Drawing from the ancient wisdom of the Five Elements of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Robin Ray Green, a pediatric acupuncturist and herbalist with over a decade of clinical experience, offers simple solutions for creating a natural healing program for each unique child you treat. This course will help you gain an understanding of the Five-Element types in children — whether it’s Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, or Water—to allow you to diagnose imbalances within the body that create health issues. Once you’ve gained a solid understanding of the Five Elements and how health conditions are affected by elemental imbalances she’ll show you how to incorporate your own medicine wheel with techniques including acupressure, massage, dietary changes and meditation to help your pediatric patients achieve optimal health.
