Do you remember seeing a diagram of bones in the human body? It is often surprising just how prominent the backbone looks in these diagrams. The spine is usually the star of the show, connecting the other bones, supporting the body, making movement possible--but for all the attention we give to the backbone on diagrams, how much do we think about our backs in everyday life? Maybe we have chairs designed for back health, or possibly spend a few minutes contemplating how to reach that one inaccessible itch, but that's usually the summit of our interest.

Most of us can say that we're on all-too-friendly terms with that unpleasant "test anxiety." Throughout our lives, tests have always been present, if, perhaps, in different masks—our school years were punctuated with finals anxiety, our 16th birthdays characterized by driving test jitters, and the rest of our lives seem to be defined by medical exam nerves. Unfortunately, unlike finals and driving tests, we can't study for a medical exam to feel more prepared.

When one stops to consider all of the amazing things that we humans have accomplished since the beginning of our time on Earth, it is clear that some of the most innovative and significant advances have taken place in the field of medicine. Naturally, medicine has been a long-time focus: for as long as we've had pain, injuries, and illnesses, we have been searching for cures. When we think about healing, our minds too often go to prescriptions and highly-advanced machines--but the truth is, the study of medicine encompasses a much wider variety of fields.

The combination of the human body and mind is, in many ways, one of the world's most amazing partnerships. Most of our vital body functions are performed completely without our conscious effort. The mind knows precisely how to speak to the body so that the desired actions take place. Essentially, every aspect of our lives is controlled by the partnership between body and mind--and massage therapists have found innovative ways to use this partnership to ease depression and anxiety through the power of massages.

There are few things more fascinating than the coming-of-age rituals of ancient civilizations. While today's most common coming-of-age ritual may not be legendary or worthy of age-old myths, it is an undeniably important part of modern life: getting a driver's license has been a milestone in the lives of generations of teenagers and has become a mark of maturity and responsibility in our culture. Few things could ever match the excitement of slipping behind the wheel for the first time as a licensed driver.

Driving is a huge responsibility. As soon as you slip behind the wheel of a car, you are taking control of a massive metal machine capable of inflicting serious damage if used improperly. From the very first moment your foot touches the gas pedal, you are taking into your hands not only your own life, but also the lives of everyone on the roads, sidewalks, and crosswalks. It is the Department of Transportation's responsibility to ensure that everyone who carries a driver's license can protect others as well as themselves from the destruction that can be caused by a motor vehicle.

Stress is a complicated ailment. It has come up almost daily in our lives since we were young, a basic part of school and play and work and life itself. It has the amazing power to change the body's reactions to almost everything. They'll often tell us that stress can be a healthy part of what we're doing, as long as we know how to deal with it properly--and then they'll list off a lot of usually-unhelpful ways to handle stress, like they have never experienced it themselves, and we're left stressed out and confused.

Without our minds, what would we be? The mind is the control center of the body, a crucial part in everything we do--and because of this, mental health is extremely important. However, unlike an earache or a virus, mental health can't be easily treated with a quick trip to the doctor and a convenient prescription. It takes different kinds of medicine to work with the mind, and massages are just one of the revolutionary ways that the medical world is tackling mental health issues.
