Kids Love Acupuncture
Forget needle-phobia. Tiny acupuncture needles are a big hit with kids, moms and doctors at Seattle Children's Hospital and here in East Lansing as well. Acupuncture started out as a pilot program at Seattle Children's Hospital, but its use has grown dramatically with patients requesting acupuncture five days a week.1 The reason? Acupuncture is a surprisingly gentle and effective choice for kids with health problems. So effective, that over one third of pediatric Pain Treatment Services at children's hospitals in the United States now offer acupuncture services.
