Course Overview
Japanese shonishin is an approach for treating illness and promoting health in infants and toddlers. Similar to Chinese pediatric tui-na, the Japanese approach uses various metal tools for stimulation of the acupuncture channels. Jake Fratkin presents his shonishin protocol that he uses for children under the age of 2 to treat fever, common cold, cough, constipation and diarrhea. It is based on dispersing excess along the yang channels while supporting deficiency along the yin channels. This presentation includes live demonstration on two baby-volunteers.
