Acupuncture for baby and child

Chinese medicine techniques such as Shonishin, tui na and acupuncture are often used for children and babies. We specialise in a form of Japanese treatment for babies and children called 'Shonishin' where needles are usually not used. Treatment is more like massage, with rhythmic movements and tapping of various parts of the body.

Where we do use very fine needles, the small number of points chosen and the stimulation time is shorter than with adults. Needling children is easy and they can be surprisingly receptive to it.

With a good needle technique, they hardly notice the needles and instead become interested in the process and absorbed in the story of what is happening in their own bodies.
