ABS figures showed that approximately 3% of Australian children aged 5 to 9 were diagnosed with Autism in 2012. A figure that is almost double 2009 figures.

In the USA, approximately 3% of children suffer from asthma, allergies, ADHD or autism. This implies unprecedented personal, social & economical cost due to the global increase in these diseases.

Why Children and Their Parents Love Acupuncture?
Chinese Medicine records show Paediatric treatment as early as the first millennium - children and their parents have using Chinese medicine for more than 2,000 years!
If you are feeling frustrated by mainstream treatment, harsh medications and their side-effects, consider the safe, natural alternative of Chinese Medicine. TCM investigates and treats the underlying condition and restores the body’s natural healing ability, children respond well to this approach and often return to full health in unexpectedly quickly.
There are a range of TCM treatment options specific to children, including painless acupuncture, non needle methods - laser acupuncture for example: Cupping, Paediatric Massage (Tuina), Chinese Herbal Medicine and Diet Therapy. Children usually enjoy their TCM treatments, making healing fun.
My training as a Paediatric Nurse means I'm well aware of the enormous benefits that Western Medicine has to offer and am grateful that Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture are able to be used to augment conventional Paediatric care.
