Acupuncture for Babies, Children and Teenagers

AcupunctureBabiesChildrenTeens cover

I am the author of a major new textbook on paediatric acupuncture which comes out on 21st September 2018 and is published by Singing Dragon. The book is for acupuncture practitioners who already treat children or would like to treat children.  It is the first acupuncture text to discuss many 21st century conditions commonly seen in children, such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and many mental/emotional disorders.  It places a big emphasis on 21st causes of disease in children, which have not previously been written about in Chinese texts.  It also brings together many varied treatment approaches, thereby showing that acupuncture is an acceptable treatment for the vast majority of children.
