It also addresses specific problems like back spasms, tendinitis, arthritis, chronic headaches, anxiety and more. It increases body awareness and recognizes human touch as an indispensable form of healing. Consequently, massage therapy can be a wonderful ally in attaining a vibrant, healthy lifestyle.
