4, 1 Hour Classes
Paediatrics has been a specialism of Chinese Medicine since the Song dynasty. Yet it is still a small minority of acupuncturists who treat children. We will explore what it is like to treat children. How is it different to adult practice? What stops practitioners from doing it and how can we overcome these barriers? Children need our medicine now more than ever. This series will give you a taste of the day to day reality of being a paediatric acupuncturist, and inspire you to begin welcoming children to your clinic.
- Learn how to integrate pediatric patient into your practice.
- Understand the most common patterns and conditions in children.
- Learn techniques that can be easily introduced into practice
