Shiatsu for Cancer and Palliative Care

This article describes a study that measured how effective Shiatsu treatments were for treating cancer patients and palliative care patients in an outpatient clinic. The patients were referred for Shiatsu treatments for help with pain, stress, anxiety, nausea, and insomnia.

The results showed “considerable improvements in both presenting symptoms and perceptions of wellbeing”.

“Anxiety, stress management and pain scores were the most improved. Wellbeing scores also improved.”
