About The General Health Baby Massage Course

First and foremost, the Care About Little Ones baby massage course for relaxation and general health is the perfect course for all parents out there who want to pamper their newborns, babies or toddlers!

However, this treatment does more!

Although what I teach you in the Care About Little Ones course resembles a classic baby massage, this treatment is much more effective than a classic baby massage.

And that’s because it is TCM-based. In other words, it includes the stimulation of acupressure points as well as techniques which are applied in reflexology.

On top of that, one part of this course is dedicated to teaching you baby face massage techniques.

The aim of this unique combination is to help your newborn, baby or toddler with general health-related issues.

In fact, the treatment addresses a wide range of typical baby-related problems, particularly gastrointestinal issues and a weak immune system. However, it also includes steps which deal with teething, ear and nose problems and many more.

Moreover, the Care About Little Ones baby massage treatment includes steps which are dedicated to soothing a baby and helping her to settle. It also aims to balance the baby’s autonomous nervous system, which is responsible for stress management and relaxation.

That is why your baby will find this treatment relaxing too. In so far, it can also be applied as part of a daily routine for sleep preparation.

Finally, this treatment has proven very useful as a means of bonding between the baby and the parent.

About TCM

TCM is short for “Traditional Chinese Medicine”. It is based on the belief that Qi (which is just a different word for the body’s energy) flows through the body and nurtures the organs and muscles.

It is responsible for a person’s phyiscal, emotional and mental health. If the body is not in balance, Qi can get stuck and cause health-related problems. Because of that, Traditional Chinese Medicine aims to restore the body’s balance.
