Acupuncture for kids

The first thing out of any parent’s mouth is “Needles?? No way, my kid won’t like that.”  Yep.  100% agree.  That is what is awesome about Shonishin, or Japanese Pediatric Acupuncture.  All of the implements used do NOT break the skin.  These metal implements look like knitting needles, or tubes and are used exclusively on the skin, no insertion.  Most kids feel like they are being tickled. As with adult medicine, Shonishin can be applied for all things related to a child’s health, be it allergies, behavioral problems, digestive problems, skin issues, or frequent colds and flus.  I can also use these tools on grown-ups who have a needle phobia or faint easily from needles.
