Relaxed start in life with Shiatsu

Babies with their sensitive and subtle sensations are particularly responsive to touch. Baby shiatsu is therefore an ideal method of treatment. Literally translated the Japanese term “Shiatsu” means finger pressure. “Shi” stands for finger, “Atsu” for pressure. With baby shiatsu parents gently stimulate the child‘s energy pathways, which are not yet mature. In doing so, they address their particularities, needs and wishes, supporting their baby in its development. In addition to numerous practical suggestions, the book also includes basic knowledge about baby shiatsu, the development of children from the point of view of the east and the west and tips for everyday life. With the help of the instructions parents can easily follow and learn the ideas presented.
