Acupuncture for Anxiety in Children

Young Boy

Children of all ages may experience anxiety, and though we wish this wasn’t the case, there are options to help them cope and manage.

Acupuncture and Chinese medicine is a natural and non invasive tool to help minimize feelings of anxiousness in kids of all ages.

Acupuncture and acupressure may be used with younger children starting at the age of 5 years old, as well as with adolescents and teenagers.

Some of the symptoms of anxiety in children that acupuncture and acupressure may treat are: 

  • Anxiousness
  • GI upset
  • Insomnia
  • Bed wetting
  • Difficulty with social settings

Treatment type and length will be based on a child’s age, and may vary based on the child’s comfort level.
