Ten Open Access Case Reports for Massage Therapists

If you are a massage therapist who is interested in reading research papers, PubMed is a great resource but most massage therapists do not have academic access to journals. 

This is not the only barriers to entry, sorting through the data is like drinking from a fire-hose, if you search Massage therapy on PubMed you will get nearly 14,000 returns. So, if you don't feel like sorting through all those listings I have put together a curated selection of 10 open access case reports.
