"Acupuncture and massage practitioner Donna Finando, who specializes in myofascial techniques and has studied pain management with field pioneer Janet Travell, M.D., presents "Trigger Point Self-Care Manual For Pain-Free Movement", a guide to self-care practices for promoting a healthier and happier life. Chapters examine the human body muscle by muscle, describing the different aches and pains that can result from stress or injury in each muscle, and teach readers about the "trigger points" in muscles that are particularly susceptible to damage and use pain as a warning sign to prevent even more serious injury. Exercises, stretches, and solid medical advice for taking good care of one's muscles fill this handy guide, written especially for lay readers and illustrated with black-and-white diagrams and red highlights. While the "Trigger Point Self-Care Manual" cannot replace a doctor's supervision, it is a valuable tool for personal health and maintenance and highly recommended, especially for people leading active lifestyles or those susceptible to muscular stiffness and soreness."--"The Midwest Book Review", Feb 2006
"Any who suffer from muscle pain will find her methods specific and useful, based on her acupuncture and massage background and studies with Janet Travell, MD, a pioneer in pain management."--Diane Donovan, "Bookwatch", April 2006
