Food allergies are on the rise in children in the West. Acupuncture can be used to effectively lessen a child's reaction to an allergen and, in some cases, prevent it altogether. From the Chinese medicine perspective, the problem lies not with the food but with an underlying imbalance in the child's qi. Correcting this imbalance is the key to successful treatment. This course will guide you as to how to identify and treat the most common imbalances found.

Kiiko Matsumoto Style acupuncture (KMS) has become well established as a successful acupuncture system. This approach reaches a diagnosis using palpation to find pressure pain related to root causes of health disorders, and then checks for the successful resolution of those pressure pains.
Kiiko will demonstrate how the fight or fight response is related to many chronic complaints, including chronic pain, digestive disorders, respiratory problems, and more. The course will show how to confirm this connection with palpation diagnosis, and use appropriate treatment with acupuncture. Evaluation and resolution of pressure pain on the hara, the SCM muscle, the rhomboids, and the soft tissue above the trochanter is included in ANS diagnosis and treatment.
This recorded course features 9 different live cases, with clear close up camera work and written text.
Kiiko Matsumoto is a licensed acupuncturist, internationally recognized for her scholarly work interpreting the Chinese Classics and her unique and practical acupuncture style that integrates the work of important Japanese masters. An author on numerous acupuncture texts, she maintains a private practice in Boston and frequently lectures around the world.
