by Clair Davies
Clair Davies was a piano tuner who hurt.
In an attempt to deal with debilitating job-related muscle pain, he studied massage therapy. There he learned of Travell & Simons revolutionary approach to muscular pain.
Davies wrote this "Self-Treatment Guide to Pain Relief" with emphasis on self-treatment in everyday language, thus making the information available to everyone. This book shows why you hurt and how to fix it.
