More About the Author

If you've lost track of me, I'm still here. After devoting my life to private practice and working with many athletes around the world, I expanded my horizons. I spent a considerable amount of time researching plants to find the most therapeutic phytonutrients. This culminated with the development of a number of nutritional products unique to the industry. I continued to lecture and write (I'll list some of my books below). I recently developed a unique form of neuromuscular biofeedback (Manual Biofeedback)and incorporated neurofeedback, spend time with some rock bands as their doctor, and other exciting ventures.

In 2004 I further expanded my world, plunging nearly full time into a singer-songwriter career. Yes, this seems like a radical change, but it's what my mind has always wanted but never made it clear enough. I went to LA to work with producer Rick Rubin and have written about 200 songs and recorded five demo albums, and my first CD is due out December 2006.

With all these different directions, I have not abandoned my own personal health and fitness philosophies and practices I began teaching many years ago.

Some of my other books include:
Fix Your Feet (Lyons Press)

In Fitness and In Health (The No Nonsense Guide)(4th edition, Barmore)

Complementary Sports Medicine (a textbook) (Human Kinetics)

Eating for Endurance (2nd edition, Barmore)

Training for Endurance (Barmore)

Nutrition for Children with Brain Dysfunction (with Coralee

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
There are very few (easily accessible) books that I'm aware of that contain such a large number of treatment modalities under one cover. Sections I've found most useful as an adjunct to my AK practice: Non-force Cranial-Sacral therapy, Non-force spinal manipulation, and Acupressure pain reduction. This is in addition to the large and useful sections on muscle testing and AK treatments. The fact that so many modalities are contained in this one source makes it a treasured resource for me.

The book is not quite 'self-contained'-- it's best if the reader has some familiarity with the execution and use of muscle testing that's covered more thoroughly in other sources such as "Applied Kinesiology" (Frost).

The text language assumes the reader has a reasonable command of anatomical and medical terminology, but remains quite accessible anyway. It's clear that the text is aimed at a fairly broad audience.
