Acupuncture for Childhood and Teenage Anxiety


products tabs

For some years, rates of anxiety amongst children and teenagers have been increasing exponentially. This development has become even more prevalent during the COVID19 era. Acupuncture is an extremely effective and well-tolerated medicine that can turn the lives of anxious children around, without the need for medication.

In this webinar, we will take an in-depth look at the causes of anxiety in childhood and adolescence. We will discuss how to diagnose and treat the condition with acupuncture and non-needle protocols. We will draw upon 5 Element constitutional diagnosis, as well as TCM patterns, in order to understand how every child experiences anxiety in his or her unique way. As Xu Dachun put it, ‘Illnesses may be identical but the people who have them are different’.
