Pediatric Needle-free Acupuncture
Treating Children with Oriental Medicine
Shoni-Shin (shon=little, ni=children, shin= needle) is a Japanese style of needle-free treatments for infants and children. This method originated several hundred years ago in Southwest Japan.
Small metal tools designed specifically for children stimulate channels and acupuncture points without penetrating the skin. It does not cause any discomfort to the child. A child’s energy is very near the surface of the body and is easy to access which is why children tend to respond so quickly to treatments
It is typically used on babies and children between the ages of 0-12 years old. In Japan parents regularly bring their children for Shoni shin treatment of many common childhood illnesses as well as for monthly “maintenance” visits to maintain health and improve growth and development Shoni shin treatments involve the use of a variety of rounded or blunt instruments which are used to stimulate acupuncture channels. Younger children can get Shoni shin, while older and more mature children may opt to use very fine needles.We also have powerful herbs that can keep you little one healthy. The less antibiotics and western medication your child receives the healthier he/she will be. I can also help you by keeping an herbal pharmacy to catch illness early to avoid sever conditions.
