Acupuncture Safe for Children

Acupuncture has been found to be very safe in a recent study of acupuncture treatment of children, when performed by well-trained professionals. This adds to the safety record of acupuncture documented in many prior studies as well. It’s the training of the acupuncturist, not the age of the patient, that makes the difference. Still, nice to see this confirmation that acupuncture can be safely used to treat children.
