Children and teens today face stressors unlike any other generation. Trauma, anxiety, social isolation, chronic illness, pain, and environmental toxins demand a new approach to pediatric care.

Join UCSF experts to learn how we’re taking an integrative approach that treats the whole child, rather than just a set of symptoms. Using techniques ranging from acupuncture to hypnotherapy to massage, these treatments not only improve quality of life for our patients, but also create a better healing environment for kids.
