Utilizing Traditional theories combined with current technological advances underscoring the causative factors within Autism, Dr. Kniskern applies appropriate diagnostic principles in defining each patient and their unique condition.

Over the past 9 years Dr. Kniskern has Pioneered Treatment Protocol for Autism and ADHD. Virtually all of our patients showed improvements in key areas as a result of this treatment (eye contact and cognitive functioning, expressive language skills, etc), here too experiencing dramatic developmental gains after only a few months of treatment.

Confidence and self-esteem blossomed and most showed less over-all anxiety. Additionally, all patients showed improvements in critical thinking and problem solving, social awareness and empathy, and/or fine motor skills and spatial relations.

Micro Current Really Does Work.
See What A Few Of Our Clients Say…

“Before we started Micro Current, my son just seemed ‘out to lunch’ and unaware of what was going on with everyone else in the room. Now he’s got all these funny comments he interjects into our conversations! His personality is emerging!”

-Erinn R. Mom of 10 year old with Asperger’s.

“We were at the end of our rope. It was like having a toddler. We had to do everything for her. Now after several months of Micro Current, for example, going to bed is a breeze. She brushes her teeth, gets her pajamas on without the struggle we use to endure.”

–Stephen R. Dad of 10 year old with Autism.

There are no two autistic or ADHD patients that are alike. The diagnostic tools of Chinese Medicine assist in determining the varied underlying issues that create the symptoms expressed in autism and individuals with attention deficits and hyperactivity.

For example, an autistic child who is unable to focus may have an excess phlegm condition that fogs the brain. A hyperactive child might have excess liver heat. These conditions can be treated at their root. Phlegm is often a function of deficient digestion, and acupuncture points directed at building the spleen and eliminating the phlegm help clear the mind. On the other hand the hyperactivity often seen in autistic patients and ADHD can usually be a condition of excess liver heat. A treatment administered to reduce the energy of the liver can help calm the individual.
