I attended a myofascial pain workshop and learned the techniques from this book.

I had been expecting to find a previous user's notes scrawled in the margins, but it looked like I was the first one to actually open the book!

This book may possibly be one of the largest milestones in pain elimination ever written.

This book may possibly be one of the largest milestones in pain elimination ever written. I often refer to it (or them) as the "bibles" because the buck stops here when it comes to pain! We are not talking about pain management here, we are talking about PAIN ELIMINATION! These books cover it all. From referred pain patterns, to differential diagnosis, to nutritional inadequacies, to systemic factors such as thyroid dysfunction, to perpetuating factors (what is causing your pain to continue after injury, trauma, etc.). To experience the definitive answer on muscular pain throw these two books in your shopping cart, and if you think they may be expensive, remember: "The sour taste of poor quality oulasts the sweet taste of a cheap price!" ...

I attended a myofascial pain workshop and learned the techniques from this book. I use them weekly and they really work. The books are exceptional and go into great deal. A super reference for the therapist who does hands on pain relief treatments. Would also be good for the advanced level massage therapist. This is the bible for neck and upper extremity pain relief.

Bookseller was great....arrived very quickly

The book is almost a requirement for any serious healer or body worker. My copy was actually a signed edition. Not bad since the cost was less than $30.00 including shipping.

This is the best book you will read about myosofacial pain, trigger point therapy, and the right treatment for each muscle system.

It should be required reading in every College for the training of physical therapists as well as in medical schools.

When all is lost and you are in pain with no easy answers, get down on your knees and pray that you can find Dr. Janet Travel, MD.
