How to Choose the Right Acupuncture Points for Children

Are you leery of using too few acupoints to get the desired outcome? Or too many and causing an adverse reaction?

How many acupoints should you treat? How many for infants vs. toddlers vs. young children?

If you can't assess tongue or pulse, how do you know which points to use?

I answer all these questions and discuss techniques for determining your point selection so that you feel confident in your treatment!

Let me know if you have any questions. It does require training to get good at it, but once you're graphing your patients with ease it provides SO much useful info! And it's a great educational tool for your patients.
