Can children receive Acupuncture?
Yes. Generally speaking children do well with acupuncture because their energy is very responsive and they usually have fewer complicating factors. As a result their course of treatment may be shorter and fewer needles required; in infants acupressure and Tui Na are more commonly used.
Dr. Christianne Parrott does not currently treat infants or children but does recommend Dr. Xiao for any pediatric acupuncture and Chinese Medicine.
