Conclusion Anxiety, stress management and pain scores were the most improved. Wellbeing scores also improved, on average, by two points on the Likert scale. Patients have stated that ‘being listened to’ and ‘being heard’ were important factors when describing how Shiatsu had helped.

As I put together my slides, I can't help but see my talk evolving to encompass both " integrative " medicine and what I like to refer to as quackademic medicine, but that's not surprising. The two phenomenon are related, and it's hard to determine which has a more pernicious effect on science in medicine.One aspe...
