No age is too young to start acupuncture care. At Grow Family Acupuncture we love working with kids. Even better is kids love working with us! We never use needles on young children. Just massage, tapping, contact needles, ear seeds, and many other wonderful tools to playfully stimulate points and enhance energy flow so kids can receive the benefit of acupuncture from the very beginning. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, constitutional patterns are not believed to set in until the age of 7 or 8. This means early childhood is the perfect time to target imbalances and strengthen weakness for a lifetime of better health. Conditions we commonly work with include: allergies, colds, eczema, ear infections, digestive upset, constipation, emotional regulation, sleep issues, bedwetting, and more!
We also encourage parents to bring their kids to our monthly pediatric clinics for immune strengthening tune ups. Check out our events page for the date of our next clinic!
