Paediatric Wellness Care

Your child is in safe hands with our gentle, safe and effective treatment.

Our practitioners have experience with Shonishin Non-Invasive Acupuncture and Paediatric Osteopathy, providing you with great tips to settle into parenthood. Bring your baby in for wellness visits, where your child’s health is enhanced using non painful techniques such as acupressure, Shonishin and moxibustion, or osteopathy. We work with baby’s to improve the child’s immune system, organ function, and overall development.

If your baby has specific issues, we can address those issues using gentle, safe treatment techniques to provide your baby with the relief and healing they require.

Shonishin Non- Invasive Acupuncture

Shonishin is a Non-Invasive form of Acupuncture developed specifically to respond to the needs of children. Instead of needles gentle stimulation all over the body is performed with a tool, which is rather like a nail, by different stroking techniques. In addition to the stroking techniques, different tapping techniques are used in certain areas and vibration techniques on acupuncture points.
The treatment is simple and effective, and the successes speak for itself.  Children love this treatment as it has a pleasant feel to them. Parents are very accepting of the treatment as it is gentle and non-invasive.  We look at the body as a whole, addressing health concerns that are chronic or subclinical, meaning colds, flu, and digestive complaints, colic, wind, feeding, sleep and settling issues.
