This book has literally turned my life around.I have been struggling with shoulder pain,constant neck pain, and burning eyes for over a year.I had monthly massages,but inbetween I was still on painkillers, and constant doses of Ibuprofen.The burning in my eyes was the most unbearable sensation,I went to the opticians, and they couldn't find the source of the problem,but I couldn't find anything to relieve the discomfort.
My shoulder was progessively getting worse,most mornings I was waking up with a tight neck,which would gradually through the day give me a headache.
It was by a pure chance I came across this book, and the concept of self treatment intially appealed to me, as I was beginning to question how often I could realistically afford to keep having massages.
I read the book from start to finish, which is no easy feat, but it was so revealing to read all the syptoms I was experiencing were deferred pain from a point in my back.I got a small dog ball from the Pound Shop, and started to self massge.At first it was so tender I was nervous to keep going , but remembered what the book said that years of muscle spasm will not be rectified over night.
I have now been massaging my back for 3 weeks,usually between 3-4 times a day for short bursts as it states.I wake up with no neck tension, my shoulder is slowly easing off, and best of all,my eyes have stopped burning.I will continue the massaging as part of my daily routine, but I have also thought about my posture, and how I sit at the computor to prevent further damage.
This really is a fantastic book based on clear anatomical information, and real practical solutions.If you suffer from any pain that is related
to your back, this is book for you.I still cant believe after a year of contant pain and discomfort I am finally feeling comfortable, and strong but also in total control of my own body ( and drug free!)
