This module is the third in a five-part series that provides you with the essential tools to expand your acupuncture practice to include treating babies and children. Digestive health is the foundation of childhood development and constipation is common, either as a presenting complaint or as an additional symptom to another illness. Often just regulating the bowels can be enough to clear conditions such as abdominal pain, insomnia, eczema, asthma etc. This module also covers aspects of diet that are most relevant in the treatment of children, based on traditional Chinese principles. In addition, in this module we discuss chronic diarrhoea, the most common form in the clinic, and how to treat it with acupuncture and with dietary advice.

Renewals normally come back to us after 30 days.
If your accreditation body is not listed under the "Approved" section, you may find it under the "Pending" section. That means that it is either currently pending approval, or that it is available for you to request: "[Upon Request]". New course approvals usually come back to us after 45 days.
