Shiatsu has been helpful for my irregular and painful menstrual cycles. I came in for a treatment when cramps were just starting and I fully expected them to get worse throughout the day, as they normally do. But following the session, they had dissipated completely. My next period came without any PMS symptoms at all.


When I went for a treatment, my asthma was bothering me. I was using my inhaler 2-3 times a day and had been for over a month. At the beginning of the treatment I was wheezy and coughing. By the end of the treatment, I wasn’t coughing any more and my wheezing had eased. Now, nearly a month later, I still haven’t needed to use my inhaler.
