Treating Children (Shonishin)
Paediatric Japanese Treatments also known as Shonishin, is a form of East Asian medicine which has been helping children feel better for thousands of years. As a medicine which has been assisting children, Shonishin is effective both as preventative care and management of acute and chronic conditions.
Shonishin addresses the need for safe, specialized, non-insertion acupuncture therapy techniques for infants and children (No Needles Inserted). Shonishin involves delicate massage applied to acupuncture channel lines using specialised Japanese paediatric tools designed to stimulate acupuncture points and channels, bring circulation to the surface and move it along the channels. Shonishin treatment can be performed in 15 to 30 minutes depending on the age of the child and severity of the illness. Even the most resistant and guarded child will find Shonishin a relaxing and enjoyable experience.
Shonishin is an effective treatment for a range of common children’s conditions which may include:
- Managing symptoms such as muscular tension often associated with asthma , colds/flues, diarrhoea, vomiting, constipation, bed wetting.
- Management of pain & fatigue related to some auto immune disorders.
Following Shonishin treatment, it is quite common that children may show marked improvement in other aspects of their daily lives. Shonishin treatments can be beneficial in management to ease children through many changes they have to go through.
