See reader questions & answers on this topic! - Help others by sharing your knowledge (Winkler) on 3 Dec 1992 (see the `faql.all' file in
the archive).  Andrew Winkler <> deserves a lot of credit for
the work he did.  Specifically, questions 0.2, 1.1, 2.1-2.5, 3.1-3.5
and 4.1 began as questions in the original FAQL.  Some of them have changed
very little from the originals (e.g., 3.3), some have undergone major
stylistic changes but are essentially the same (e.g., 2.5).  Question 1.1
is completely changed.
        The introductory portion of this article have been adapted from the
same section in the comp.lang.c FAQL (message-ID
<>, posted on 1 Jan 1994) which is
copyright 1988, 1990-1993 by Steve Summit.  Steve Summit also suggested
corrections to several typos in every part except 4.  Many of the additions
to question 2.2 (types of bodywork) have been adapted from a post by
MayaWay <> for the Maine Massage Guild (message-ID
<3kuukf$>).  Yonina Chernick, RMT and Keith Grant
provided extensive help in adapting the definition of craniosacral therapy
in that question.  Part of the answer to question 4.6 has been adapted from
postings by Richard Karasik (Message-ID
<36a84q$>), Terry Norman (Message-ID
<>) and the answer to a similar
question (#41) in the 13 Mar 1995 version of the Usenet FAQL (message-ID
<>, posted to news.announce.newusers and news.answers
on 28 Mar 1995 by Mark Moraes <>).
        The definition of fascia in question 2.6 is adapted from p.1045 of
volume II of _International Dictionary of Medicine and Biology: in three
volumes_, (c)1986 by John Wiley & Sons.  The Editor-in-Chief is Sidney
I. Landau and the ISBN is 0-471-01849.  The title of 1.3 d) (`"Please, sir,
I want some more."') is a quotation from chapter 2 of Charles Dickens's
novel _Oliver Twist_.  Margaret Ann LaChance <>
provided a guaranteed correct expansion for the ABMP acronym.
        The FAQL used to include definitions of Alexander, Feldenkreis and
Rolfing that were provided by Karen Muglach <>
from the book _Rolfing Movement Integration_ by Mary Bond (Healing Arts
Press, Rochester, Vermont, 1993, ISBN 0-89281-444-6).  The book has been
reprinted in late July 1996 with the title _BALANCING YOUR BODY: A
Self-Help Approach to Rolfing Movement_.  Those descriptions have been
removed at the request of the publisher.
        The FAQL has been posted by J. Blustein <> for many
years, but is now posted by a kind soul (or daemon) at another site.  
J. Blustein remains responsible for its content.  The following (in
alphabetical order by surname) are collaborating to edit and amend the
FAQL: Bill Arnett <>, Kjartan Clausen
