Abstract: Little is known about the broad application of acupuncture as adjuvant treatment for in-patient pediatric populations. We review a series of cases involving acupuncture for conditions ranging from insomnia to cyclic vomiting. The details of the protocol for each are included. This case series illustrates the benefits of an in-patient acupuncture treatment service, as well as the subtleties of an acupuncture protocol when treating children and adolescents.
