are you a cancer survivor from colonrectal cancer too, with colostomy?
I have tried Bikram Yoga and Shiatsu massage therapy and it has helped me tremendously for my degenerative disc disease but you have to do bikram with modifications. look for a Shiatsu massage person, they heal people! I promise.
