How Does It Work?
Children tolerate the therapy perfectly well. The therapist will make them feel perfectly at ease about the whole thing. Older kids can sit down and chat with the acupuncturist to get an idea about the whole process and how they will feel. This will help to reduce any anxiety which may come from fear of needles.
The needles are inserted very gently into the skin. They do not have to be retained in the body for a while which is the case with adults. This is because the effect on children is stronger.
The whole experience is perfectly comfortable for the youngsters. The positive effects can come more quickly and have greater magnitude as well.
