About The Abdominal Pain Baby Massage Course

This 13 steps Shonishin abdominal pain baby massage course aims to relieve tummy aches in your baby or toddler.

Stomach pain and stomach cramps in babies and toddlers are almost always related to issues of the digestive system. Such issues can be quite diverse. Therefore, parents often have a hard time to find the right remedy to help their babies or toddlers.

That is why the treatment that I teach in this abdominal pain baby massage course addresses the baby’s digestive system as a whole. Therefore, it is suitable for any kind of stomach pain, no matter the suspected cause.

It aims to balance and strengthen the baby’s digestive system in order to ease her tummy aches.

Moreover, it also addresses emotional reactions to pain, which – over time – can feed into the problem by reinforcing the problems that trigger the baby’s stomach pain.

Accordingly, this course is for you, if you are looking for home remedies to relieve tummy aches in your baby or toddler.


If you are looking for remedies for tummy aches in a newborn (< 3 months), please refer to my baby colic massage course (Approach 2). It addresses similar issues as the abdominal pain course, however, it is more suitable for newborns.

Moreover, if you are looking for remedies for an upset stomach in a baby, please refer to my poor appetite baby massage course. It deals with issues related to nausea, vomiting, stomach pain and bloating.

About Shonishin

Shonishin is a form of Japanese pediatric acupuncture, however, without using needles. It has more the character of a massage treatment for babies and children, which consists of stroking, tapping and classic massage techniques. 

Shonishin was developed in the 17th century and predominantly applied by health practitioners in Japan. Today, it is considered to be the most effective alternative treatment for children-related issues, according to leading experts in the field.
