Pediatric Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a wonderful medicine for children. It has a long and venerable history in Asia, and it is growing in popularity in the West. Pediatric acupuncture includes many gentle modalities such as NAET, contact needling, non-retention needling, shonishin (Japanese technique of gently stimulating the meridians) and massage.

Acupuncture is used to treat a wide variety of childhood problems, including:

Furthermore, acupuncture is effective for treating adolescents with acne, gynecological conditions (in girls), eating disorders, emotional problems and sports injuries.

The affect of acupuncture on young people can be profound. Research shows that children miss less school, sleep better and are more able to participate in extracurricular activities as a result of treatment.

    Pediatric Testimonial

    “My daughter has very bad seasonal allergies. She was on the maximum dosage of prescription medication and still suffering from itchy eyes and congestion. Now, after her second year of acupuncture treatments, she shows few outward symptoms. I am so pleased with her progress that my younger son began acupuncture allergy treatments this year.”
    Virginia C., mother of two children, ages 8 and 11
