Supporting our children with a natural approach
How can Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine be effective for our kids?
Chinese medicine can very very useful for kids of all ages, from babies to adolescents. In our practice we use a range of treatments including nutritional medicine and Chinese medicine, generally in patent form that is much more tasty for the little ones! Children generally respond very quickly to treatment. In certain situation, not many, acupuncture may be offered to older kids, if this is the case, fine acupuncture pins are left in for minutes only and are very superficial, where most children will say they can’t feel anything at all! Cupping is also a very gentle approach for treatment when required.
