PARENT OF PATIENT AREA

Are you the parent of a baby, child or teenager
and looking for a gentle yet effective holistic treatment
for them? If so, welcome, you have
arrived in the right place.

Practitioner AREA

Are you an acupuncturist who already treats children? Or are you an acupuncturist who is interested in expanding your practice to treat the whole family? Here you will find a wealth of information and resources to help you, which is constantly being added to.

Every child who comes to the clinic needs a slightly different approach and a different method of treatment.  I will tailor everything to suit the nature and needs of your child. Treatment needs to be effective but your child’s experience also needs to be a positive one.

Child-friendly Needle & Needle FREE TechniqueS

Once I have gained your child’s trust and shown that acupuncture needles are virtually painless, your son or daughter may be happy to try needles.  However, if not, I have a number of alternative treatment methods which are effective and do not involve the insertion of needles.  This means that I can find a way of giving your child the treatment they need in a way which is acceptable to them.   The methods I might use include: 

Low-level laser acupuncture
Paediatric tui na
Shonishin or ‘children’s needle’
Acupressure
Moxibustion
Cupping
Press seeds
Bespoke lifestyle advice and suggestions suited to the unique nature of your child
