The Injury and Pain Relief Clinic

I run across various resources which I find helpful, or think others will find helpful, and so this is where I will share them... and these resources are not just related to massage or self-care.  If you have any helpful resources to share, please let me know.

Self-care and body related resources

Kettlebells - Strength training for real strength without bulk, and only a few minutes through your week.  Click here for more information and further resources on kettlebells.

The Pilates Body by Brooke Siler - A great book on Pilates which not only gives great pictures, demonstrations, and mental images... but also makes it easy to slowly build up your routine by outlining beginner, intermediate, and advanced moves in the full sequence.  As an added bonus, none of the core work requires more than a clear piece of floor to work on.  Click here for the book on Amazon.com.

Light on Yoga by B. K. S. Iyengar - The masterwork of Mr. Iyengar which has yet to be touched by any other yoga author.  This covers the basic philosophy, as well as giving step by step instructions for each yoga pose.  Simply the best yoga book I've ever read.  And if you are really enthused by your reading, there is a two to three year weekly program outlined toward the back of the book.  Click here for the book on Amazon.com.

Trigger Point Therapy Workbook by Claire Davies - A good self-care book about trigger points.  In general, only treating trigger points ends up being a band-aid approach to working out body problems, and generally is not truly comprehensive.  This is still a good reference though, and handy to help you knock down specific painful areas (such as the leg pain that might wake you at night... allowing you to get back to sleep).  If your problem persists, seek out a qualified therapist to assist you in working out the source of the problem.  Click here for the book on Amazon.com.

Corn Huskers Lotion - Restore your cracked skin quickly with this handy lotion.  I wash my hands after each session, and they can get pretty dry and cracked (especially during winter).  This lotion truly eliminates the cracked hands for me.  Good stuff, and inexpensive.  You can find it at your local grocery or pharmacy.  Click here for the product on Amazon.com.

Home, Office, Etc.

Chaos to Serenity - Professional organizing for the home and office.  Monica Miller is a whiz with getting your clutter cleaned up.  A real professional with over 12 years experience.  Give her a call when you need some help.  (206) 818-4404

Windows PC Software

AVG anti-virus software - Their free edition (for personal use) is great.  It gets regular updates, and works well.  What more could you want?  Click here for the website where you can download it.

Zone Alarm software firewall -This is free software that gives you more control over what programs communicate to and from your computer.  This is a replacement to the default Windows firewall.  Click here for the website where you can download it.

Spybot (Search and Destroy) - This free software scans your computer for trojan-horse programs, worms, and other evil programs that try and hijack your computer.  Click here for the website where you can download it.

Firefox web browser - The best web browser out there (free, and available for Windows, Mac, and Linux)... more secure, more options, and faster updates.  This is a replacement to Windows Explorer or Safari.  Click here for the website where you can download it.  In addition, there are many great add ons that make this more useful, and more safe than any other web browser out there.
