thanks for the input. I was just thinking this morning that I could use some moral support with this trigger point stuff. I've had some success, it's easy to find the points that really hurt! and it does help ease some of the pain. I'm concentrating on lower and middle back, and the carpal tunnel problems. Haven't had much time for study, though, as work has been way too busy, and I've been exhausted by the time I get home. I really like that it is non-drug, and non-doctor, and it gives ME control. That helps all by itself! I need to spend some time with the book and really study. Maybe this weekend, as we don't have any plans, for once! I can use a quiet weekend at home, it'll be nice. It's good to know that you are feeling better! Peace, Beth.
