Traditional Chinese Medicine and Autism




A PopTalk! titled Reframing Autism, with Dr. Melanie Katin, DACM, L.Ac., will take place from 6:15 to 7:15 p.m. on August 9 in Chicago. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is one of the methods of treatment parents will seek out for autism and spectrum disorders because these are symptomatic problems that other therapies do not address.

        TCM excels in moderating issues related to gastrointestinal disorders, sleep disorders, sensory processing disorders and ADHD-type behaviors, which are all concurrent with the autism diagnosis. In this talk, attendees will learn basic information about nutritional strategies, acupressure for autism and qigong for autism. Once these quality of life disrupters are calmed and quieted, a child can have better success in responding to their other therapies, and thrive.

        Katin, on the faculty of the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, has specialized in the treatment of children since 2004.

Admission: $5 donation. Location: 65 E. Wacker Pl., Room 17-6, Chicago. For more information, call 773-477-4822 or 888-729-4811 or visit PacificCollege.edu.
