Taking this course, you will

  • Identify the facial features associated with each of the five elements.
  • Analyze how to differentiate the Shen of a child based on the five elements.
  • Recognize key signs of elemental health and imbalance in children.
  • Create an environment that supports a child’s elemental constitution.

Course Overview

The face is a blueprint of the soul. When we are born, each one of us has a unique blend of the five elements that can be seen on the face. CT Holman will discuss how you can determine a child’s five elemental makeup by reading their facial features and Shen. 

Understanding and supporting a child’s five element constitution encourages healthy growth and development.  It can also prevent unhealthy emotional patterns from becoming imprinted in the early years.  Rebecca Avern will discuss some key ways of recognising a child’s five element constitution, which can guide both treatment and lifestyle discussions with parents.

This Course brings together two experts in five element acupuncture and Paediatric Acupuncture.
