Acupuncture & Children’s Conditions

Some people are unaware that babies and children can be treated using acupuncture.

In China it has been used for thousands of years to improve children’s health and aid recovery from a wide range of illnesses and medical conditions.

It is considered a speciality, and requires specialist training and knowledge due to the differences in childrens physiology, pathology & semiotics. Acupuncture can help avoid or reduce the need for medication in many cases and can work safely in conjunction with conventional medicine, where a combined approach is appropriate for the child. As a practitioner of Paediatrics it’s amazing to see the effects that acupuncture can bring when working with children’s conditions. Please see below for just some of the conditions I have seen & treated in our clinic:

  • Chronic Constipation & Diarrhoea
  • Asthma, Eczema and Allergies 
  • Chronic Cystitis 
  • Lower back pain 
  • Osgood–Schlatter disease (knee problems)
  • Over sensitivity (emotional/mental issues)
  • Asperger’s (phobias and tics)
  • Enuresis (bed wetting)
  • Nightmares and Insomnia
  • Cough
  • Diabetes
  • Cordial regression syndrome

“I was recommended Martine by a number of ladies for help with falling pregnant. I was made to feel welcome and comfortable during every session. We set out a plan to aid fertility but within a month I found out I was pregnant. My pregnancy was Challenging and at every challenge Martine was on hand to help make them disappear. Bleeding was a regular occurrence and within 24 hours of a session it would stop. My back pain and insomnia was eased and I was able to sleep and do things with my six year old. I looked forward to every session and had planned to go right up until delivery but lockdown was put in place. Thank you for everything you did for me and my girls and helping to keep me grounded during my pregnancy. I would recommend Martine to anyone looking for assistance with fertility”
