In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), acupuncture needles are inserted into certain points on the skin. This unblocks the flow through the body of a life force known as qi (chi). TCM practitioners believe qi is essential to wellbeing. However, these two needle sets are used in Shonoshin therapy. This is a non-invasive technique for children. The needle sets each contain three sizes of ‘Broom’ needle. The skin is scratched with brushes, combs and massage rollers during Shonoshin therapy to stimulate the acupuncture points.
