Frequently Asked Questions

  • I am scared of needles. Can I still benefit from a non-needle method?

    Paediatric acupuncturists understand that not every teenager will undergo acupuncture. Teens are never forced to have acupuncture treatments and there are several other non-needle treatment techniques that your acupuncturist may use. They are easy, painless and have a similar therapeutic effect to using needles.

  • Do I have to ask my parents for consent before receiving treatment?

    If you are 16 years old, you do not require consent from your parents to visit an acupuncturist. However, we would always encourage teenagers to talk to their parents before visiting our clinic for an acupuncture for teens treatment.
