What is Shoni-shin

shoni-shin
Tools in a Shoni-shin kit, used to gently tap and brush on top of the skin

Shoni-shin is a Japanese needle free technique that uses the same meridian system as acupuncture does, without the use of needles or penetration of the skin. It is very gentle and especially suited for treatment of children. It is most often used on children 10 and younger, however it can also be used for adults who are sensitive to needles.┬áIt uses a series of tools to brush along meridians and stimulate points to remove blocks and move energy. A child’s energy system is sensitive and more on the surface of the body than adults. This method is an effective way to give a child acupuncture without stress, and it can work very quickly.
