Acupuncture Treatments for Kids
Kids do great with acupuncture
, especially when it doesn’t involve needles! I use a low powered (5mw, 635nm wavelength) laser to simulate acupoints — it doesn’t hurt at all, and kids of any age tend to respond dramatically.I’ve treated infants with colic, toddlers with stomachaches and allergies, and grade school kids with headaches and anxiety. The kids tend to have a lot of energy to work with and often respond quickly.
The number of teenagers and even middle schoolers getting put on anti-anxiety and anti-depressant medications continues to increase, and these kids deserve a chance to experience what it’s like to be relaxed, balanced, and pain free without medications if possible.
If you know any kids that are suffering and not responding to conventional medicine, let their parents know that I can do very effective acupuncture WITHOUT ANY NEEDLES NECESSARY!
