people like a small treatment edge and some people like a bit larger
edge. This tool has a variable narrow (1/16") to a 3/16" contact edge.
If the small edge
at 45 degrees (3/16") is not giving enough feedback, move the tool
toward 90 degrees and
the contact edge gets smaller/sharper providing more feedback. If your
patient is experiencing too much discomfort at 90 degrees (1/16" edge)
move the tool closer to 40 degrees (3/16" edge) for a more
comfortable/tolerable treatment without switching tools. I have found
that the narrow edge works best for detection and the 3/16" edge works
best for deeper treatment.
Both edges are 45 degrees. One edge is 1/8" and the other is 3/16". When you hold the tool at 90 degrees the edge is 1/16". The edges are polished for a smooth transition and treatment.
"The Starr Tool I have discovered has delivered a superior outcome to chronic patients where all other prior treatments had failed. The instrument and overall technique allow for the facilitation of healing by breaking up old scar tissue and adhesions to generating fresh new blood circulation to the offending areas, thereby helping to correct and alleviate aberrant movement patterns from adaptive compensation over time.” - Casey Bearden, Nashville Spine & Disc

I recommend VideoLAN (Included on CD) If you want to use something small, fast and free of advertising, cost and all the other stuff that MS packs into it's player try it. www.videolan.org Unfortunately it will not play on most DVD players.

The tool actually looks better then the pictures. It is polished to a mirror finish and I am far from a professional photographer so the pictures I take are not the best.

Who the heck are you??? How do I know this is not a scam and I will get what I pay for????
I buy a lot of stuff on the net and sometimes I checkout a site before I pay them. The best way is to ask someone you know who has ordered from the site how their experience was.
First, Google the web site and/or product. See if their is any negative or positive feedback about the product, service or web site.
Use a credit card that offers protection for online purchases.
Call the phone number listed on the web site or send them an email and see how helpful they are and how long it takes them to reply.
