Shonishin (children's needle therapy) is a style of acupuncture used on children that developed over 250 years ago in Japan. Recognising the fact that children do not like being needled, this therapy has developed specialised treatment techniques, many of which are non-invasive and thus not uncomfortable or frightening to the child and can be used on newborn babies through to 14 year old children.
Shonishin can help the following conditions:
Digestive disorders such as indigestion, diarrhoea, constipation and colic
Respiratory disorders such as nasal catarrh, bronchial asthma or asthmatic bronchitis
The treatment is very quick as children tend to respond rapidly within 20-30 minutes.
