As a loving parent, you no doubt want the very best care for your children. At times, doctors struggle to find solutions to common on-going health problems children are experiencing today. You may turn to Google for an overload of information which can also be daunting and frustrating for you. Meanwhile, seeing that twinkle leave your child’s eye can be particularly heart-breaking.
Depression, anxiety and sleep disorders are no longer problems impacting only adults. Our little ones and teenagers are struggling with these issues and it’s hard to know what treatment is the most beneficial and the least taxing on their young bodies. Surely there is a safer, drug-free alternative?
Acupuncture is known to be particularly effective in helping children with these and many other ailments, including bed-wetting. They can often respond quicker than adults due to the fact they haven’t suffered with long term illnesses that older ones have. This can mean for some patients only a few treatments are needed to correct the problem.
You may be thinking ‘I already struggle to get my child a blood test, how am I going to manage to get my child to sit there?’. Acupuncture needles are very thin and are not like getting a blood test. Actually once your child experiences this they will feel very relaxed and often fall asleep during a treatment. We totally understand where you are coming from and understand the fear children have with medical procedures new to them.
