Shonishin/Acupuncture are a great way to boost your child’s overall health and immunity; and its safe, natural, effective and drug-free.  Chinese herbal remedies given in a tincture, teapill or powder form are also beneficial for some cases.  

Shonishin is a Japanese needle-less approach to treating children with meridian and acu-therapy.  Acupuncture points are used in the same way as they are with acupuncture needles, but the therapy is done with special tools on the surface of the body with tapping and brushing techniques to activate acupoints and promote health.

Acutonics, or tuning fork therapy may also be used on acupuncture points. This pleasant treatment stimulates acupuncture points with subtle vibration.  The forks are held so that the child can hear the gentle hum of the forks, the sound is healing and in of itself.  The forks are also placed directly on acupuncture points, and a gentle vibration is felt.
