Full Description

Bonnie Prudden's revolutionary breakthrough in pain relief involves trigger points -- tender areas where muscles have been damaged from falls, childhood ailments, poor posture, and the stresses of daily life. Requiring no special training or equipment, myotherapy is a natural, simple technique that can be performed in the home. Illustrated with charts, photographs, and diagrams, Bonnie Prudden's step-by-step method has been hailed by doctors and patients for its extraordinary 95 percent success rate.
