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.

I’m sorry, but I cannot reply to any other kind of message! I get a hundred times more email than I can answer. I can’t consult or comment on specific pain and injury cases, and I can’t recommend a health care professional in your area (but I do have tips on finding a good one).

Got gripes? You’re not alone! Before writing to tell me that I’m too negative about subjects like fascia or acupuncture, please read this before complaining … and bear in mind that I am quite positive about treatments that actually make sense, and in particular I recommend trigger point therapy to a huge global audience.

Service Notice I moved my office across town at the end of October, and then moved the website from to — the month o’ two moves. It’s chaotic! Customer service for anything about buying books will continue as normal, but I’m going to be really slow with all other kinds of messages through to the beginning of 2015. Thanks for your patience.

What is this “RSS” you speak of? An RSS primer

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? RSS will let you do that!

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. Your web browser, a RSS reading program (often called a “news reader”), or even your mail program can read that page and will automatically let you know when it has been updated, and show you only what’s new. Yay! (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).

My personal blog is Writerly ( I’ve been posting there a few times a month for many years.
