Is acupuncture safe for children?

Yes, acupuncture is safe for people of any age! (In some instances children actually respond more quickly than adults.) If your child has an aversion to needles, there are other options we can try, including massage (acupressure or tuina) the acupuncture points or channels, moxa, and cupping.

Note: The youngest age we accept for new patients is 10 years old.
