This course will cover a wide range of children’s “so-called” behavioral disorders, from hyperactivity, Attention Deficit Disorder and autism as well as anxiety, insomnia and night terrors and see how they affect different age groups, from infants, toddlers, school-age children and teen-agers. It will give participants an understanding of this modern day epidemic from both the Traditional Chinese and Japanese acupuncture systems.
Soma will present real cases from her private practice and will cover in-depth treatment protocols with acupuncture, sho-ni-shin techniques and herbal medicine, as well as take a look at life style and nutritional issues.
