clear, conscise and helpfull,
This review is from: Trigger Point Self-Care Manual: For Pain-Free Movement (Paperback)
Received my book this morning and must say that I am very impressed. I am a holistic therapist and am always looking for 'safe' ways to help other people and myself.
The layout of the book is very clear. A quick reference point: Good diagrams to indicate painful areas and the correcting muscles and page numbers at the end of the book. I also have the Trigger point therapy work book by Claire Davies. This book by Donna Finando is not only clearer BUT gives clear instruction (with diagrams) on how to locate the muscles and then how to stretch the muscles. This is very important in my view, if the muscle has been in spasm for a period, it needs to be stretched. Just working on the trigger points is not enough.
I do 'Spring Forest Qigong' regularly to keep myself in good shape because I am a back pain sufferer myself. I could very quickly identify which muscles to work on and what exercise to use. I can already feel the benefit.If you wanted just one book on Trgger Point Therapy, then you should get this one
