Looking for another way to feel better in between deep-tissue sessions?

Try out Clare Davies’s Trigger Point Therapy Workbook.  It’s meant for the layperson (vs. the massage therapist), so it offers easy-to-follow instructions on extinguishing hot spots and on matching pain patterns to source points.

Here are some (inexpensive) tools you may find useful in turning off trigger points: a tennis ball, a racketball, and a superbounce ball.

For you local Portlanders, the Multnomah County library has multiple copies.  Or check out Powell’s or Amazon.
