    excellent

    A great text for all levels of practitioners. I highly recommend this text for it is clear and concise. Great scripts for those who need more ideas. I have found this book a good addition to my library. I have had to replace my earlier addition due to wear!

    Give it a try!

    An interesting idea and let's face it, you will have nothing to lose so give it a try! If you have back pain, I can highly recommend trying "The Multifidus Back Pain Solution."

    PRETTY COOL.

    It works only if you do the induction more than once a week until it's gone. But it's cool.
