physical rehabilitation programs, massage therapy has also proven beneficial for many
chronic conditions, including low back pain, arthritis, bursitis, fatigue, high
blood pressure, diabetes, immunity suppression, infertility, smoking cessation,
depression, and more.

with other massage techniques.
