The project was begun in the early 2000’s by Tomas Nellison. After giving a series of shiatsu treatments to a Vienna heart surgeon he was invited to initiate a project within the hospital.
In 2009, at the time of filming, the study was based on 30,000 documented treatments in five specialist hospitals in Vienna.
The film features interviews with doctors and other health professionals within five specialist hospitals in the vicinity of Vienna.
Now, in 2021 with 100,000 documented treatments, the project continues and many new therapists have been trained.
