TICM have greater benefits for children
TICM treatments have even greater benefits for children due to their abundance of Qi (energy). Children and young adults are able to heal much faster than adults. However, they are also more susceptible to illness because their organ systems are not yet developed.
Acupuncture can help the following ailments in children and young adults. Please note the list in not exhaustive:
Respiratory issues: Asthma, allergies, and colds
Digestive disorders: Stomach aches, constipation, diarrhoea and reflux
Sleeping problems: Bed wetting, insomnia, fatigue
“Constitutional” issues: Hyperactivity, ADHD, anxiety
Dermatology: Eczema, psoriasis, shingles, chicken pox
Majority of the children I treat love having acupuncture and acupressure with some families who get so addicted that they come in weekly and some bi-weekly. They become very relaxed and receptive to the treatment. Children are absolutely amazing.
If it was up to me, every child would be having acupuncture keeping them away from drug dealers.
