Baby Shiatsu

Babies feel intuitively what scientists have needed painstaking research to establish: being touched and caressed is good for you.

It makes you clever and cheerful, strengthens the parent-child bond, and lays the foundation for a healthy life.

With baby shiatsu you can support your child's development. The gentle pressure-point massage meets the needs of tiny babies. This book shows you the various shiatsu techniques step by step. The first year of life is divided into four sections:

· one to three months
· four to six months
· seven to nine months
· ten to twelve months

There are also specific techniques to help with health problems, which can, for example, soothe tummy ache and counteract difficulty in sleeping. And there's more:

· Creating a state of calm
· Easing wind
· Calming the stomach
· Breathing freely
· For a good sleep
· Strengthening the immune system
