ICCMR conference presentation 2019
In May of this year I had the fortune to attend and present at the International Congress on Complementary Medicine Research in Brisbane. It was an inspiring experience and opportunity to witness an incredibly diverse array of research happening in the field of CM. I was honored to attend as a representative of STAA (Shiatsu Therapy Association of Australia) who have supported my research journey thus far.
