Pediatric Acupuncture – Care for Kids

Acupuncture is one of the most common alternative medicines in the United States, utilized by about three million people—mostly adults—every year; pediatric acupuncture is also used with growing frequency in children to relieve pain, migraines and other complaints. Studies reveal that  more than 150,000 children used acupuncture in 2007 in the United States alone.
