Acupuncture for babies, children and teenagers

Acupuncture is a fantastic therapy for babies through to teenagers.  A child is delicate and under-developed and therefore not able to regulate their Qi like adults, this can be seen in the way they can quickly become upset over something trivial or become unwell suddenly.  Acupuncture is not only benefits children get over ailments, it is excellent for maintaining health and preventing disease and there are no side-effects.

What happens in an appointment?

Acupuncture tends to be tolerated, even enjoyed in babies and toddlers, especially where they are not picking up signs of fear from adults!  But as they get more conscious of their world some are unsure, I use tiny needles and have been trained to use a quick and painless technique.  However, it’s not just about acupuncture, press seeds on acupoints or other therapies such as tui-na/massage, and moxa are all frequently used.  As for adults, dietary advice for children is a very important part of maximizing the effectiveness of treatment.
