My name is Dr.
Laura Perry. I am a chiropractor in Houston, Texas.
I write this today in an effort to reach people who
have found themselves in a similar situation to
mine. What I have to say will only take a few
minutes of your time, and I think that you will
benefit from my message, so here it goes.
Is Not Going to Make You
let me begin, by saying that what I have to offer
you is not going to make you rich. If you feel that
the only thing that can make you happier is making
more money, then I'm not sure that you will find
much value in what I have to offer you. Sure, if
you master the clinical skills that I detail in my
program, you will develop a strong client/patient
base, and you probably will enjoy a more lucrative
practice over time. But I urge you to put the idea
of making money aside for now, and focus on a more
When I began
Chiropractic college, I had dreams of being wealthy
someday, but I also had the desire to help people.
I found that many of my classmates had this same
desire, and many left well-paying jobs to start a
career in healthcare for this very reason. I'm sure
that when you chose a career in healthcare, you
also were motivated by a desire to be of service,
by a desire to help people.
Reality of Healthcare.
if your like me and most of the healthcare
professionals that I know, the desire to help
people took a backseat to day-to-day reality
somewhere along your path. The reality of the
healthcare business is just that, it is a business.
Or more specifically, it is in the business of
making money, and not necessarily focused on
When I got out
of Chiropractic college, I was simply not prepared
to face the reality of my career path. I bounced
from job to job, trying to make enough money to pay
my student loans, let alone live on. Every job had
one common goal, to make money for the boss. I
quickly found that if I was going to keep my job, I
had to forget about helping people.
What is worse,
I found out that my patients were more interested
in making money themselves, and that they really
didn't care if I could help them. They just wanted
a large workers compensation, or lawsuit
settlement. The whole operation was just "business
as usual". The doctors set ridiculous treatment
plans, and the staff went and picked up the
patients everyday, provided their "therapy" and
took them back home. I found myself asking "Is this
what I went through seven years of college for?.
Not to mention my student loans." I was
disillusioned, heart-broken, and disgusted.
a New Path.
years of waking up and dreading my life, I decided
that I needed to make a change if I was going to
stay in the healthcare field. I knew that there
were patients out there that needed help, and I
rededicated myself to learning how to help them. My
goal on this new path was simple, I wanted to go to
bed each night knowing that I had made a difference
in somebody's life, that I had made their life
A friend of
mine had told me about the work of
Dr. Janet Travell M.D.
Dr. David Simons M.D..
They had written two medical textbooks
Myofascial Pain and Dysfunction: The Trigger Point
And even though the material in these textbooks
wasn't exactly designed for Chiropractors or other
hands-on therapies, I recognized the immense value
of their research, and knew I had to make use of it
Power of Science.
This wasn't my
first foray into alternative healthcare methods.
During and after college, I explored and learned
many systems of bodywork and manual therapies. I
would get excited about a new method, only to be
let down later by inconsistent results. The
techniques always seemed to work in class, but more
often than not, they failed to work with my
taking just a brief look at the work of Drs.
Travell and Simons, I knew their approach was a
whole different story. The difference was the
scientific methods that they employed in doing
their research and developing their therapies. At
every step of the way, they took measures to avoid
fooling themselves with their own human nature. It
was evident that they really put some work into
this, a lifetime of work. The result was a unique
and highly effective approach to understanding and
relieving physical pain, an approach that I knew
would give consistent clinical results. I was sold.
Now I just had to figure a way to adapt their work
to suit my scope of practice.
I began adapting and
utilizing the work of Drs. Travell and Simons in my
personal practice in 2001. The results were very
encouraging. No longer did it take 8-10 treatments
to get my patients out of pain. In acute cases, my
patients were responding in one or two treatments.
In chronic pain situations, the patients responded
in three to six treatments. I knew I could do
better, so I continued to study and refine my
became a learning experience for me. I made an
effort to really understand each patient's pain.
And then it started to happen. I was making a
difference in their lives. Even though my methods
were often uncomfortable for the patient, I found
nearly all of them left my office with a smile on
their face. I had given them hope. I had given them
more control of their life. They were no longer
slaves to the physical pain in their
What a revelation!
After all these years, I was finally living the
dream that I had envisioned when I began
Chiropractic college. I was truly helping people.
And I found that it changed everything in my life.
I went to bed every night knowing that I had made a
difference in someone's life. And I awoke each
morning with a smile on my face. I feel blessed to
have this opportunity and to live this life.
So it is this
opportunity that I want to share with you. I want
you to know the satisfaction that comes with truly
helping someone to live a better life. I want to
offer you the skills to understand someone in a
manner that no one ever has before. I want to offer
you a new path. Granted, it will take a lot of work
from you. I cannot walk your path for you, but I
can walk it with you.
60-hour Clinical Trigger Point Therapy
2003, as word spread about my clinical success,
there was a growing demand for me to share my
experience with fellow healthcare practioners. In
response to this demand, my husband and I spent
over two years developing a 60-hour Clinical
Trigger Point Therapy Program based directly on the
clinical protocols that I employ in my daily
practice. The program was an instant success, and
is now considered by many to be the most
comprehensive and effective Trigger Point Therapy
education in the country. I have found that I learn
as much from teaching as I do from my daily
practice and studies. Teaching is truly a mutually
beneficial experience. The
I must say that
I no longer believe in coincidences. I believe that
if my message has found its way to you, then you
probably share the same desire that I do, the
desire to genuinely help people. Not many people
get the opportunity to make a living doing
something that they love. I would like to make
available to you the same opportunity that I was
fortunate enough to get. To get started, I would

Thank you for your
time and interest. I hope to share my love of
Trigger Point Therapy with you soon.
