As an alternative to needles, we utilize a Japanese therapy called Shonishin which was designed for babies and children. Instead of needles, this technique utilizes small tools which are used to roll, scrape, or press on specific acupuncture points. It is especially effective for reducing hyperactivity, anxiety, and irritability, promoting sleep, boosting the immune system, and treating digestive disorders, bedwetting, and chronic colds.
Treatments for Cerebral Palsy and Other Neurological Disorders
Our program for children with cerebral palsy, musculo-skeletal pain, and other neurological conditions, we use hair-thin needles to provide gentle treatments to help invigorate the flow of blood, reduce muscle spasms, relieve pain, and improve gross motor function.
Calm Kids Acupressure
We treat children using the Shonishin method, which creates gentle stimulation of acupoints with small tools instead of needles. This therapy is helpful for calming the mind, reducing anxiety and stress, increasing focus, promoting sleep, and reducing agitation.
