  1. Hi. This is Tasso Spanos who studied with your mother many times while
    preparing to become a myofascial triggerpoint therapist. In l995, I founded the
    Academy for Myofascial Triggerpoint Therapy in Pittsburgh. The school has
    graduated 200 students and is now independent. It is because of Dr. Travell that
    the school was founded and that continues her ideas as the basis of its curriculum.
    We have sold many of your mother’s textbooks and I am on my fifth copy. Dr.
    Simons became a friend, mentor and patient in his later years and also did
    presentations in his Emory University,DeKalb, setting. If you go on my you tube
    site, you wil find many references to Dr. Travell, talking and explaining your mother’s
    ideas. Thank you for this wonderful presentation and thank you for your mother. God bless and keep you.
    Tasso and (The Rev.) Becky spanos
