Gentle Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine for Children

What treatments are available for children?

Treating children is very different from treating adults. For a start, children are very delicate. It is easy for various factors to disturb their Qi, however children usually respond quicker to treatments than do adults.

Chinese medicine can provide effective treatment options for many childhood problems including:

  • Colic and Digestive upsets
  • Recurrent coughs and colds
  • Earaches and recurrent ear infections
  • Digestive issues and constipation
  • Eczema
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Migraines
  • and more...

We use a gentle acupuncture technique specifically designed for children. The treatment is usually very quick, with very few needles used.  This can be combined with a natural healing technique that involves gentle skin rubbing, tapping and acupressure to stimulate various acupuncture points to correct imbalances or remove blockages of Qi that may cause various childhood disorders. Gentle moxibustion may also be used to stimulate digestive energy and cupping can be great especially for older children with upper respiratory disorders.

Laser acupuncture is also available as a needle free option.
