Is acupuncture safe for children?

Although acupuncture is safe for children, most young children would never sit still long enough to have the needles inserted into them. A more effective form of treatment for children is to stimulate the same acupuncture points with either pressure or a laser. The pressure and laser are very effective at addressing digestive issues such as colic or constipation, allergies, calming a unsettled baby or child, cerebral palsy and other motor impairment conditions.
