These combine in a simple but effective form of treatment used to promote health and general well-being, as well as to cure illness and prevent future problems. In this straight-forward step-by-step guide, Oliver Cowmeadow introduces us to the ways in which Shiatsu can be beneficial to both the person giving and person receiving.
