Is Acupuncture For You?

Babies and Children

Acupuncture is a very effective treatment for the illnesses and discomforts of babyhood and childhood. It is safe and free of side effects. Aran Acupuncture is a child-friendly acupuncture practice where plenty of toys are available and small patients are generally treated while sitting on a parent’s lap. When treating babies and young children, needles are not retained so the treatment is swift. Very fine needles are used to minimise discomfort. Moxibustion, cupping, and stimulation of ear points are other treatments which may be used alongside, or as alternatives to needling. Conditions which can be treated include:

  • Asthma
  • Colic/digestive problems
  • Cough
  • Diarrhoea /Constipation
  • Ear/Nose/Throat problems
  • Enuresis
  • Fever
  • Hayfever
  • Sleep problems


Whatever your stage in life, acupuncture can improve your general health and well being. Acupuncture can treat many illnesses and relieve both acute and chronic pain. Treatment can benefit those who are under stress, giving up smoking, planning a pregnancy or losing weight.

In Chinese medical theory, as a person ages, their vital energy or life force is seen to be in a gradual decline. This is healthy and a natural part of aging. Elderly people can be safely treated with acupuncture without having to worry about drug interactions or side effects. Acupuncture can relieve chronic pain and improve long-standing conditions, mood and energy levels, allowing older people to live life to the full. Conditions which can be treated include:

  • Arthritis
  • Depression
  • Hypertension
  • Oedema
  • Back, neck and shoulder pain
  • Digestive disorders
  • Frozen Shoulder
  • Urinary problems
