What Is Shonishin? Shonishin is a gentle, mostly non-insertion style of Japanese acupuncture used to treat babies, toddlers, small children, but also to treat older or sensitive children before puberty. Shonishin is a Japanese term and means ‘Children’s needle therapy’.
We apply pain-free techniques which help to harmonise the child’s energy, and often make them feel calm and relaxed. Shonishin is entirely different from what most people would expect of acupuncture, yet these subtle techniques can have very profound effects.
