Here are a couple books I can recommend for anyone on a journey toward good health.

The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook, by Clair Davies, helps you locate and massage tender points on the body which refer pain to other locations and often mimic a variety of more complex health problems.  It’s easy to read, provides background on what “trigger points” are, and helps you accurately locate where to apply acupressure on the body to release the points.  There are concise sections on symptoms, causes, and treatments for all of the common (and many not-so-common) trigger points which have been documented through research on the body.  Just about anyone can use this workbook successfully to relieve pain, and improve range of motion and ease of movement.  It provides a simple, positive and pro-active way to enjoy better health.  Use these techniques on your family and friends as well as yourself.

Younger Next Year, (and Younger Next Year for Women), by Chris Crowley and Henry S. Lodge, M.D., is an engaging and practicable read.  The authors alternate chapters, one providing the science of aging and one illustrating the practicality with real life experiences.  It’s an uplifting and encouraging book, aimed at middle-aged men (or middle-aged women), which provides solid, manageable ways to live life and actively improve ways to go about and experience the world.  It’s common sense with research-behind-it writing.  It’s a reassuring and reinforcing read for people who are exercising and eating healthily, and not intimidating for those trying to begin to live their lives that way.
