Paediatric acupuncture in the press

Shortly before Christmas, I was contacted by The Times health correspondent, who asked me lots of questions about why there had been a big rise in the popularity of paediatric acupuncture.  When the article appeared, as well as including some of my quotes, it also included some negative ones from Professors Ernzt and Colquhoun.  These two men are well-known to those of us in the acupuncture world, because they have made it their mission to discredit complementary medicine.  I was asked to respond to their comments by the British Acupuncture Council.  Here is the link to my response:

I also created a short video which you can view here to illustrate how well babies tolerate acupuncture treatment.
