About Paediatric Acupuncture Shonishin

Shonishin children’s needle therapy uses non-invasive gentle techniques that are well tolerated by babies and young children. These simple stroking, rubbing and tapping techniques can also be taught to parents to do at home.

Shonishin recognises that children do not like needles and has developed non-invasive techniques, which are not frightening to the child. The channels and points are stimulated by gently stroking, rubbing or tapping with a variety of tools. These different kinds of stimulation have a strong therapeutic effect.

The general treatment can be very useful for improving the child’s vital energy and strengthening their constitution.

Treatment will help symptoms to naturally improve and to give a greater sense of well-being. As a result, treatment helps to make the child less prone to illness.
