Acupuncture for Children

Tiny needles are inserted and retained for a short time in older children, while for toddlers they are inserted and then quickly removed. Children are primarily yang in nature, so they respond faster than adults. However, because their organs and immune system are not fully developed, they are more vulnerable to disease and illnesses. They get sick quickly but also recover rapidly.

Acupuncture is a drug-free way to improve immunity and speed up recovery from disease. It has the ability to reduce pathogenic factors retained in the body. Some common diseases acupuncture can treat include digestive disorders, food retention, diarrhea, constipation, lung disorders such as asthma and pneumonia, fever, minor post-immunization reactions, viruses, emotional disorders, emotional and physical trauma, insomnia, bed-wetting, night terrors, anxiety, depression, and autism.
