I see many parents, and they often inquiry if acupuncture and herbs can be used on their children. The answer is yes. For most children, acupressure and magnets can be used to stimulate points I would normally needle in adults. In addition, I practice Tui Na Chinese massage, which has been used for centuries in China on children. It often helps children recover from a cold, digestive issues, colic and so forth.
Chinese herbs are also available, in tincture format. The amount dosed is based on the child’s age and weight. It’s a great way to keep your child healthy if you do not want to use Western medicine every time your child feels ill.
Consider Acupuncture and Chinese herbs the next time your child has a stomachache, cold, or even those that need an extra boost to their immunity.
