Non-insertive child acupuncture, also known as Shonishin in Japan, is treatment for ages ranging from infants to teens. The techniques are gentle and effective for acute or chronic conditions such as common colds and flus or bedwetting and temper tantrums, for example. Without symptoms it is used as effective preventative medical treatment.
