Shonishin: Paediatric Acupuncture

Shōnishin is a unique, gentle form of needle-free “acupuncture” developed in Japan specifically for the needs of babies and children. Rather than using needles (as none of us like the idea of sticking pins in little ‘uns), in Shōnishin a special tool is used for rhythmical stroking, rubbing, tapping, vibration and light pressure to the skin, acupuncture points and meridians (Wernicke T, 2014). The treatments are quick (generally no longer than 10-15 minutes) and are designed to be comfortable and pleasurable. Children love the gentle touch that the technique offers. It is designed to be beautifully calming, to harmonize the child’s vital energy, and strengthen the child’s constitution.


Through her own experiences, Miranda has practiced, refined and proven her successful approaches to maintaining naturally healthy babies and kids, and the impact this has as they develop through childhood and adolescence.
