James has considerable experience of treating children with acupuncture and massage and
has done specialist post-graduate training in paediatric acupuncture. He finds this one of the most rewarding areas of his work.

                         Acupuncture can be used (often with rapid results) on children and even babies.
                         It can be effective in treating many common childhood ailments, including:
                         asthma, eczema, croup, chronic and acute coughs, and digestive disorders.

                         The needles are typically inserted for a much shorter period of time than for
                         adults. Alternatively, acupressure and/or moxa (a warming herb) may be used
                         to stimulate the points. Dietary and lifestyle advice may be given to help support
                         the treatment.

                         Treatments will typically last 30 to 45 minutes.
