Shonishin or Pediatric therapy was developed in Japan over 400 years ago to address Children diseases and ailments. Children are gentle souls and they needed to be treated with soft therapies so their body and their immunity can develop and they can become emotionally and physically stronger.
This type of therapy can be used to treat behavior conditions such as ADHD; emotional conditions such as depression, anxiety and physical conditions such as pain, lack of growth and development.

Gentle and Fun treatment:
The shonishin treatment consists of pressing, rubbing, tapping and brushing the skin with some special tools to provide a gentle stimulation over the acupuncture points. During the therapy, we teach the parents how to perform the treatment at home to create a continuous care. Cumulative care decreases symptoms and it increases the child’s overall health. Shonishin is painless therefore children are usually very comfortable with the therapy. Acupuncture is sometimes combined with the therapy especially if the child is older, over 9 years old, and he or she can understand that they cannot move. It is important to note that parents have to be in the room during the therapy at all times. The child cannot be left unattended.
Traditional medicine offers many treatments for many conditions but most of the time it only treated symptoms and it causes some side effects. Shonishin therapy doesn’t have any side effects and it is effective to relieve symptoms and it has a curative effect. If you have any questions, please, feel free to contact us directly.
