Children and Acupuncture
Children can be greatly helped with acupuncture and respond remarkably well. The biggest obstacle is the fear of needles, often the parent’s fear, not the child’s. If parents are confident of the treatment then children are generally happy to try it. But if not, then laser acupuncture is a painless alternative. The needles used are made of stainless steel and are very thin so the insertion is very gentle and often totally painless. You know it is painless when a child says “Is it in?” after the insertion.
See the page on Acupuncture Evidence Project to find out which conditions are most successfully treated with acupuncture.
