For customer service, related to buying e-books, please feel free to write or call — but please do check my help page first. I also reply to most knowledgeable constructive criticism.

I’m sorry, but I cannot reply to any other kind of message. I get far more email than I can answer. For obvious ethical and legal reasons, I cannot consult or comment on specific pain and injury cases, and I cannot recommend a health care professional in your area (but I do have tips on finding a good one).

Got gripes? You’re not alone! Before writing to tell me that I’m too negative about subjects like fascia or acupuncture, please read this before complaining … and bear in mind that I am quite positive about treatments that actually make sense, and in particular I enthusiastically recommend trigger point therapy to a global audience.

This website has an “RSS feed.” An RSS feed is a special web page that summarizes content on the site and “feeds” it to you. Your web browser, a RSS reading program (often called a “news reader”), or even your mail program can read that page and will automatically let you know when it has been updated, and show you only what’s new. Yay! (RSS stands for “Really Simple Syndication”, by the way — a distribution system.)

To learn more about RSS feeds and how to read them, here’s a tutorial for beginners Getting Started with RSS, or a fun little YouTube video (3:44).
