Is Acupuncture Safe for Children?

Acupuncture is a safe and effective treatment that can be used alone or in conjunction with traditional Western medicine and Chiropractic to help with common childhood ailments and maintain optimum health.

Boost immunity Acupuncture can boost the immune system, which helps suppress ailments kids are prone to such as chronic ear infections, respiratory problems, asthma, and allergies.

Soothe stress Studies have shown acupuncture also influences brain chemistry by stimulating the release endorphins that can soothe stress and anxiety—and the problems (nightmares, bed-wetting, constipation, chronic stomach pain) that often come with it.

Ease into it 

Acupuncture can be used on children of any age, even newborns. Acupuncturists use 40-gauge needles—as thin as a human hair—which help ease any anxiety children may have about needles. They may also use a probe that attaches to an e-stim machine and stimulates the acupuncture point with impulses. Although not as strong as regular acupuncture, it can be a viable option for apprehensive kids (or parents). If your child is fearful, help him overcome his anxiety by allowing him to watch you get a treatment. Most children feel so relaxed and comfortable after their first experience (some practitioners begin with acupressure or massage before getting out the needles) that any phobias quickly vanish.

Testimonials

  • "This is the most comprehensive chiropractic clinic that I have visited. Dr. Halling is very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. She listens and is willing to try other options to give me the most pain relief. Her massage therapist, James, is THE best massage therapist that I've gone to. I've traveled the country and have never had a massage that compares to the results and relief that I've had with his deep tissue massage. The Halling Wellness Center is the complete package, nothing compares to their level of excellence."
