This book introduces, explores and clearly explains acupuncture and related techniques used in the treatment of children. The author is a practicing 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. Full treatment protocols are given for 22 common pediatric conditions, with a particular emphasis on treatments which are safe, simple and readily accepted by children. In addition, issues of diet and immunization are explored by the author.
