Acupuncture for Babies & Kids

Acupuncture offers a holistic, effective, and minimally invasive treatment option for babies and children. A variety of needle-free techniques are available, as well as very thin, minimally invasive needles.

Common Symptoms Treated in pediatric Acupuncture: 

  • Teething

  • Colic

  • Restless Sleep

  • Seasonal Allergies

  • Immune Support

  • Behavioral Support

  • & Everything In-between

Non-needling techniques are available for children as well: 

Laser - Lasers are a painless way to stimulate acupuncture points and increase ATP production/cell growth.

Shonishin - This gentle Japanese technique uses non-insertive tools to brush and stimulate acupuncture points and channels on the body.

Cupping - Using suction, cups placed on the body increase blood flow, help to reduce pain and inflammation, and provide a safe treatment for respiratory issues.  

Moxibustion - “Moxa” is an ancient Chinese warming and tonifying therapy where mugwort is burned over acupuncture points, channels, or areas of the body.  A favorite treatment for growing pains!

Tips for a Great Pediatric Acupuncture Visit:

  • Your young child may be most comfortable in your arms during treatment

  • Babies can even be treated while sleeping or nursing

  • Bring along a doll or stuffed animal to have acupuncture too!
