Acupuncture - Children

Did you know that acupuncture is a safe and very effective treatment for babies and children?

Many people may think that acupuncture is just for the grown-ups, but is safe for new born babies up to teens.

Your child does not have to stay still, and younger children are needled whilst sitting on a parent´s lap. They usually respond very quickly to treatment. It’s very effective, quick and well tolerated by most children. 

Tara runs the children's clinic on a Monday afternoon from 2-5pm. There are toys and games, and siblings are welcome. 

Tara is a mother of 4 young children herself and has experience of treating children of all ages. She became interested in paediatric treatments when her own children succumbed to a wide range of typical childhood illness and her practice grew from there. 

Tara can also give dietary advice which may be helpful. Tara sees babies and children of all ages.

Many childhood illnesses have traditionally been treated with Chinese medicine. These include common conditions such as:

• coughs and colds
• asthma
• Eczema
• recurrent infections 
• stomach and bowel problems
• teething
• nightmares
• bedwetting
• insomnia
• behavioural problems
• reflux and many other things

Tara uses a special 'gentle needle' technique, which is a tiny needle inserted and removed very quickly which the child can barely feel.

If you are worried that your child would not like the acupuncture needles, Tara can use laser acupuncture which is completely painless, or acupressure or Mona instead.
