good morning! Got my book order from Amazon yesterday, including Clair Davies book on trigger point therapy. It's a little overwhelming, there's so much information there! I did a little 'mashing' last night, actually stayed up later than I shoulda, had to make myself put the book down and go to sleep! (I like that term you use, mashing. Very appropriate.) I think I feel a little better this morning, hard to tell, just that my low back is not quite so sore. With the PMS, it's hard to tell. I plan to dive back into the book when I get home tonight from work, and try to focus on just a few areas. Did you get the Thera-Cane he talks about? Or just tennis balls? This is an awsome book! I can tell it's going to get a lot of use in my house! Thank you again for the reference!!! Peace, Beth.
