What happens before the treatment?

The acupuncturist talks with you and your child about his or her health history, including medications, diets and daily habits. The acupuncturist examines your child’s tongue and checks the pulse in both wrists.

How old do you need to be to receive acupuncture?

Infants as young as three weeks old can undergo acupuncture therapy.

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
