Building a relationship with your baby through shiatsu
Posted on July 25, 2012
Shiatsu can be a way to bond with your child. Touch is a form of communication as well as a tool for relaxation and exercise. You will be given techniques which support your baby’s development, in a way you can enjoy too.
Shiatsu includes elements of massage, as well as stretches, movements and ways to hold your baby.
These are useful additional techniques. Sometimes the baby simply wants to be held in certain areas rather than stroked. Meanwhile, specific stretches and movements can support different aspects of your baby’s development. A basic routine can be taught which you can adapt to your baby’s needs.

You may know of techniques for turning breech or posterior babies, (notably, the use of BL 7, BL 60 and sacral work). Combining these techniques with the core meridian work increases their effectiveness. Sometimes I think the baby turns because it feels reassured by this energetic connection. Sometimes mother or baby has to make an emotional shift at a profound level. I know of babies that have turned into a breech position at the same time the mother experienced a sudden shock (like her mother or partner dying or maybe she is simply afraid of giving birth). The baby senses this stress and also feels afraid and turns away from the birth canal. The Chinese say that a breech baby is holding on to the mother’s heart. Working the bladder channel helps address the fear; fear and shock are often processed by the governing and conception vessels which link closely with the kidneys.
