Kids often times respond very well to Oriental medicine!
In our clinic, we perform acupuncture on children five years of age and older. Often times, they can receive additional benefit from Chinese herbs.
For children under the age of five, a Chinese herbal prescription is best (without the acupuncture).
We also train parents on pediatric massage and give specific dietary recommendations that can be life-changing for the child. Kids generally respond very well to treatment. Our theory is that they haven’t had as much stress as your average adult, therefore there’s less to sort out internally, leading to a faster response.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding treating children with Oriental Medicine, do not hesitate to ask us. We can give you our recommendations and then you can make an educated decision for your specific situation.
