Did you know that we offer a non-invasive, non-needle, and painless acupuncture treatment for children?
Shonishin is a Japanese acupuncture system used for infants and children, from one month to ten years of age. The treatment involves tapping and brushing along meridians and applying light pressure to acupuncture points. Needles are not typically used on children under 7 years old. Instead we use small tools made of copper, gold-plated, and stainless steel that rub and tap the acupuncture points. Shonishin is practical, cost-effective, and produces positive results! It can be used for health maintenance and support for the treatment of childhood disorders. Children generally find these treatments very relaxing.
Pediatric conditions we commonly treat include asthma, ear infections, ADHD, bed-wetting, bronchitis, cold/flu, colic, constipation, developmental disorders, chronic diarrhea, eczema, fever, insomnia, teething, chronic sinusitis, and urinary problems.
