Five (More) Misconceptions about Acupuncture

Yesterday’s post about acupuncture misconceptions was super fun to write but it got a little out of hand. I talk about acupuncture a lot. As you can imagine, it’s kind of my thing. So when it comes to misconceptions I have a lot to say.

The ten misconceptions about acupuncture could have easily turned into a four to five thousand word blog post and I’m not going to do that to you folx. So here we are, part two – five more misconceptions about acupuncture.

Shonishin: Holistic infant and pediatric care

When we picture acupuncture, most of us see comfortable warm rooms with soft lighting and relaxing needle naps. Or for those of us who are familiar with community acupuncture, we see a group setting with people kicking back and healing together. What do all of these have in common?

Almost all of us are picturing adults.

But Traditional East Asian Medicine, or TEAM, isn’t just for adults. My most rewarding internship was at the Masonic Children’s Hospital in the Twin Cities, where I treated children (and their parents) for nausea and pain related to cancer treatments, anxiety, depression and many other conditions.

TEAM is a great way to support your child’s health. It can help them sleep better at night, even out their energy, support their digestion and bolster their lifelong vitality.
