Shonishin (children’s needle therapy) is a unique and specialized pediatric style of acupuncture that developed over 250 years ago.[frame align=”left”][/frame] It recognizes that many children do not like needles and thus developed specialized treatment techniques, many of which are non- invasive and therefore not frightening to the child.
Shonishin focuses on gentle, specialized, mostly non-inserted techniques that children find comfortable.
The basic routine can also be taught to parents so they continue the treatment at home. This not only reinforces the treatment and frequency of sessions but also involves the parents so they can actively partcipitate in the treatment of their children.
Shonishin can be used to treat a variety of problems such as: Weak constitution
