Raven with Baby

About the Class

This special two-part course focuses on Shonishin, needling and acupressure techniques for children, as well as herbal prescriptions for many common pediatric conditions. Raven will cover conditions that are well within the scope of TCM treatment and which respond well and quickly to TCM. Learn how to discern what is normal in children, what can be addressed with TCM, and when to refer to an allopathic physician. Understand how to teach parents to care for their children so that they can be the first pediatrician in their child’s health care and act with knowledge and confidence. Case histories and stories related to each pediatric condition will be presented from Raven’s 30+ years of clinical practice. (Attendance of both weekends is not required.)

Weekend One
  • Shonishin tools, treatment methods and clinical tips
  • Fevers in babies and children
  • Baby ailments, such as neonatal jaundice, colic & teething
  • Respiratory issues, such as common cold, ear infections, allergies & asthma
  • Live in-house Shonishin demonstrations on children*
Weekend Two
  • Brief review of Shonishin
  • Digestive issues, such as indigestion, stomach pain, diarrhea & vomiting
  • Skin conditions, such as hive, urticaria & impetigo
  • Hyperactivity and related issues
  • Live in-house Shonishin demonstrations on children*
*Due to the unpredictability of children and the challenges of filming them live, webinar attendees will view clearly shot pre-recorded Shonishin demonstrations of similar content.

Shonishin is the Japanese form of acupuncture and acupressure that has traditionally been used for babies and children and continues to be used throughout Japan. Shonishin is a gentle form of acupuncture that is effective, quick, easy to do, and is well received by children. It is traditionally used once a month to maintain wellness, but it is also effectively used to treat numerous conditions that are common in childhood.
