Is Acupuncture Safe For Kids?

Acupuncture for kids provides many advantages as a treatment option with the biggest being that there are no side effects! The Cleveland Clinic uses Acupuncture to help their pediatric patients grow up happier and healthier, and now you can as well with Acupuncture in Edmond, OK!

 

What Can Acupuncture Treat? 

Be Well Acupuncture Edmond, OK can treat almost anything! For kids, we often find that we are treating tummy aches (digestive issues), frequent colds, ear infections, sleeping issues, ADD/ADHD, allergies, asthma, headaches, anxiety, growing pains, fatigue, and much more!    

 

Does Acupuncture Hurt?

The sensation of recieving Acupuncture is completely different than that of a shot; over 20 Acupuncture needles will fit into the smallest of shot needles. Toni was trained to use a special needling technique with needles so fine that they are about the size of a cat’s whisker. For most children Toni uses the 5 Element approach to needling, where the needle is inserted and immediately taken out. The “taps” she uses are often not seen or felt, but their therapeutic benefit is activated.  While most children have no issues with Acupuncture, Toni understands that not every child will willingly undergo acupuncture. No child is ever forced to have acupuncture treatment at Be Well Acupuncture Edmond, OK as Toni has several other painless options for treatment up her sleeve.

Studies show that Acupuncture for kids reduces the number annual of visits to the doctor. Acupuncture causes the body release chemicals that improve immune system function, reduce inflammation, create new tissue, and that make people happy. By keeping the body in a continued state of optimum health, we prevent the ability for most pathogens to take hold in the body. There is a great deal of science behind this, which Toni is more than happy to explain upon request. 

 

How Long Are The Appointments? 

Appointments for kids are shorter than those for adults. Toni prefers to speak with the parents prior to the appointment to get the health history and concerns. When you come in, Toni will perform a short assessment and then a treatment. Children’s appointments are generally only about 15-20 minutes since needles are not retained. 

 

How Much Are Children’s Acupuncture Appointments? 

The intake for a child under 10 years old is $80 and follow-ups are $45. The cost to treat children under 10 is reduced because very few needles are used and because the time to treat them is a third of the time to treat adults. 

 

What About Babies? 

More often than not, babies don’t feel a thing and therefore do not mind. That being said, Toni will often times treat the parent while they hold their infant in order to treat the child. Acupuncture is a medicine of energetics and babies are still deeply energetically intertwined with their parents which allows for this technique to be successful.
