Many people ask if we treat kids and teens at MAS. The answer is emphatically “yes.” Kids and teens get acupuncture for the same reasons adults do: chronic pain, sports injuries, digestive discomfort, allergies and sinus congestion. Most of all, anxiety and stress.

Being a teen today is harder than ever. There is so much to be anxious about. Social media is an avenue for cyberbullying. Targeted online messaging is meant to tap into a young persons worst insecurities. COVID-19 has made feelings of isolation for teens worse than usual.

USA Today just put out an article about school avoidance. Many students are refusing to go to school for a variety of reasons. Parents and teachers are struggling for solutions.

I am especially grateful when a teen is willing to give acupuncture a try. I think about how much I could have used acupuncture in my teen years. It is too hard to manage the stresses of life while being in a perpetual state of overwhelm. Regular acupuncture can foster feelings of resilience, bring focus when the thoughts are scattered.

If you know a teen who is struggling with mental and behavioral health, please considering recommending MAS or any community acupuncture clinic.

MAS is a space for everyone to put their feet up and let their guard down, including teens. MAS is a space where you can come as you are to rest, digest, and recover from other areas of life.
