The Children’s Medicine

proFertility Acupuncture in Lexington

by Arwen Careaga, LAc

As both a mother and  practitioner, I am frequently asked if children can have acupuncture or take herbs. The answer to both questions is yes! Not only can they, but they should. Traditional Chinese Medicine has so much to offer children. Treatments may include acupuncture but don’t have to – acupressure (light massage on acupuncture points to address specific problems), gua sha, moxa and other modalities may be used instead. Herbal treatments are available in many forms, including glycerin tinctures, which kids usually enjoy.

Please consider bringing your children in if they have any of the following concerns:

  • teething
  • bed-wetting
  • yellow phlegm
  • runny nose
  • cough
  • recurrent ear infections
  • common cold
  • childhood obesity
  • ADHD
  • recurrent headaches

This is a list of the most common concerns we see children for, but  children can be treated for the same concerns as adults. When in question, just give us a call. For many of these concerns it’s a good idea to have some patent formulas on-hand, which we can also help with.  One of the greatest strengths of this medicine is the power of prevention, and healthy children have an easier path to becoming healthy adults!
