Many acupuncturists know they can help kids with acupuncture but are unsure how to actually treat kids. Robin will discuss practical tips that will allow you to get the job done – without fuss. She will cover guidelines that make it easy for you to give acupuncture and non-needle treatments to kids. You’ll learn how to get kids to take pediatric formulas and basic nutrition that supports healing. She’ll give you strategies for treating the most common conditions kids come in for - with real-world tips for implementing them. By understanding the basics of working with kids the next pediatric theory course you take will make more sense and it’ll be easier to apply it in your clinic.
