Treating Children, Level 2: Chronic and Complex Conditions - Course 1

Course Overview

This module is part of a series that provides you with the essential tools to expand your acupuncture practice to include treating babies and children. This module covers "Lingering Pathogenic Factors" – an event which includes ‘infection’ by a virus or bacterium, and also includes immunisation. An infection which might keep an adult in bed with a fever for a few days can cause lasting damage to a child. The three common patterns will be taught: Spleen Qi Xu, Retention of Phlegm, Retention of very thick phlegm. This module also includes chronic cough and asthma which are the most commonly seen complaints in a children's clinic. And although not as common, the effects of cranial compression will also be taught in this module.
