We want to share our experience about acupuncture and acupressure in newborns as a treatment modality. Researches have shown that acupressure and acupuncture are effective for headaches, stress control or obesity. Our studies and experiences about acupressure and acupuncture use in newborns and adults suggest that alternative and complementary medicine could be a promising treatment modality to be used with modern medicine. We studied in which diseases and how we can use these treatment modalities in newborns. We summarised our studies about acupuncture and acupressure effect for minor painful procedures and skin perfusion and thought that this could be a new treatment modality. Further research is needed to evaluate effective modes and doses for pain control in newborns.
