Acupuncture for Children - Shonishin - No Needles
Babies and children differ to adults, their meridian energy (qi) system is still developing just as their organs are, treatment involves your child sitting on your lap ( if they older, they can lie on the treatment table) whilst we work the body with gentle techniques. We use various techniques depending on their symptoms and temperament, we work with kids from age 1 month all the way to teens.
Gentle yet effective technique that babies and children love to receive, it translates to Children’s Needle Therapy, small metallic tools gently rub, scrape and tap the skin – this is all that is needed to stimulate their growing energy channels, which have incredible effects on their organ systems.
What is Ear Acupuncture?
The treatment can take 5 – 15 minutes, depending on the size of your child and how hyperactive they are. Your child does not need to sit still. For an acute illness the child will need 2 – 3 treatments in week one, as they respond to energetic treatment. If the illness is chronic, the child will need 1 – 2 treatments per week for 2- 3 months.

Chinese Medicine has treatments for times when you think ” my child has been ill since…” this situation is referred to as a lingering pathogen, which at a low level there is still some kind of pathogen that is affecting your child and we need to strengthen their immune system and meridian energy in order to remove it so they can become balanced and get on with growing and being a kid.
