Chaitow approved this final manuscript before his death on September 20, 2018. Fascial dysfunction is widely recognized as one of the key underlying causes of musculoskeletal pain leading to impaired and reduced mobility, so this blended discussion is useful to all manual therapists.

Available for $65 at nuvoEssence Ultrasonic Essential Oil Diffuser According to the American Sleep Association, roughly 50–70 million Americans suffer from sleep disorder. Insomnia can impact the quality of our lives, and although aromatherapy will not cure any sleep disorder, it can potentially help your clients fall asleep faster with calming oils used before bedtime or throughout the night. The nuvoEssence includes calming LED colors combined with 100 percent lavender oil for relaxation or 100 percent eucalyptus oil to stay energized during the day.
