Paediatrics is one of the oldest specialties of Chinese medicine, and has been proven safe and effective.

Since children’s physiological feature is completely different adults’, treatment requires extra experience and skills. Due to the fact that their resistance is still weak, children are vulnerable to various pathogens, and tend to develop more serious complications. However, just because that their qi is on its way to rise, to flourish and to vitalize, they stand better chances to get cured given the timing and proper approach.

The biggest challenge in pediatric acupuncture is addressing children’s fear of needles. But it is such a fine needle, children can barely feel it. Sometimes there is no need for needle retention, sometimes acupressure or Chinese Pediatric Massage (Pediatric Tuina), can be used in stead of needling. In some cases, Chinese herbal medicine will be recommended to achieve better results.
