Pediatric Acupuncture

Some people are unaware that babies and children can be treated using acupuncture. In China it has been used for thousands of years to improve children’s health and aid recovery from a wide range of illnesses and medical conditions. It is considered a specialty, and requires specialist training and knowledge due to the differences in children’s physiology, pathology & semiotics. Acupuncture can help avoid or reduce the need for medication in many cases and can work safely in conjunction with conventional medicine, where a combined approach is appropriate for the child. As a practitioner of Paediatrics it’s amazing to see the effects that acupuncture can bring when working with children’s conditions. Please see below for just some of the conditions I have seen & treated in our clinic.
