Treating Children

People often find it surprising that babies and children come for treatment, but they respond very well to acupuncture and there are options for those who really do not want needles. A Chinese herb called Moxa can be used on acupuncture points as can acupressure and Tuina, which is a type of massage. I have seen treatment help teenagers with insomnia, anxiety and menstrual issues and younger children with a wide range of issues from digestive problems, to bed wetting, growing pains and reducing a temperature. Children tend to respond quickly to treatment and it can offer new options to parents who wish to try an alternative to Western medicine or something to work alongside it.
