Pediatric Acupuncture

Have you ever wondered how it is possible to peform acupuncture on a toddler or young child? Truth be told it is very simple, and the secret is all within the training that your acupuncturist has undergone. Allison Camire MAOM LAc. OM Dipl. of North Shore Acupuncture and Natural Medicine has received extensive training in pediatric acupuncture through her education in Japanese style acupuncture. Japanese style acupuncture allows an acupuncturist to use non-insertive or 'needle-free' techniques that are much more approachable to pediatric patients than a treatment with traditional acupuncture needles.

How does needle free acupuncture work?

These techniques are derived from Japanese style acupuncture and work with polarities of different metals and magnets. By using acupuncture points and acupuncture meridians your acupuncturist will stimulate specific areas on the body to release energy or Qi of the body to create more balance. This style of acupuncture treatment can be thought of as tuning an instrument. For example, each string of a guitar requires a certain pitch and tone - and when tuned correctly all strings play together in harmony. This same idea can be applied to the organs, muscles, bones, and spirit of an acupuncture patient. By stimulating the correct acupuncture points, this corrects the imbalances of the vital energy (Qi). Acupuncturists can establish optimal and individualized health plans that can bring about positive changes in a patient’s overall health.
