Sustain Health’s non-invasive, safe and natural methods help treat common ailments in children in a gentle and natural way

When it comes to children, Acupuncture and TCM are well equipped to deal with many of the challenges and illnesses that inevitably occur during the beginning stages of life.  Here at Sustain Health we recognise how important your child’s health is and how it can affect their development and the rest of their life.

Treatment for children differs from adults and usually follows slightly different protocols in regards to Acupuncture, Herbs and treatment duration.  Acupuncture is still very useful and children are very sensitive to its action, so needles are retained for much shorter time periods with fewer points.  Herbal medicine is also moderated in dose and content to accommodate the size and constitution of the child.

Some of the health concerns for children we see here at Sustain Health include:

  • Colic
  • Digestive disorders
  • Repetitive ear infection
  • Lack of development
  • Immunisation support
  • Skin disorders
  • Repetitive cold and flu
  • Asthma
  • Autism

Why choose Acupuncture and TCM?

  • Gentle and safe interventions – Our trained professionals have your child’s well being as the highest priority during treatment. With the use of minimal Acupuncture and safe Herbal Medicine your Chinese Medicine doctor will ensure any problems will be addressed without creating more problems for your child.
  • Clearing the foundation of sickness – A small body is very open to new illness, and the growing body may also be prone to burying the seeds of illness deep inside. By getting to the underlying root of the sickness Acupuncture and TCM can help to clear “lingering pathogens”, preventing recurrence and creating better overall health for the longer term.
  • Ongoing support – Understanding your child as an individual and their circumstance is integral to our approach. We are dedicated to finding practical effective solutions that can maintain health and wellbeing for your family throughout the whole of life.  Your Chinese Medicine professional will have invaluable perspectives and can easily communicate how they can help.
