Pressure Points For Anxiety – Japanese Shiatsu Self Massage
Japanese Shiatsu is a form of bodywork that consists of gentle finger pressure on certain points on the hands’ connective tissue. Over time, it is believed that Shiatsu self-massage could help the body start healing itself, allowing you to lower stress level.
