Q: ACUPUNCTURE CAN HELP CHILDREN!?
A: YES! Acupuncture has been used to treat children as long as this ancient holistic practice has been in existence. Pediatric acupuncturists are trained in specific needling techniques using hair thin needles rendering it virtually painless.
Q: BUT THERE IS NO WAY MY CHILD WILL SIT WITH NEEDLES FOR 30 MINUTES!
A: CORRECT! For young children a rapid needling technique is used, where the needle is inserted and immediately taken out. The needles are therefore only left in a matter of seconds.
Q: MY CHILD WON’T LIKE ACUPUNCTURE BECAUSE THEY ARE AFRAID OF NEEDLES.
A: Once your child has a chance to experience how painless and easy the treatments are, AND HOW THEY FEEL BETTER AFTER TREATMENT, they truely enjoy coming back for acupuncture and its benefits.
