LIVE EVENT - Paediatric Masterclass: Non-Needle Methods for Paediatric Mental Health

Course Overview

This is a Live Webinar event series that will be held from January 24 - February 14, 2021. (Event timings are in the outline.) Mental health issues are the most common reason that children and teenagers come for acupuncture treatment. Many of these children are vulnerable and sensitive and are therefore not ready to accept needles. It is essential to have a wide-ranging tool kit so that we can deliver the treatment they need in other ways. In this four part webinar series, we will explore in detail the use of the following non-needle protocols and how they can be used in clinic to support a child’s mental health: - Moxa - Cupping - Gua sha - Low level laser therapy - Shonishin - E-stim You may be familiar with the use of modalities such as moxibustion and cupping in your adult practice, but unaware of the ways they can effectively be applied in the treatment of paediatric conditions, specifically mental/emotional problems such as anxiety and depression. This webinar has a practical focus, and will enable you to immediately start applying what you have learned effectively in your paediatric clinic. There will be a chance to ask questions, have discussion and bring case histories. The recordings will be made available for you to review after the event!
