As a Board Certified Massage Therapist (BCTMB), I’ve worked with many clients experiencing back pain—especially during this time of year, when many of my regular clients share stories of finally finding the courage to clean out the garage or basement, help a friend move into a new place, or plan to move their children to the college dorm.
