Acupuncture for Children

At Concord Center Acupuncture we recognize the uniqueness of each child and provide natural and holistic methods for guiding each child and adolescent back to their natural healthy state. We understand that children are much more than just mini adults. Imbalances and illness develop differently in children than in adults. This specialty within Chinese Medicine provides effective and natural solutions for your little ones using nutrition, herbal medicine, pediatric massage, acupressure and acupuncture. Although acupuncture is quite safe for children, we know that many children are afraid of needles, so most of the time we use nutrition, herbal medicine, acupressure and massage when treating infants and young children. Most adolescents are quite open to acupuncture and benefit greatly from all the services that we have to offer. We have a wonderful, safe and easy to administer line of pediatric herbal tinctures that can be prescribed to most children ages 0 and beyond.

In our experience, children quickly understand and resonate with the theories of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine and we love to teach them as we work together. From viewing charts of the acupuncture meridians, to getting a demonstration of what the acupuncture needles actually look like, we love to teach children about what we do and they love to learn and feel better at the same time! Feeling better with Chinese Medicine provides for your child a positive experience and confidence in the benefits of holistic healthcare that they will carry with them throughout their lives.

We can help your little one feel better, naturally! We frequently treat infants, children and adolescents for a variety of conditions including:
