Books by Whitney LoweDVDsTestimonialsHis contribution to the field of massage I consider absolutely invaluable. He researches the medical literature for any clinical findings that have relevance for us. He then translates that information into terms and concepts that we can understand without a medical background. He is absolutely brilliant in this.- D.
