When acupuncture is applied to children it is very dynamic. This is because children are actively incorporating new information all the time. Their physiology is primed for change.
When I treat small children in my practice I utilize newer technology that enhances their experience here in my office. This technology enables me to treat the acupuncture meridians (information pathways) without the needle. Why don’t I use the needle-less acupuncture on adults, you might ask? Well this is because adult bodies are not the same as a small child’s. In the adult body the information is slower to activate than in the child’s body. This time delay is only nano-seconds different but this does make a huge advantage for the child.
In the adult body the change must incorporate many different variables that are not necessarily inherent in a child. Unfortunately this is changing as we give our children more toxic byproducts for their yet immature detoxification systems to deal with.
