"Treating Children with Oriental Medicine"

"Healing with Sho-Ni-Shin"

Soma Glick D.O.M.(NM), L.Ac., CHom.

June 12-13, 2010

SWAC, Boulder, Colorado




This comprehensive course covers the treatment of children
from newborn to 10 years of age. It will greatly benefit
practitioners who wish to add various Oriental techniques
into their existing pediatric practice AND those who
have never worked with children before.

The course is tailored for immediate results in
clinical practice and includes:

  • Identification of diagnosis and treatment of children, and how that differs from treating adults
  • Acupuncture points, herbal formulas and homeopathy for acute disorders such as fevers, respiratory and digestive problems that form the core of pediatric practice
  • Long-term management techniques of some chronic illnesses such as allergies, asthma and eczema
  • Dietary and lifestyle recommendations
  • Preventative tips to maximize the health of pediatric patients
  • Practical demonstration of Sho-Ni-Shin on several children on Day 2
