Chronic pain is experienced by people of various ages. The course gave several causes of chronic pain, various techniques to use in addition to massage therapy (energy work, topical creams, essential oils) which may be beneficial, as well as benefits and precautions to consider. I appreciate being able to take courses leisurely, when I have time and can really concentrate.
