Stress Massage for the back
How many treatments would be required to break down painful nodules on the back. Consider that each treatment lasts one hour. I am working in a remote area where we have no access to Chiropractors.

A massage therapist could assist - but much depends upon your physical state and how tensed up you are. Physiotherapists could also help - but I can not without examination or detailed case history give you an indication of "how many" treatments you require.
