Treatment for children

Jenny also practices shonishin, which is a Japanese treatment method developed for children, without the use of needles. A set of small metal tools are used to gently stroke and tap the skin, it is completely pain free and non invasive.

It is most effective on babies and young children, but can still be used up to around the age of 12. Shonishin treatment can be carried out in very little time, which is handy as children don’t like to stay still for long! It can also bring about changes quickly, as small children are responsive to minimal treatment, so the benefits can often be seen after just a few treatments.

Shonishin can be used for a wide range of conditions common to babies and young children, such as;

  • Asthma, and other respiratory problems
  • Digestive complaints, such as diarrhea and constipation
  • Issues with sleep, behaviour or emotions
  • Urinary disturbances
  • Headaches
  • Poor vitality and recurrent infections

This list is by no means exhaustive, if you would like to know if shonishin could help your child then please do get in touch.

At the start of each session Jenny would listen with great care and attention to how I was feeling, and her approach always felt carefully and sensitively judged. Jenny was also brilliant explaining what she was doing and why. I felt very lucky to have found such a gentle person administering such a powerful treatment and would highly recommend her.
