She has also recently completed some study in Japan with Meiji University of integrated Medicine, and is happy to add Shonishin to her skills. Shonishin is a Japanese technique especially for children. It uses no needles but uses methods of stroking and tapping with non invasive tools called "chokishin" and ""yoneyama". It can be used on children as young as 1 month old, up to children of 10 or 11 years old. It can treat Sleep disorders, Digestive conditions, Anxiety, Crying, Allergies, and Behavioural problems among other issues. The most important thing is it is quick, painless and children absolutely love it!
She also offers Cosmetic Acupuncture Japanese style, which includes full body acupuncture, 15 minute Facial Massage and Facial Acupuncture. Japanese facial Acupuncture uses only the highest quality fine sterile disposable needles, which because of their size, do not hurt! The treatment can reduce fine lines, lift jowls, reduce bags under the eyes, while at the same time treating any underlying complaints you may have. The Japanese like to call this bringing back your "shining smile".
