This colour textbook is a comprehensive guide and enables acupuncturists to diagnose and treat physical and emotional ailments in babies, children and teenagers. It draws on the author’s extensive clinical experience to provide solutions to a wide range of conditions including asthma, allergies, bedwetting, digestive issues, ADHD and depression. Rebecca Avern examines treatment of children from both a TCM and a Five Element perspective and the importance of tailoring treatment to the child’s age, with the book largely divided into sections on babies and toddlers, school-aged children and teenagers. The book covers all the conditions that children commonly present with in modern practice, including food allergies, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, issues relating to Autism Spectrum Disorder, and teenage depression, anxiety and eating disorders.
