?  About our Ebooks


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


'Aimed exclusively at infants, the authors teach parents who to treat their infant with gentle pressure on the 12 main energy channels, called meridians (stomach, spleen, lung, etc.) for balancing the flow of energy. The book's format is pleasing and offers attractive photos throughout.'
- Library Journal

'A lovely presented book to encourage parents in sharing shiatsu time with their baby. Karin explains the basic concepts of shiatsu and shows clearly how to support a baby's growth and development using shiatsu. I like the way she also focuses on the wellbeing of the parent as the person doing the shiatsu needs to be well supported too. A great book for all parents to have. It is never too early to begin to experience the benefits of shiatsu.'
- Suzanne Yates, shiatsu practitioner, birth educator and founder of Well Mother

'I can see the altogether positive development of children who are treated with baby shiatsu. Shiatsu seems to be highly beneficial, too, for bonding between children and parents. In this book you can let yourself be taken by the hand and introduced to the world of oriental thought. You will learn, step by step, how to use shiatsu to support your baby.'
