Acupuncture for Children
Acupuncture for children has helped with a wide range of childhood issues. Parents choose acupuncture and Chinese medicine because it is gentle, safe, and works without medications. For too many issues, medications may not work or have undesirable side effects. Many pediatricians acknowledge that Western medicine is limited in solutions for various chronic and recurring issues. Abigail will always consult with your pediatrician regarding treatment and care.
Coordinating Treatments with Pediatrician
Treatments are coordinated with your pediatrician and customized to each child’s temperament and specific needs. All aspects of your child’s health are considered: physical, nutritional, environmental, mental & emotional well-being.
Needle-free Chinese Medicine
It can be hard to imagine children wanting to receive Chinese medical treatments for their various ailments, because so many children strongly associate the word needles with shots. Abigail loves to offer pediatric patients the experience of autonomy and independence in a medical setting by allowing them to choose their method of care - be it acupuncture, or a needle-free modality.
What to Expect in a Pediatric Acupuncture Visit
After a thorough examination and discussion of the child’s health history and current complaint, one or more of the following treatment methods may be used:
- herbal medicine,
- pediatric acupuncture,
- other non-needle techniques,
- massage, or
- dietary shifts.
