In addition to treating attention issues, acupuncture helps children also experience a reduction in side effects from traditional medications. Ms. Gervasio is a licensed practitioner in NY and CT and holds a Master of Sciences in Traditional Oriental Medicine.
