Acupuncture effective for pain in children

Great article in the Seattle Times.

“Last year, an analysis in the journal Pediatrics concluded that acupuncture was safe for kids “when performed by appropriately trained practitioners.”

Officials at pediatric hospitals estimate that at least a third of U.S. pain centers for children offer acupuncture. The federal government’s National Health Interview Survey, which last asked about acupuncture in 2007, estimated that about 150,000 children were receiving needle treatment annually for conditions such as pain, migraine and anxiety.”

Acupuncture is a very effective way to treat chronic and acute pain in kids. There are techniques that don’t involve insertion of needles for small children. Contact me for more info!
