Are you ready to branch into pediatrics but need more training?

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.

Course Reviews

Hi all, it was a fabulous course and did indeed surpass my expectation.
Partly that is because it was very integrated with Western medicine and Naturopathy which both are outside of my scope of practice. I guess I learned that I am really more attracted, attuned and in love with the essence of Chinese medicine.
Robin is extraordinarily thorough, professional and generous with her info. I felt there was a fair bit of repetition and might have fit into one day as I felt some of it to be beyond an acupuncturists scope of practice.
Wish I had registered for this weekends course too.(Ed Neal's) I really loved his shorty talk. Thanks so much for enabling us geographically isolated practitioners to stay current and feel in touch.

Fabulous speaker, relevant material.
