    Ugh So Tense

    Honestly I always have back pain. I don't know why though! I sit and stand straight and pick things up properly. I don't think I have fallen or done anything along those lines. But I always get told I have amazing hands and people always want me to rub their backs or arms. Its...

    Actually, Not Impossible

    I cannot recall the type of therapy this involves, but for certain types of back pain, you can use a small ball like a tennis ball (may be too hard) or a racket ball to get rid of pain. I remember a therapist that used her elbows on tender spots to fatigue the knots. She told me...

    Would Be Nice

    Just like how I wish I could give myself a haircut, or check myself for ticks... it would be SOOOOOO nice to give myself a back massage. I wish my masseuse knew exactly how I want to be healed!!

    I don't really, but if I do it kind of messes up my system. All the way from not being able to pee right and soreness of my genitalia, to back pain and inability to think.
