Stagnant qi in the head is a much overlooked yet important pattern commonly seen in children. It can cause a wide variety of physical, behavioral and emotional symptoms which may blight a child’s life.

We will look at what causes this pattern, its manifestations and, most importantly, what we can do to help. We will look at what we as acupuncturists can do in the clinic with both needles and non-needle techniques, as well as what we can teach parents to do at home.

It’s no exaggeration to say that promoting the smooth flow of qi in the head of a child can change the course of their life for the better. You will come away knowing when this needs to be done and how to do it.
