Seven popular articles in audio, about stretching, posture, Epsom salts, structuralism, and trigger points

Paul Ingraham • 1m read

These seven articles are all available in audio format as a free bonus for all e-boxed set customers, or on request for blind visitors (email me). Sorry, but the files cannot be downloaded from this page.

There’s a theme! Five of them are about a popular but all-too questionable idea: the value of stretching, the importance of posture, the power of Epsom salts, the nature of “trigger points,” and the clinical relevance of biomechanical factors (the deepest one, intended mostly for professionals, but not entirely). Each article is a reader favourite or a personal pick. It’s basically the Greatest Hits from the last decade of constantly fine-tuning my writing about controversial and complex subject matter.

The articles are all read by me, professionally produced (by Vancouver film-maker and creative-polymath Kennedy Goodkey), and embellished with some original music (by Vancouver composer Phil Mahoney). I used to be a theatre and radio guy, so these recordings were a hoot for me to make, and they don’t suck. I will probably do more, and some will be updated (especially the trigger point doubts project, which is on-going and has already been updated once).

I created these to be a nice perk for all e-boxed set customers, so to get them you have to purchase a boxed set.

Paying in your own (non-USD) currency is always cheaper! My prices are set slightly lower than current exchange rates, but most cards charge extra for conversion.

Example: as a Canadian, if I pay $19.95 USD, my credit card converts it at a high rate and charges me $26.58 CAD. But if I select Canadian dollars here, I pay only $24.95 CAD.

Why so different? If you pay in United States dollars (USD), your credit card will convert the USD price to your card’s native currency, but the card companies often charge too much for conversion — it’s a way for them to make a little extra money, of course. So I offer my customers prices converted at slightly better than the current rate.

Pay 50% less per book. Steeply discounted bundle of all 10 tutorials, ideal for professionals and keen patients. Free future editions forever. Purchased individually, the set would cost $200, but the set is only $100 — a savings of $100. Includes several bonus audio downloads. See the boxed set page for more information.

Two Audio Books Too

I have audio versions of two of my books as well: plantar fasciitis and IT band syndrome. Those are available to anyone who purchases those individual tutorials (or the boxed set, of course).
