It's in Their Head
Addressing Stagnant Qi in the Heads of Children
Stagnant qi in the head is a much overlooked yet important pattern commonly seen in children. It can cause a wide variety of physical, behavioural 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.
In this real time event we will learn
- To recognise the signs and symptoms of stagnant qi in the head in children
- How to successfully resolve this pattern with acupuncture
- How to successfully resolve this pattern with non-needle techniques
- How to teach parents techniques they can use at home to help their child recover from this imbalance

If the qi in a child’s head is not flowing, their thoughts, emotions, behaviour and even their life does not flow. Simply put, knowing how to treat this pattern makes children, and their families, happy.
