New

Throughout my career as an anatomy teacher at the university, my students have asked me several times about muscles that I did not know existed.

The human body is unique – it consists of a great many diverse structures. However, if this diversity goes beyond the scope of classical textbooks on anatomy, many experts refuse to recognize it.

Some believe that it came from the Arabic “mass” or “masch” – “gently press, touch,” others – from the Greek “masso” – “squeeze hands”, and others – from the Latin “massa” – “stick to fingers”. But whatever the origin of the word, the essence of the massage remains the same. Continue reading
