Acupressure for Cough

Acupressure for Cough

We’re asked every now and then about acupuncture for kids. We love working with kids, but often times kids respond so well to acupressure alone, that dragging them into the office just isn’t necessary! This article is for a parent who asked about acupressure points for cough, and we figured she probably wouldn’t be the last one to ask, and probably isn’t the only person in the world who wouldn’t mind some at home cough suggestions. So, that said, here’s a quick run-through

Ten boxes (that’s 10,000 needles!) of 40 gauge (0.16mm) arrived on Tuesday, and thus far it looks like it’ll be all we’re using for the time to come. Some people are more sensitive, and thus far the feedback from them has been great!

Carly’s Taking Some Time Off

As some of you may have noticed, Carly is quite pregnant at the moment. She has been determined to work as long as possible, and the time has come for her to take it a little easier. It appears our new son is a bit more stubborn than her, and tends to object with vicious kidney punches and kicks to the liver when she is working too many hours. Well, it isn’t so much the hours as it is the constant sitting and standing that running our community acupuncture clinic requires. So, as of now Carly will just be working on Thursdays, and Dom will be picking up the Monday and Saturday shifts for the time being.

Thankfully, acupuncture can help. Last year the NY Times reported on a study, one of the most rigorous and thorough done to date, that showed acupuncture (surprise, surprise) was effective for a number of problems:
