Introduction to Shonishin: Gentle Non-insertive Pediatric Treatment
Bob Quinn, DAOM, LAc
6.5 NCCAOM CEU pending

Limit: 40 participants

For a few hundred years Japanese practitioners have been exploring the use of non-insertive techniques in pediatric care. These techniques involve tapping, pressing, stroking, and vibrating on acupuncture points and channels, in lieu of needling them.It turns out to be often quite enough to shift the typical childhood complaints, such as: bedwetting, temper tantrums, insomnia, poor appetite, allergies, abdominal pain, headaches, asthma, diarrhea, constipation, and so on.

In this one-day training participants will learn a three-pronged approach to pediatric treatment:
1) Core treatment - here we stroke the yang channels in a downward direction
2) Root treatment - here we correct for Five Phase imbalances
3) Symptomatic treatment - here we use our knowledge of point indications to address the chief complaint

Lecture will be held to a bare minimum and hands-on time will be the focus. Participants should bring whatever tools they have. A limited number will be for sale on site.
