Can children have treatment?
Yes. We can treat babies and young children, but the acupuncture pins are not left in place long at all. They are inserted, stimulated and quickly withdrawn. We may follow this with massage techniques to stimulate the body areas into action or to soothe and relax them. Most babies do not even realise they have had acupuncture. Children can take herbal medicines. Tinctures are usually well tolerated. Tweens and teens can and do love Shiatsu massage therapy. We regularly mollify stressed and anxious VCE students throughout their final year.
