The International Shiatsu Congress was be held in London on the
16th, 17th and 18th of September 2016.
The theme of the congress is:

Practical workshops: the breath, treating the shoulders, shiatsu for cancer
patients, shiatsu for migraines, shiatsu for alzheimer's disease, the meridians
and child development, shiatsu for autistic children, etc.
Research in the field of shiatsu
Demonstrations for the public (see below)
On the last day there was be a one-hour shiatsu demonstration
open to the general public.
Their pulse rate and oxygen saturation levels were measured before and after
the shiatsu treatment.
We hope to publish a research paper on the effects of shiatsu on pulse rate
and oxygen saturation.
