Shonishin

A non-invasive type of acupressure that uses small tools to stimulate immune function, improve circulation, and help the body feel calm. Portland Pediatric Acupuncture offers shonishin as a gentle alternative to using needles during treatment.

QST Massage

A research-based massage protocol specifically offered for children on the autism spectrum. This massage helps to restore normal touch sensation, so that children can better integrate sensory information. Portland Pediatric Acupuncture provides training for parents so that they can do the massage at home, with weekly child massage and parental support from Corinne.

Moxibustion
