They are also the places where people develop the majority of their chronic aches and pains due to long hours of sitting or standing and many times, staring at a computer.

More details: One of the very first massages I ever did with my chair was a fundraiser for the Four Diamonds Fund. My neighbor's child had recently been diagnosed with a stage 4 germ cell tumor and the family had gotten involved with the 4 Diamonds Fund and were organizing a fundraiser. I brought my chair just to help them out by having something for people to do, then people started handing me tips to go towards the fundraiser, so it all worked out really well for everyone involved. (My neighbor's child is today totally cancer-free, BTW!)
