This illustrated manual continues to be popular with chiropractors, physical therapists and massage therapists worldwide.

She has also performed on The Keenan Ivory Wayans Show and the Howard Stern Show. Gino is swiftly becoming the voice of power and passion, performing with the Agape International Choir as one of the lead singers at The Ford Amphitheater, in front of a fully-packed audience.
Gino?s new CD, Check the Mirror, is inspired by love and the musical sound of SpiritFunknMetalBlues. Gino?s mission is to Lift & Shift the World through song and word, in collaboration with Lanny Penny, a songwriter/composer and bass player, and Rhyss Moody of MTO Studios, the sound engineer with the best ears. Together they have come together to create Check the Mirror.
The president of SUM, Patrick Harbula, says that the organization encourages people from all religious and philosophical backgrounds to link together in unified spiritual service through the practice of prayer and meditation. Harbula says, ?Imagine all the religions of the world praying together for world healing and harmony. We are at a crucial time in our planetary history when it is not only possible but essential to go beyond the belief systems that separate various spiritual paths to the heart of spiritual service where we find unity.?
