About the Author

Now deceased, Clair Davies, NCTMB (Nationally Certified in Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork), specialized in trigger point massage for the treatment of pain. Mr. Davies’s interest in massage began when he successfully self-treated a frozen shoulder with trigger point massage. Inspired by the experience, he began an intensive private study of trigger points and referred pain. He subsequently retired from a thriving piano service business to attend the Utah College of Massage Therapy where he trained as a professional massage therapist. From his home base in Lexington, Kentucky, Mr. Davies traveled extensively with his daughter Amber, leading continuing education workshops for professionals on trigger point massage. Clair Davies died peacefully at home in 2006 of colon cancer.

Amber Davies, CMTPT, LMT, is a certified myofascial trigger point therapist and licensed massage therapist living in Louisville, Kentucky. Her interest in trigger point therapy began in the mid-1990s when she and her father, Clair, successfully ended her six-year long battle with chronic low back pain. As a clinician, educator, and author, Ms. Davies is dedicated to helping bring the treatment of myofascial pain to the mainstream of healthcare. Ms. Davies teaches continuing education for professional therapists and self-treatment to people in pain.

As a massage therapist I recommend this book to any client that can use it.  An interested 12 year old can understand this book.  I use and share the info in this book constantly.  No expensive tools needed.  His references are two doctors that wrote for  doctor- to- doctor (read those also) .  Mr Davies translated to everyday language for the lay person.
