Shonishin is a Japanese acupressure technique that is well suited to babies and young children. Acupuncture channels and points are stimulated with a light stroking or pressing technique with small tools, sometimes even shells or stones. It can be used to treat all the typical childhood complaints such as colic, digestive problems, rashes, colds, etc. Even more effective, is the use of monthly shonishin on healthy young ones to help them maintain a state of wellness. It will calm them down, help them sleep better, and boost their immune function.
As you can see in the above picture, children enjoy the process of shonishin and might even enjoy “playing doctor” with it at home. It is a safe, painless, non-invasive way to help our babies and children maintain good health.
