Online course on treating teenagers

It’s less than two weeks to go now before the start of my online course, TCM and the teenage years.  In this four part webinar, I will discuss the many ways in which teenagers benefit from acupuncture, and how to go about treating them.

For many reasons, being an adolescent in the early 21st century is not easy, and our teenagers are manifesting huge levels of stress.  The number of young people who come to the Panda Clinic with anxiety, depression and related conditions is worryingly high.

The good news is, however, that the results when treating teenagers who are struggling physically, emotionally or psychologically can be nothing short of miraculous.  Adolescence is a time of flux and this means we can harness the potential that this flux provides us with to iron out pre-existing imbalances and ensure that new ones do not develop.

There are only a handful of places remaining on the course.  If you are interested, to sign up please go to: https://www.treatingchildren.com/store/xpD696cV.

I have been practising acupuncture for 15 years. As well as practising in Oxford, I am both a senior lecturer and clinical supervisor at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine (www.cicm.org.uk) which is the biggest acupuncture training centre in Europe. I have treated both adults and children and whilst the benefits of acupuncture for adults are well-known and well-documented, fewer people are aware of how it can benefit children. I decided that I wanted more children to experience the benefits of acupuncture, and so decided to set up The Panda Clinic. I have to admit to having another motivation - I love being around children and derive great satisfaction when I see children recover from ill health. I am mother to 2 primary school age children. As well as being an experienced acupuncturist, as a parent I have a good understanding of the stress and anxiety that an ill child can induce. I will always do my best to communicate with the parent(s) of a child I am treating as thoroughly and clearly as I can.
