Chinese Medicine may be used for children's conditions from 6 month's old to the teenage years. Treatment may include acupuncture, massage, moxa, dietary and simple lifestyle advice. As a growing child Qi (the body's vital energy) is very dynamic so responds wonderfully to simple gentle treatment.
For younger children most treatments are carried out whilst in the safe comfort of their parent’s lap. If acupuncture is appropriate for your child, the needles, which are extremely fine, are put in and taken out within a few seconds. Some children don’t feel a thing, others may feel a slight pricking sensation. Any discomfort is much less that the pain of an injection or immunisation. For some children, moxa and massage and making changes to diet and lifestyle can be enough to bring the child's system back into balance.
