Acupuncture for Children

Shonishin (acupuncture for children) is a specialized form of treatment for infants and children, which focuses on gentle, specialized, mostly non-inserted treatment techniques that children find comfortable and even pleasurable. Dramatic results can be obtained even with very light treatment.

Shonishin techniques involve rhythmic stroking, rubbing, tapping, and pressing the skin to give different kinds of gentle stimulation. These techniques harmonize and fortify the child’s vital energy, and strengthen the child’s constitution.

Shonishin is used to treat a wide variety of problems, such as colic, excessive night crying, bedwetting, diarrhea, indigestion, weak constitution.
