AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'When tension overwhelms my muscles, I get a massage. I love massages, especially when the masseuse gets in there really deep. It doesn’t always relieve the aches and pains of a tight neck (too much stooping over editorials), but it’s an indulgence I return to frequently.' (Jessica L. Wilkinson, Editorial)
