Acupuncture Treats Autism


Research shows that acupuncture improves the mental and physical functions of children with autism and demonstrates improvements in the following areas:

social initiation
receptive language
motor skills
attention span
language comprehension
self-care ability

Research also shows that the majority of children have no difficulty in receiving acupuncture with only 8% of children being non-compliant. My experience in the acupuncture clinic reflects the findings of the research. I am genuinely happy that this sort of research now proves what has been documented in Chinese medicine texts for over a thousand years: mental and physical function improves with the properly applied acupuncture procedure.

About Autism

Autism is a neural development disorder characterized by difficulties with social interaction and communication. It often involves repetitive behaviors. Autism is a general term for autism spectrum disorder. One autism spectrum disorder is Asperger’s syndrome. Asperger’s syndrome does not have the delays in language development and cognitive development often associated with autism. It is characterized by difficulties with social interaction, repetitive behaviors, and a lack of physical coordination.
