Sho-ni-shin is a Japanese pediatric needle-less technique that can be used safely and effectively newborns through 10 years of age.  Also, Shonishin is a great technique for anyone with fear of needles.

"I have a fear of needles, so at first Dr. Deb used needle-less Shonishin technique, but after a couple of weeks she asked if she could “needle” me and I said, “Sure; I trust you.” Her kind, sweet, calming nature had instilled such trust that I truly was not afraid of the needles at all!

In Fall of 2012, Dr. Deb had the good fortune to travel to Dharamsala, India and participate in Dr. Soma's advanced 12-day sho-ni-shin training. Afternoons were happily spent treating women and children from the Tibetan community.
