I’m grateful for massages, but mainly the really firm kind. Javanese, or TCM, or reflexology… those. The ones that treat you like a lump of dough that needs kneading. I have that ape thing that all desk job workers have going, the tense shoulders and lower back. Apart from the obvious relief it brings, research has shown that massage boosts immunity, circulation, and cell growth.
