I went to get a massage in San Francisco from this woman who first told me about the book. Fortunately they sold it there and I purchased it. I used that book religiously before I found Brain Highways. (You can find it on Amazon.com.) It helped so much to deal with the chronic pain issue when I could not get the pain to go away. I also found a trigger point massage therapist who is amazing! Again he is local to the Orlando area. He works at Harris Chiropractic in Oviedo, Florida, and his name is Sean. If you live around here, I recommend him highly. He's excellent at working out trigger points, especially in the neck, back, and shoulders. My scalenes and SCM muscles used to be so tight and so very painful, and he worked them right out for me. I used to have to keep going back because the muscles do tense back up unless you can find the source of the tension.
That is why Brain Highways (BH) is so amazing. BH helped me get to the SOURCE of my pain... a disorganized brain. The main place I'm still having soreness is in my head, of all places, but outside of that, the rest of my tight muscles have disappeared. I cannot stress to you how amazing this has been. I was in chronic pain for at least 10 years, probably longer, and now I'm living a fairly pain-free existence, and I believe it is because BH found the source of my issues, which is the disorganized brain. And quite stunningly, the patterned movements organize the brain. But if you have chronic pain and aren't quite ready to jump into BH, try acupuncture, cupping, and trigger point therapy because they will help manage the symptoms until you can get to the source. I'm not saying everyone with chronic pain has a disorganized brain, but it is a possibility. You can go to BrainHighways.com and take a free adult assessment to see if you might have a disorganized brain. It will give you a good sense of whether that might be your issue.
