I recently found an interesting article on the World Acupuncture Blog comparing Japanese style acupuncture to Chinese style acupuncture. The blog mostly discusses the advantages of Japanese style acupuncture, and even has a video treating children! I love the idea of using the red balloon for a distraction when treating children, and I also feel it's important to let the kids "help" and be able to see what is going on.
And on that pediatrics note, Chinese Medicine Notes wrote a great post about learning to treat children with Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)- I can't wait to hear more about this, as I feel a lot of parents are more ready that ever to treat their kids without using too many drugs.
The Acupuncture Relief Project is doing really well over in Nepal. They have posted pictures of them treating - up to 10 hours a day! They are busy, but are enjoying being able to help so many people.
