I attended a study day at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine with Rebecca Avern. She is an acupuncturist specialising in paediatrics. She heads the clinical programme at the college of Integrated Chinese Medicine and is the author of Acupuncture for Babies, Children and Teenagers.
Her lecture was about how we can help teenagers with mental health issues. The course covered adolescence from the Chinese medicine perspective, common adolescent aetiologies, the practicalities with working with teenagers.
The aim of the course was to understand how acupuncture can treat teenagers with
- Teenage anxiety and depression
- Self Harm
- Eating disorders
It was a very informative and inspirational lecture, and form my experience in treating teenagers, they respond very quickly to treatment .
I offer a special price of £35 when I treat teenagers and students.
