American acupuncturists have been reticent to treat infants and small children, and yet Oriental medicine offers the most effective approach for common pediatric complaints when using Chinese herbal products, acupuncture, and Japanese shoneishin.

Jake Fratkin, practitioner of Japanese acupuncture with over 30 years of clinical experience, discusses in this webinar the etiology and pathophysiology of infants and toddlers according to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) theory, why the primary etiology in infants is over-production and accumulation of phlegm, and the cause of diseases in infants and children according to TCM theory. Attend this webinar and find out the issues of administration of herbs and compliance, as well as psychological and behavioral traits the practitioner needs in order to cultivate trust and enthusiasm in their young patients.

  • Learn important aspects of Pediatric Physiology and Energetics.
