ACUPUNCTURE FOR BABIES, CHILDREN AND TEENS

Many people are surprised to hear that children can have acupuncture. 


In fact, children do well and thrive with treatment. This is because they are growing and changing so rapidly, that imbalances in their body can be corrected relatively quickly, with simple techniques. 


Keeley treats all ages from babies and toddlers, to school aged children and teenagers, who present with all manner of health conditions specific to them as individuals and to their stage of development. Whether your child’s health issue is acute or chronic, treatment can help them to flourish now and in the future.


Treatment incorporates many different techniques, which may or may not include needles according to your child’s preference, so please don’t let this aspect of treatment worry you. At each appointment, I always aim to find a balance between giving the most effective treatment and ensuring a positive experience for your child.


Treatments last 30 - 40 minutes. I may give you instructions for some simple, gentle massage to do at home in between appointments and also give recommendations for dietary or lifestyle changes that will support your child’s treatment.
