How to treat children with acupuncture

Children’s acupuncture does not have to hurt!

There are not many books on acupuncture for children and adolescents. The ones that do exist, however, are recommended. Julian Scott is one of the most famous authors about acupuncture for children. In our video center we have some videos on the treatment of children, titled The Gentle Needle, by Julian Scott and Steven Birch. To treat children with acupuncture or Chinese medicine you need special knowledge. The book Acupuncture in Children by Loo explains everything you need to know about the use of acupuncture in young patients: The development of the child according to TCM criteria, the diagnosis from a western point of view and according to TCM and how to take away children’s fear of needles.

The important field by the children medicine

Julian Scott and Teresa Barlow combine in the book Acupuncture in Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine (formerly Acupuncture in the Treatment of Children) the clinical approach of the main indication with the individual understanding of disorders as seen in Chinese Medicine. This book covers all major areas of pediatrics such as:

  • Tonsillitis
  • febrile convulsions
  • hay fever and developmental disorders.

The authors Julian Scott and Teresa Barlow give a brief introduction to the understanding of disease from the perspective of Chinese paediatrics. They clearly show the clinical indications, differentiate the Chinese syndromes, name clear point combinations and give a prognosis of the course of treatment. A practical food table, as well as a point index round the book of the child and youth medicine off very well.
