A Yoneyama is a traditional tool in acupuncture and is non-invasive. An arrow-shaped tool with multi-purpose sides, corners and angles, it’s a perfect tool for use on children and sensitive individuals.
This Yoneyama needle tool is perfect for use in Toyohari and Shonishin practices. Both gentle, non-invasive styles of acupuncture, these are popular with pediatric patients. Due to the Yoneyama’s shape, each side and corner can be used for different levels of stimulation via pressure, rubbing and scraping along the skin.
