In the Philippines, it is often said that the sea links the people. But something else also links the inhabitants of this archipelago- Hilot, an ancient art of healing through touch. Its practitioners, the manghihilot, use only their hands and coconut oil. Bernard Fontanille meets Angelita Calderon who earns her living as a seamstress and does not charge for Hilot treatments. Alongside Angelita, Bernard discovers a medical tradition based on pressure points and manual manipulation.
