Description - Pediatric Acupuncture by May Loo
This introduction explores and clearly explains acupuncture and related techniques used in the treatment of children. The author is a practising pediatrician with many years' experience in both working with children and as an acupuncture practitioner. The book introduces important concepts of childhood development that integrate conventional theories with the Traditional Chinese Medicine theories presented in the classic texts. It covers a variety of acupuncture techniques, including non-invasive approaches (such as electrical stimulation, laser and magnet therapy) which are particularly helpful with children. Since the modern child may already be taking medications with side effects, the book looks at acupuncture treatment for the side-effects of 20 common pediatric medications. Finally, full treatment protocols are given for 30 common pediatric conditions, with a particular emphasis on treatments which are safe, simple and readily accepted by children.
