About The Immune System Support Course

This 12 steps Shonishin immune system support baby massage course aims to support the immune system of your newborn, baby or toddler.

Shonishin is a form of pediatric acupuncture, however, without using needles. It has more the character of a baby massage treatment which focuses on the stimulation of acupressure points. This is accomplished by applying a combination of three techniques: stroking, tapping and classic massage techniques. 

The immune system of a young child is particularly fragile as it is only just developing. This is even more of a problem, if you have stopped breastfeeding, because the baby won’t receive all the valuable nutrients from human milk anymore.

Because of that young children are particularly prone to catching colds and getting sick.

That is why I have created this immune system support massage course for babies and toddlers. It aims to strengthen the baby’s immune system and to activate the baby’s immune response.

Keep in mind that your baby’s immune system is only just developing. Because of that, this treatment can only help to get the most out of your baby’s immune system. However, it does not mean that your child will never ever get sick again.

The goal is to help your baby’s body to deal with health-related threats more easily. In other words, we want your child to be able to fight off such threats more efficiently.

Accordingly, this immune system support baby massage course is for you, if you are looking for natural ways to strengthen your baby’s immune system.

Moreover, this course is for all the mummies and daddies out there who are looking for ways to actively do something for their child during these difficult times.
