What is Pediatric Acupuncture?

Pediatric Acupuncture is specialized for newborns through the age of 13.

How Does it Work?

Older patients will receive needling, while younger patients may receive a non-invasive needling technique combined with magnetic therapy, light cupping, and moxa. Because pediatric patients are very yang in energy, they respond well to treatments, need shorter treatments and potentially less treatments than most adults.

How can Acupuncture Help?

Acupuncture can treat a plethora of childhood ailments including:

  • Sleep/Insomnia
  • Anxiety
  • Behavioral problems
  • Digestive disorders
  • Pain
  • Headaches
  • Asthma
  • Chronic Ear Infections
  • Chronic UTIs

What Are The Risks?

Acupuncture is a natural resolution for most patients. Most patients experience very little to no pain on insertion, although a small amount of bruising or slight swelling may occur.
