PAEDIATRIC DISORDERS

Paediatric Disorders

Children have very dynamic systems and can respond to acupuncture quickly.
They can get sick very quickly but also respond very quickly to treatments. I returned to China in 1993 to do specialised studies in Paediatrics at the Red Cross Hospital in Hangzhou. I will give acupuncture to a child only if they are open to it otherwise I will prescribe herbs.
In the case of babies and acupuncture needles are not retained- they are inserted for a second and removed.
