This module is part of series and covers two important topics: insomnia and enuresis (bed wetting). Insomnia in babies and children is very common and Acupuncturists are frequently asked to help. Parents kept awake by their children are often desperate to try anything, as they themselves are exhausted. Nocturnal Enuresis is described as involuntary and repeated passage of urine during sleep. It is very common in young children. The age when it is considered to be a real problem depends on the child and the parents, usually when the child starts to spend time away from home staying with friends when it is then an embarrassment. With virtually no western medical cure, acupuncture is an effective solution.

Learn how to effectively treat childhood insomnia while coaching parents with the best strategies.
Understand nocturnal enuresis from a TCM perspective and how best to manage it.

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.
