Treatment Methods
for Children

Acupuncture is typically associated with using needles, and the consensus might be that kids and needles don’t mix. While many children are perfectly fine with needles, the field of acupuncture includes a variety of treatment methods not involving the use of needles that are highly effective when applied to children. Massage by hand or with pediatric hand tools, vibrating point activators, tuning forks, suction cups and moxa are some techniques used to affect acupuncture points in place of needles. Chinese medicine developed this specialty during the Song dynasty (960-1279). At that time, Chinese doctors recognized the differences between children and adults in diagnosis and treatment and adapted their methods to treat children.

As an additional tier of treatment, Chinese herbal formulas are prescribed to treat many conditions and illnesses affecting children. Balance Point Health uses safe herbs, and Brian would never prescribe any herbal medicine that he hasn’t given or would not give to his children.
