We treat the entire family at Advanced Acupuncture NJ—very young children, middle school-aged kids, and teens are all great acupuncture patients.
Pediatric acupuncture works on the same acute and chronic conditions adults suffer, but sick children often respond more quickly and feel better in less treatment sessions.

What to Expect from Pediatric Acupuncture in New Jersey
Advanced Acupuncture usually spends about 30 minutes or less on a session of acupuncture for kids.
Our associates use NO NEEDLES. Instead, we use a gentle, pediatric cold laser to stimulate the affected areas of the body.
We combine the laser with soft massage and Chinese herbs for a holistic approach to your child’s health.
Children under 8 sit on their parent’s lap for a comforting experience.
Teenagers who want to experience needles have the option do so safely. They often remark that the session was cool and enjoy telling their friends about it.
Common Illnesses that Respond to Children’s Acupuncture
Children and babies have delicate digestive systems—a baby that goes a full day without a bowel movement is constipated.
Advanced Acupuncture sees two main causes for children’s constipation—overeating or eating raw, undigestible foods. We can complement acupuncture for kids with nutritional counseling.
