What is a Shonishin treatment like?
We use various small tools to rub, stroke and tap particular areas of the body along the channels. We may use small press needles like a plaster when the child goes home to wear overnight. They are removed by the parent the following day.
Does acupuncture hurt?
Most people feel a small pinching sensation or nothing at all. We use thin, sterile disposable needles.
How long is a treatment?
Typically first visits last about 90 minutes and subsequent treatments are between 45-60 minutes long
How many treatments will I need?
Depending on the condition this will vary but at least 4 to 6 treatments are needed to see results.
