Based on the ancient classics of China, Shonishin (Sho=little, Ni = children, shin= needle) was developed in the 1600s in the Osaka region of Japan. It uses gentle specialised, mainly non-inserted techniques involving rhythmic stroking, rubbing, tapping and pressing the skin to give gentle stimulation. These harmonize and fortify the child’s vital energy and strengthen the child’s constitution.
Shonishin treats children from newborn to 10 years old As the child’s bio-energetic system is not fully formed, it is easier to access, hence, children response much faster to treatment than in adults. Stimulation of specific points in the body causes the nervous system to produce endorphins or other natural chemicals and hormones to support the healing process. It is safe and there are no negative side effects and can be used as a supplement to traditional medical care.
Children find it comfortable and pleasurable, and parents are encouraged to be present during the treatment. A treatment can be done in 10-20 minutes depending on the child’s age and severity of illness.
What can it treat :
Failure to thrive syndrome Weak constitution Colic, excessive night crying, temper tantrums Indigestion, GERD, constipation, and diarrhoea Night terrors Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) Allergies, asthma and colds Eczema and hives Ear infections Bedwetting Stuttering Cerebral palsy Spina bifida
The beauty of Shonishin is that it's simple, gentle and effective!
