Shonishin is a unique and specialised form of acupuncture that was developed
about 250 years ago in Japan to treat babies and children.
Derived from Traditional Chinese Medicine, Shonishin recognises the fact that children do not like to be needled and cannot be considered as miniature adults.
Hence, this therapy includes a variety of specialised instruments that can be
pressed, rubbed, tapped or scraped on the skin of a child to give different kinds
of gentle stimulation.
Great care has been taken in adapting the use of acupuncture and related techniques for the treatment of children. Shonishin acupuncture is mostly non-invasive and thus not uncomfortable or frightening for children.
