Traditional Chinese Medicine for Children

TCM, Acupuncture and Herbs - A Good Choice for Children

Acupuncture for ChildrenTraditional Chinese Medicine is both a safe and effective1 treatment for children of all ages. Acupuncture, moxibustion and Chinese herbs can provide fast, long lasting relief from a variety of common childhood illnesses including:

  • Prevention of neonatal jaundice (neonatal hyperbilirubinemia, neonatal icterus)
  • Rapid support treatment for neonatal jaundice
  • Colic2
  • Coughs and colds
  • Headaches, stomach aches and back pain
  • Stress, depression
  • ADHD and ADD
  • Food and seasonal allergies
  • Safe alternative to pharmaceutical treatments

Our experienced practitioners select the most appropriate TCM treatments for each child bearing in mind age, illness and other relevant factors. Some children accept some treatments better than others. However there is almost always a practical TCM treatment option available for every child.

TCM can also help support mothers in the following ways:

  • Support and increase milk production3
  • Prevention and treatment of postpartum depression
  • Strengthen the immune system
  • Rebalance hormones after birth
  • Increase low and or depleted energy
