Shonishin: Paediatric Acupuncture

Shonishin is a highly specialised form of needle-free “acupuncture” for infants and children, originating in the Osaka region of Japan in the 1700’s. It remains a primary form of treatment for children in Japan and the shonishin approach is gaining popularity around the world. Shonishin techniques are safe and gentle and include rhythmic stroking, rubbing, tapping, and light pressure to the skin. The techniques utilised are beautifully calming and work to harmonize the child’s vital energy, and strengthen the child’s constitution. The treatments are specialised and are designed to be comfortable and pleasurable for the child; results from the treatment are often obtained quickly and may be quite dramatic, even with very light and short treatments.

Shonishin is used to treat a wide variety of problems, including:
  • Colic, indigestion, reflux, constipation, and diarrhea
  • Anxiety, poor sleep, night terrors
  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Allergies, asthma, and colds
  • Eczema and hives
  • Ear infections
  • Bedwetting
  • Stuttering
  • Failure to thrive
  • Weak constitution, recurrent immune disorders
