As a parent, you want nothing more than for your child to be healthy. You may not think of acupuncture as an important piece of your child's healthcare. However, it can be an essential alternative therapy to help regain and maintain your child's health.
In today's world, children are exposed to many stressors which, over time, can build up and cause problems. If not properly detected and cared for, stressors can lead to an inadequate supply of Qi necessary to nourish and support health. Eventually, your child may have signs and symptoms of illness and disease, and pain may appear.
how does acupuncture work?
Your acupuncturist will begin by taking a full assessment of your child’s health. This may include asking questions, assessing the pulses, looking at the tongue and/or abdominal palpitation. These are effective diagnostic tools that enable your acupuncturist to obtain a clear picture of your child’s overall health.
If signs of weakness, imbalance or blockage are found, your acupuncturist may use a variety of non-invasive and gentle treatment methods to restore the balance and flow of Qi, thereby facilitating your child’s natural ability to heal.
What affects Qi?
Like adults, children are exposed to many stressors. Overtime, they build up and can cause problems. Here are a few that can affect a child’s health:
Accident/falls: Children often fall and hurt themselves. Physical trauma blocks the free movement of Qi. Eventually, this can lead to less-than-adequate nourishment for the body and organ systems.
Environment: Exposure to environmental and chemical hazards can have a direct impact upon a child’s health. This may make them susceptible to things like colds, allergies, asthma and digestive troubles.
Diet: A diet lacking in proper nutrition can affect organ function and eventually overall health and well-being. Acupuncture helps strengthen and support out-of-balance organs.
Emotions: Children may experience unpleasant situations that affect them emotionally. They can internalize the stress from these situations, and over time, this stress can manifest into various signs and symptoms.
An acupuncture checkup could be valuable in determining the present and future health and well-being of your child. Caring for your child’s health with acupuncture is safe, natural, drug-free and effective. It’s the perfect way to allow your child to grow and thrive.
