This textbook is written clearly and easy for everyone to understand. It's well organized, clearly formatted and creatively designed with numerous pictures and bullets that kept me interested and engaged. Now I'm making changes in my lifestyle and sharing the energy with others.
This is a very useful course.

This course was amazing! The material was very clear and interesting, I couldn't have asked for anything more useful for my everyday work and home life. Can't wait to read more of David Bach's material!

The course was relevant to all areas of life: personal and professional (especially, as Massage Therapists are here to help improve and maintain health, and, certainly, greening the office, one's life, and knowing this information supports this purpose).

Chronic pain is similar to a perpetually stressed state of being. During a fight-or-flight response to stress, our sympathetic nervous system releases adrenalin and other hormones. This increases the heart rate, breath rate, blood pressure and redirects blood flow to muscles. Normally this process lasts until the perceived threat or danger is gone; however, if someone is experiencing a constantly stressed state of being, their recuperative abilities to return to homeostasis are exhausted and threatened. The following symptoms may emerge: reduced immunity, diarrhea, constipation, fatigue, headaches, sleep disturbance and poor concentration, shortness of breath, weight loss or gain, increased muscle tightness or tension, anxiety and depression.from Helping Clients Manage Chronic Pain by Sharon Burch (2008)
