Children

Acupuncture is suitable for all ages, from newborn through to teenage years, and offers a natural way for you to care for your children.

Julia practices a very gentle Japanese ‘no needle’ system of paediatric acupuncture called Shonishin.  This uses tapping or brushing techniques on the surface of the skin and helps to stimulate the body’s energy system and restore health.  Children can respond quickly to treatment because they are sensitive to change and often have a lot of energy.  A simple version of Shonishin can be taught to parents and used at home.

 

A child may come for acupuncture if they suffer from a wide range of conditions from sleep & feeding difficulties, asthma, eczema and glue ear to challenges at puberty.   Julia has an active interest in treating children with special needs.
