Adolescence and the teenage years in particular are a time of dramatic transition and transformation. This is what Chinese Medicine calls the ‘pure Yang’ phase of life: signs and symptoms change quickly for better or worse.
These can be happy and healthy years but increasing societal and academic pressures combined with fluctuating hormones can create a perfect storm. The good news is that young people respond very quickly to acupuncture and the results can be life-changing and enduring.
Typical ailments presented in the treatment room are anxiety and panic attacks, anger and irritability, depression, insomnia, acne, body image disorders, unexplained aches and pains and menstrual irregularities.
Teenagers acupuncture testimonials
“I’d been having panic attacks at school for about 6 months, I was also finding it difficult to sleep. The treatments were really relaxing, I didn’t need many needles and I felt so much less anxious! “
“I’ve been having acupuncture on and off for about 5 years. I’ve had it for things like period pains, cold symptoms and sleep patterns. I find it really relaxing and it works really fast for me. I found it especially effective around my GCSEs relieving stress and anxiety.”
