Repetitive Strain Injury/RSI - SCM?


MEASK wrote at 2013-02-25 17:07:36
I would like to ask why the SCM self help method offered by Julie is so expensive. I understand going to the Doctor is expensive too, but for an online self help method ( book ) costing over 220.00 is very high.

And if its because there are also CD's and such, why is that needed, you either buy the book or the CD and thats a very high price.

If one truly wanted to help someone, and were concerned, they could still make a a nice hefty profit by charging 30.00 or less, especially if the self help method really worked, and you would sell a lot MORE, given people could better afford 30.00, then 220.00, some might think it a get rich quick gimick, rather then a true helpful method to address serious symptoms.

It's been a long time since this was posted, but I wanted to clarify a mistake.  I do not charge $220 for my book, unfortunately someone purchased the book for $47 and is re-selling it for this ridiculous price.  I tried to have it taken off Amazon, but they wouldn't do it.  I can only hope that nobody would ever pay this price.

I can accept questions that relate to chronic or acute pain caused by muscle spasms and contractions. Repetitive Strain Injury is actually Cumulative Trauma to muscles. Releasing the spasm &/or contraction will relieve the strain that is felt at the insertion point on the bone. I am the co-developer of the unique safe-stretching program "Focused Flexibility Training," which combines easy instruction for self-treating spasms throughout your body with proven yoga stretches. I have recently authored two new books: "The 15 Minute Back Pain Solution," and "The Secret to Your Best Golf Game EVER!


Since 1989 I have been working with endurance athletes and individuals suffering from chronic pain conditions. I have authored seven self-treatment books and three self-treatment DVDs and I have developed the Julstro System for the treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome, Trigger Finger, and other Hand/Wrist pain. I am a national and international presenter at conventions, seminars, and workshops. Principle topics are "Work Shouldn't Hurt," and "The Pain Free Athlete." In 2005 and 2006 I was the massage therapist for ultracyclists competing in the Race Across America (RAAM) 3000+ mile race from San Diego, CA to Atlantic City, NJ. I've taught the Julstro techniques to physical therapists at the Cleveland Clinic, to massage therapists in areas around the USA, and I've taught Julstro self-treatment clinics to dancers at Juilliard School of Performing Arts (NYC),the sprinting team at NC State, and I am working closely with several Olympic-hopeful. We have successfully eliminated the repetitive strain injuries that could keep them out of the Olympic Games, and the best part is they know how to do the self-treatments so they can stay pain-free and flexible.

Privacy prevents me from filling in this section without prior consent from my clients. Life Experience: I have been specializing in the treatment of chronic pain and sports injuries since receiving my NY massage license in 1989. A personal bout with carpal tunnel syndrome was the catalyst to my developing a self-treatment that heals the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome quickly and without surgery. My work with endurance athletes was the inspiration to teach people how to self-treat so they could stop pains even during a race or heavy training day. Both of these situations ultimately became the products that are sold on my websites: and I currently treat people in my offices in Sarasota, FL, Cary, NC, or Pearl River, NY
