Paediatric Treatments

A friend of mine told me about an experience treating a child in clinic.

A lovely woman brought her 2 year old son in for treatment. The child had a bit of a wheezy cough and also some skin issues: white pimple like appearances on the forearms.

Enquiries were made about diet and it turned out the kid was eating a lot of butter. Big chunks of it. Generally the diet was also influenced by rich fatty foods too!

So a Lung Phlegm and Spleen/Stomach stagnation diagnosis was made.

Some simple acupuncture technique was performed. Very quick shallow insertion and removal of the well known child points on the hand at the knuckle creases and due to the lung issue they did BL 13 (Lung point) with the same technique.

The child was needled in the mothers arms which I am sure was a very beautiful and privileged scene to witness! However only one hand was able to be done as my friend wasn’t quick enough after the child quickly recoiled and squashed up into his mum!

From the dispensary my friend found the following: Wangshi Baochiwan pills.
These are very cute tiny tiny patent pills for children. It is a well known pill for phlegm, asthma and cold in China.  It was advised for dosage to take one pill for every month of age, which I thought was cute. So about 24 tiny tiny pills a day. This could be split to morning and evening.

Representing a journey to our own centre and back out into the world, labyrinths have long been used as meditation and prayer tools.  It is an archetype with which we can have a direct experience. We can walk this metaphor for life's journey. It is a symbol that creates a sacred space and place and takes us out of our ego to "That Which Is Within."

Our Community Dance will honour Global Water Dances a world event – 24 hour series of dances around the globe, centred around water issues. “Flow, the medium of dance/movement, can connect community, just as water connects people.”
