Paediatric Health

We all want our children to be strong and healthy but getting sick is a natural way for them to build a healthy immune system.  As parents we want to reduce their pain and make them well again as soon as possible. 

Contrary to popular belief Acupuncture is actually a very gentle way to treat illness and can help with many conditions. Chinese medicine views illness as an imbalance so it is always our aim to find and rebalance the root cause rather than simply abating the symptoms only to have them recur again. 

Treating children differs to adult treatments as adults are asked to lie still for 20-45mins with needles in whilst they work. Children have much stronger powers of regeneration and needles are inserted then removed almost immediately with much fewer points used. 

Follow up treatments are only 30 mins maximum as the treatment is generally repeated after a quick catch up on progress. Treatment plans are discussed at the first appointment but as a general rule, the longer a condition has persisted, the longer it will take to treat.
