About The Baby Colic Massage Course

This Shonishin baby colic massage course aims to relieve colic in newborns, as well as colic-like symptoms in babies of 3+ months. The course actually consists of 2 courses, a 10 steps and a 12 steps course, because colic in babies can be caused by various underlying issues.

This baby colic massage treatment is a completely safe way of colic relief. Actually, it is one of the oldest known and most effective baby colic remedies.

It is also a great natural alternative treatment to baby colic medicine, which often comes with many side effects.

Accordingly, this baby colic massage course is for you, if you are looking for natural colic remedies to help a colic baby with typical colic-related symptoms (such as excessive crying, fussiness, sleep issues etc.) as well as their underlying issues.

On top of that, the treatment also includes steps which help a colic baby to settle.

Moreover, this baby colic massage course is for you, if your baby is older than 3 months, but still shows signs of colic.

Having colicky symptoms at that age usually does not qualify as “colic” according to most scientists and GPs. Instead, this phenomenon is often referred to as “prolonged or excessive crying”.

However, calling it differently does not make it less of a problem for parents.

Therefore, this course also addresses the issue of “prolonged and excessive crying” in older babies (3+ months).

Finally, this baby colic massage course is for you, if your newborn (i.e. a baby of up to 3 months of age) does not suffer from colic, but has gastrointestinal problems, including stomach pain, stomach cramps, gas or wind.

For such issues, I would normally recommend my abdominal pain course. However, the colic course is more suitable for newborns.

If that’s you, please apply the second approach of the colic course!
