Shonishin is one of my favorite things to do when treating children.  They love it! My own kids beg me for it.  It not only makes them feel good but it works!  Shonishin translates as "little needle".  It was developed in Japan 2000 years ago, adapted from the Chinese Acupuncture theories. 

In Japan, preventative care for children is utilized by having Shonishin Clinics for children once a month.  These clinics are held on the week of the full moon and are called Full Moon Kids Clinics.  We are excited to bring this model of preventative care to you!  Little Owl Medicine and Portland Pediatric Acupuncture are joining forces to bring you an amazingly helpful and wonderfully fun drop in clinic every month.  To maximize our ability to reach more families we are alternating clinic sites each month.  Portland Pediatric Acupuncture is on the west side of the river and is kicking off our inaugural clinic, October 21st, 2018.  

These clinics are $20 for the 1st child/ $10 for the second child/$30 max per family regardless of number of children.

Hooray! You do not need to schedule a treatment time.  Drop in between 12:00-4:00 pm. We are choosing a drop in clinic model to allow families flexibility in timing.  This may mean that you will have to wait a few minutes, but our clinics are kid friendly and this also gives families a chance to meet each other growing their community of support.  

During this clinic your child (or children) will receive a Shonishin treatment for overall health and wellness. Treatments generally take about 15 minutes.  Receiving twelve of these treatments a year can help to increase immunity (fewer sick days!), support digestive health, promote restful sleep and support emotional health.  When treatment is consistent, problems that may arise along the way are seen and treatment can be adjusted for those issues.  If a bigger issue has come up in between the treatments, a discussion can be had about scheduling treatments to address that particular problem. 

We are excited to be able to offer this model of preventative care to our families and cannot wait to see you there. Please contact us with any questions and feel free to pass this information on to friends and family!
