    Oh my! I am ecstatic to see this report. You are so kind to forward this to everyone! I do not mean to plug my work, but I teach BirthTouch, an easy-to-learn shiatsu and acupressure routine designed for the childbearing year, to women and their families to be used for stress reduction and bonding. I teach it to birth professionals (doulas midwives) to pass on to their clients, women and their families. I am in the process of updating my book with the research about touch and depression. Touch is so important to our well-being. I think I will go get a massage tomorrrow! thanks again for your useful info!
