Upcoming Children's Wellness Clinics

Children's Wellness Clinics

for newborns, infants & children (aka "big kids")

Children's Wellness Clinics are held on the last Saturday of each month. On these Saturdays, we offer 20-minute friendly & personalized sessions, in which your child receives a gentle shonishin massage treatment aimed at:
  • enhancing immunity,
  • treating common pediatric illnesses, and 
  • promoting wellness.
During the sessions, parents and caregivers have an opportunity to:
  • consult regarding children's health conditions, and
  • learn pediatric wellness techniques to practice at home, including acupressure, massage, herbs, teas, and nutritional therapy.

Upcoming Children's Wellness Clinics:

Saturday, March 30
Saturday, April 26
Saturday, May 25

10:00 a.m. - 4:00 pm.

Chinese medicine treatments are a great way to treat & prevent colds, flus & allergies, and to support children's bodies & minds during seasonal transitions.

To schedule a 20-minute session for your child, please call  510-495-5752     
or email

$15 per 20-minute session per child

If your child has a complex health issue, it might be preferable to come for a longer visit before or after Children's Wellness Clinic Saturdays.

What is shonishin?
Shonishin is a gentle, non-invasive healing method which originated in Japan and is based on Chinese medicine acupuncture techniques. A specialized set of small metal tools are used to stroke and tap the skin. These techniques harmonize and fortify the child's vital energy, help clear illness-causing pathogens, and strengthen the child's constitution.
