Kids can benefit from acupuncture and moxibustion too.
Scared of needles? No problem! I use a variety of methods on children to stimulate their Acupoints – tuning forks, heat, acupressure or Gua Sha (light scraping of the skin using friction). Many children love the Qi sensation of acupuncture, just like adults do!
Sometimes I give kids herbs and make dietary suggestions to complement the acupoint stimulation.
Children usually respond faster than adults, tending to improve quickly in many cases. They usually require fewer needles and have shorter treatment time so appointments for kids are only half an hour instead of the usual hour appointments for adults.
