Treating Babies and Children with Acupuncture and Dietary Advice Level 1

With Dr. Julian Scott

Take the first step in fulfilling your dream to start helping babies, children and families. Follow your calling and sign up today.

The first lesson will cover the two basic types of child; Shi - exuberant children with plenty of energy and Xu - those who don’t have quite enough. This provides the foundations for understanding what illnesses a child may be predisposed to. Secondly, because good digestion is essential for healthy development of babies and children, "Accumulation Disorder" (congestion and overloading of the digestive system) will be addressed with reference to Spleen Qi deficiency.

Having focused on the Spleen in module 1, modul 2 covers three commonly seen patterns of Kidney weakness; Kidney Jing insufficient, Kidney organ weak and Kidney Qi Xu. Understanding how to treat the kidneys is essential to working with children, as is knowing how to adapt your needle technique.

Modul 3: Digestive health is the foundation of childhood development and constipation is common, either as a presenting complaint or as an additional symptom to another illness. Often just regulating the bowels can be enough to clear conditions such as abdominal pain, insomnia, eczema, asthma etc.
