Raven smiling with happy toddlerRaven returns to Mayway with a two-part course focused on detailed acupuncture and herbal treatments for specific conditions she has seen in her 30+ years of clinical practice.

Raven will cover conditions that are well within the scope of TCM treatment and which respond well and quickly to TCM. You will learn Shonishin, needling and acupressure techniques for children, as well as herbal prescriptions for many common pediatric conditions. Learn how to discern what is normal in children, what can be addressed with TCM, and when to refer to an allopathic physician. Case histories and stories related to each pediatric condition will be presented from Raven’s experience as a midwife, a mother, and a TCM practitioner. Return to your clinic with many clinical pearls for immediate implementation with your pediatric patients.

Weekend One delves into:

  • Shonishin tools, treatment methods and clinical tips
  • Fevers in babies and children
  • Baby ailments, such as neonatal jaundice, colic & teething
  • Respiratory issues, such as common cold, ear infections, allergies & asthma
  • Live in-house Shonishin demonstrations on children. Due to the unpredictability of children and the challenges of filming them live, webinar attendees will view clearly shot prerecorded Shonishin demos.

Weekend Two explores:

  • Brief review of Shonishin
  • Digestive issues, such as indigestion, stomach pain, diarrhea & vomiting
  • Skin conditions, such as hive, urticaria & impetigo
  • Hyperactivity and related issues
  • Live in-house Shonishin demonstrations on children. Due to the unpredictability of children and the challenges of filming them live, webinar attendees will view clearly shot prerecorded Shonishin demos.

RAVEN LANG, L.Ac., O.M.D.

Fifty years ago Raven gave birth to her first child. Within the following year she was teaching classes in natural childbirth and began her education in direct midwifery. In 1972 she authored the first book on home birth and opened the first birth center in North America.

For the next ten years she worked as a midwife and founded the Institute of Feminine Arts, the first non-medical school for midwifery in the United States. She shared her knowledge with apprentices and students during each step of her journey. In 1982 Raven began her studies in TCM and a year later was blessed with a three-year apprenticeship with Dr. Miriam Lee, a nurse midwife from China and one of the first licensed acupuncturists in California. Raven incorporates her knowledge of midwifery, mothering, and traditional medicine (both American and Asian) in her work and brings a wealth of experience to those she serves. She is a dynamic teacher and teaches subjects as diverse as the politics and history of women’s health, parenting, the science and art of obstetrics, and pediatrics. Her teaching reaches into the well of life, using poetry, art, politics, mothering, psychology, the medical arts, and unique instructions in the skills of observation. For over thirty years, Raven practiced TCM in Santa Cruz, California specializing in women’s medicine and pediatrics. Now retired, Raven lives on the Northern California coast with her children and grandchildren, and spends time farming, painting, writing, and working in her gardens.

SHONISHIN

Shonishin is the Japanese form of acupuncture and acupressure that has traditionally been used for babies and children and continues to be used throughout Japan. Shonishin is a gentle form of acupuncture that is effective, quick, easy to do, and is well received by children. It is traditionally used once a month to maintain wellness, but it is also effectively used to treat numerous conditions that are common in childhood. Needling and acupressure techniques will be taught, herbal prescriptions will be given, cases will be presented, and there will be demonstrations.

PARENTING

Parenting, a job that often comes to those who are inexperienced, is a topic that is as important as treating the child. We will discuss how to teach parents to care for their children so that they can be the first pediatrician in their child’s health care and act with knowledge and confidence.

COMMON PEDIATRIC CONDITIONS

Pediatric conditions that are typically seen in the acupuncturist’s office will be discussed and detailed treatments using Shonishin and/or traditional acupuncture and herbal prescriptions will be presented.
