Can Acupuncture Treat Children?

Yes. Needle-less treatment is primarily used for young children or quick insertion/removal of needles that is barely noticed. Infants and babies can also be successfully treated for colic, earache, cerebral palsy, myopia, and bed-wetting. Many parents have found that by introducing their children to acupuncture, many childhood diseases are avoided. Parents are encouraged to have their children treated every month as a preventive measure and many children actually enjoy their visit to the acupuncturist.
