Children & Babies
Treating Children & Teens with Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine
Babies from 3 months old can be treated, children and teenagers – and of course adults.
The acupuncture treatment itself for young children is very quick, the needles are much less painful than an immunisation, and it is much less of a shock for the child! The fine, sterile needles are inserted into the skin for about a minute. This generally takes place whilst the child is sitting on mum or dads lap. Some children have a little cry, but it is over so fast, they generally stop even before they have begun! Kids tend to be relaxed and happy to play with toys or to blow raspberries whilst being treated.
A tailored diagnosis and treatment will be given for your child to treat the presenting problem.
Due to new advertising standards, I am unable to list the range of treatments that I believe Chinese Medicine can help with. If you would like to discuss treatment with me, please call me on 01245 359 081
Number of treatments:
Some conditions will require 4 – 10 treatments, and some may need much more. This is dependant on the type of illness, the age of the child and the length of time they have been unwell. This would be discussed with you on your first visit.
