Here I am at the Museum of Science of Industry in Chicago. We stumbled on these cadaver sculptures. This kind of thing usually makes me really squeamish. Once I got over the "eww" factor I couldn't stop looking at all of those muscles attachments. In this picture I am pointing at the iliopsoas muscle group. These tricky little muscles are often the root of a lot of back pain.
Aromatherapy All Massage sessions include a Biotone Creme Blend featuring custom essential oils. Currently available are a wonderful Relaxation Blend and a Muscle Magic Blend. Can be customized for those experiencing anxiety, depression, constipation, cold or cough, deep muscle pains, or osteoarthritis.
