According to Kalbantner-Wernicke and Hasse, baby shiatsu (literally translated as "finger pressure") is concerned with finding equilibrium and can help bring about emotional balance in children. Aimed exclusively at infants, the authors teach parents how to treat their infant with gentle pressure on the 12 main energy channels, called meridians (stomach, spleen, lung, etc.) for balancing the flow of energy. The book's format is pleasing and offers attractive photos throughout. VERDICT Libraries with high demand for eastern or holistic medicine might consider. Otherwise, save the twenty bucks, and just provide your baby with lots of loving, hands-on affection. In my house, it was a ma-soo-gee, a giggle-inducing, toddler-corrupted variant of massage.
