Over the years we have treated our own three babies since they were born. Our first baby boy had reflux and was a bad sleeper due to this, so we used acupuncture points to improve his digestion which calmed the burning, allowing him and myself to get some well needed sleep. I also kept my diet very bland and increased my water intake.
Brad and I have treated dozens of babies over the last 16 years here at Studio Qi with great results.
So what conditions do we treat babies for...
1. Digestive problems is the biggest condition as when your milk starts flowing sometimes their digestion system gets overloaded and it just needs a gentle push back to balance. So colic, constipation and reflux are all treatable by acupuncture.
2. Immune system enhancment, as sometimes with other siblings in the home they can bring home colds and fevers, or going to care early your bub may experience all sorts of infections. These can drag on producing a lingering cough and lung congestion so we can help clear the congestion, drying the mucus production which will alleviate the coughing. Generally these specific treatments will improve their immune system to ward off other germs.
3. A baby that is not sleeping who always feels hot and very fidgety will immensely benefit from a treatment of acupuncture. It takes the extra heat out of their system which allows them to settle and sleep for longer.
4. We also treat babies after their vaccinations which helps reduce fever and other mild side effects. It's such an effective treatment to help them through this experience.
How do we treat your baby...
With lots of love and care.
So with babies we use very thin needles which they do not even feel, the treatment is very short with needles in and out in minutes. Babies are very receptive to acupuncture so they don't need a long treatment, and treatments are usually minimal as they bounce back very quickly.
If you have any questions about your babies health and how we can help, please give us a call here at the clinic for a chat.
Best Tabitha & Brad
