CHILDRENAcupuncture can also be very beneficial for children and babies.
They generally respond very quickly to acupuncture and the needles used are much shorter and finer than those used for adults.
Treatment time is greatly reduced and for children under 8 years the needles are not in place for more than a few seconds. Very often there is no discomfort from the needles at all.
"I recently treated a 16 month old child while he slept, he didn't even wake up!"
Common conditions in children which respond well to acupuncture include:
- Chronic cough
- Ear infections
- Food intolerances/allergies
- Bed wetting
- Sleep problems
