Recently, she went to a workshop next to her home to try the massage service of “stretching muscles and keeping healthy”. Unexpectedly, when she got up the next day, she found that her calf “looked like a domestic violence injury.” There was swelling and pain, and I was so frightened that I rushed to see a doctor.
