Paediatric ear infections are a common concern for many parents, characterised by symptoms like ear pain, difficulty sleeping, and fever. These infections, medically known as otitis media, can be particularly troubling due to their frequency and impact on children’s comfort and wellbeing.

At Eastern Therapies, we respect the rich tradition of Chinese Medicine, which has been practiced for thousands of years. This holistic approach to health care focuses on balancing the body’s energies, known as Qi, through various techniques.

It’s worth noting that Chinese Medicine encompasses a variety of practices – here are a few that parents might find intriguing:

  • Acupuncture: This well-known technique involves the insertion of fine needles into specific points on the body. It’s thought to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes and promote the balance of Qi. Using immune points , such as on the spleen meridian , small intestine and the gallbladder and triple heater meridians that surround the ear, we can target the pathways of inflammation to support reductions in infection and pain. 
  • Herbal Remedies: Chinese herbal medicine utilises a range of natural ingredients that are selected based on their properties and the specific needs of the patient. These herbs are used to create custom blends that can be taken as teas, powders, or tinctures.
  • Dietary Advice: Nutrition is a cornerstone of Chinese Medicine. Our practitioners may provide suggestions on dietary changes that could help support the body’s immune system and overall health.
