A recent study indicates that 1 in 5 people with chronic pain do not seek medical assistance, according to the February issue of Mayo Clinic Proceedings. The National Fibromyalgia Association estimates 3% to 6% of the U.S. population is afflicted with debilitating pain. Thousands of Americans suffer from muscle tension left untreated while self-care toolkits are readily available to alleviate trigger point pain.

Untreated pain has reached epidemic levels while a non-invasive, effective pain management solution is available. Physician administered trigger point therapy has been proven to reduce muscle pain; however, ongoing treatment can prove costly. The Pressure Positive Company has released affordable at-home, self-care toolkits to alleviate trigger point pain caused by muscle tension, Fibromyalgia and more.

The Pressure Positive Company has recently made available two at-home toolkits that capitalize on the benefits of trigger point therapy without the exorbitant cost of ongoing office visits. The Trigger Point Self-Care Toolkit includes the #1 best-selling book by Clair Davies, The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook, 2nd Edition, praised in the November 2005 issue of Dynamic Chiropractor for its concise instruction on daily management of trigger point pain. The Fibromyalgia Self-Care Toolkit contains the book Taking Charge of Fibromyalgia by Julie Kelly, MS, RN and Rosalie Devonshire, MSW, LCSW.

Both toolkits include self-care massage tool for reaching difficult points in the neck, back and shoulders. Kits also include tools that spare finger and thumb injuries during deep tissue massage. Both toolkits are only $57.95 each and are currently available online at:

We have hundreds of testimonials from people who have managed their pain and regained control of their lives. It's tremendously gratifying to be able to help so many people enjoy their lives again."
