Shonishin

Shonishin is a gentle therapy of Japanese origin, mostly non-invasive, which is suitable for children from birth to about 12 years of age. In involves gently tapping and rubbing the skin with metal tools like little spatulas, working along the meridians and special acupoints. This therapy system is applicable to the same wide spectrum of conditions as regular acupuncture.

I studied Shonishin with Stephen Birch, who is an international expert not only of this paediatric technique but of widely understood acupuncture and scholarly research into Qi.

Please note that as a part of the treatment, I WILL ALSO TEACH YOU, the parent, how to apply simplified Shonishin at home. You will be able to treat your child in between check up, or follow up sessions with me.
