Chinese Medical Pediatrics
by Alex Tiberi, L.Ac.
Co-Founder of the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine
This class was originally presented in March of 2010. It is ideal for Acupuncturists, Chinese Herbalists, and students of Oriental medicine. It provides a solid overview of Pediatrics from the perspective of Chinese Medicine. You will learn the specific needs of children and how to apply your training to this special patient population.
Chinese medicine offers many effective, gentle, and safe treatments for most common childhood conditions. These methods have been proven on billions of children over centuries across much of Asia. Learn when and how to apply these techniques to infants, children, and adolescents. Equally important, learn Alex's techniques for managing children and parents, both in their expectations and compliance with dietary and herbal therapy.
Alex Tiberi practiced and taught Oriental medicine for over 30 years.
He was a former clinic director at and founder of the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. Pediatrics was his favorite topic to teach. He felt it should be a primary part of our education and professional practice.
