It’s becoming more and more common for parents to look for natural and effective treatment options to deal with childhood health concerns. Acupuncture is a great option for those looking to keep the whole family healthy in both mind and body. It really doesn’t matter how old you are, young or old, families can benefit greatly from regular acupuncture treatments. continue reading
Acupuncture for Kids and Teens
We have been seeing a lot of young patients at Alpine Acupuncture these days, which is WONDERFUL! Carleton has three kids of his own (from elementary to high school age) and is a very active and involved dad. He also coaches skiing on the weekends and has a great rapport with babies (our youngest patient was just a few days old and was treated with craniosacral for feeding issues), kids and teens. We thought we’d let everyone know a little bit more about kids and acupuncture. The “patients” in these photos are our kids, the top photo is Carleton treating our oldest son for torticollis (stiff neck) years ago and the bottom one is our youngest getting a treatment for the horrible headache he got with the flu this year!
Kids and teens are the PERFECT candidates for acupuncture because most parents and coaches don’t like kids to be on strong medicines and pain killers if they can help it. Their young bodies adapt quickly and they heal rapidly with a little helping hand from natural medicine. Some of the kids who are seeing us lately have issues like allergies, migraines, sports injuries and other types of pain. Most kids say they feel the needles just a bit, if at all, and the relief they get can help get them back to being the busy, happy kids they are! Grab a stuffed animal to bring along, Carleton has advanced training in stuffed animal acupuncture 🙂 Feel free to give us a call or ask about acupuncture for kids during your appointment!
