For customer service, related to buying e-books, please feel free to write or call — but do peek at my help page first. I also reply to most knowledgeable constructive criticism. Unfortunately, I get a hundred times more email than I can possibly respond to properly, and so I rarely reply to any other kind of message.


Got gripes? Before writing to tell me that I’m too negative about topics like fascia or acupuncture, please read this before complaining … and note that I am positive about treatments that actually make sense, and in particular I recommend trigger point therapy to a huge global audience.

Treatment? Referrals? Sorry, but I do not treat people myself, and I can almost never refer.Unfortunately, I am retired from clinical practice, I no longer treat or even consult for patients. I work exclusively as a health science journalist now. And I just cannot provide referrals either: finding and maintaining active referral relationships is super difficult even locally, never mind elsewhere in the world). I really have to know quite a lot about a professional before I'm prepared to endorse them in the first place… and then they invariably get too busy, retire, move…

Official announcements & pain science news, plus some public discussion.

Concise announcements, snarkier commentary, weird tangents.

RSS feed
Microblog posts “pushed” out to you by the miracle of RSS (more about this below).

See also: my personal blog is Writerly ( I’ve been posting there a few times a month for many years.

What is this “RSS” you speak of?

I publish new content on PainScience frequently. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could be notified when there’s something new to read? Without having to check the website? Without signing up for a mailing list? That’s the point of RSS.

This website has an “RSS feed.” An RSS feed is a special web page that summarizes content on the site and “feeds” it to you. That page can be read by your web browser, a RSS reading program (often called a “news reader”), or even your mail program. RSS readers will automatically let you know when there are updates, and show you only what’s new. Cool. (RSS stands for “Really Simple Syndication”, by the way — a distribution system.)

To learn more about RSS feeds and how to read them, here’s a tutorial for beginners Getting Started with RSS, or a fun little YouTube video (3:44).
