You’re here today because you have been thinking about how and if acupuncture can help your child. Well, you’re in the right spot!
The acupuncture needles that I use on kids are much thinner than the ones I use in a typical adult session. It’s as thin as a strand of your hair. They may or may not feel anything when I use them. Kids have so much Qi in them that they don’t typically need a session that is as long as an adult would need. In addition, when I speak with kids, I use the phrase “Acu Taps.” This phrase immediately lets them know that it’s just taps. Acu Taps are only used if your child gives me permission to use it. I am on your child’s TEAM. Therefore, if you child says that he/she doesn’t want any needles. It’s okay. I have other techniques that I could use that can be just as effective as using Acu Taps such as tui na (Chinese massage), acupressure, gua sha, moxibustion, and pointer plus. In addition, I can make recommendations outside of their in office treatment to further optimize their health.
Below is a short list of some of the health challenges that Acupuncture has helped many kids with:
