This powerful book by Esther Gokhale is
a SIMPLE, EFFICIENT, HIGHLY EFFECTIVE & INEXPENSIVE RESOURCE to RELIEVE PAIN and/or DEVELOP HEALTHY, GRACEFUL POSTURE
8 Steps to a Pain Free Back teaches the basics of how to move and to rest: how to sit, stand, lie, walk and lift.
Here’s what I like about this book:
I also like the way 8 Steps to a Pain Free Back teaches patterns based on first simply repositioning bones rather by first engaging muscles. The muscles follow naturally once the bones are in place. For me this is the key to what makes these patterns simple to learn.
Many people come across this book via the path of pain in their back, shoulder, hip, knee or elsewhere in their body. Many rave about how this book and/or the classes Esther teaches have helped them relieve their pain. Please go to Amazon and Esther’s website tolearn more, to see their extensive testimonies and to purchase this book.
I came via a different path. As an active, passionate and upbeat massage therapist and massage teacher and a dancer in my mid 50s, I came across 8 steps to a Pain Free Back in my search for better posture and carriage in order to help me dance with more strength and grace, and to help me more effectively give and teach massage.
I’ve experienced injuries over the years (shoulder, knee and toes) which resulted in steady, behind the scenes, low grade pain that contributed significantly to my somewhat guarded and stiff movement, and therefore limited my grace and strength. This low grade pain however was not my focus when I picked up Esther’s book. Rather, my desire to move with grace and strength were my goals. Studying this book has quickly and impressively moved me forward along this path and also reduced my pain.
Studying this book has helped me to breathe more easily and dance more gracefully. My massage sessions and classes are both more effective as I incorporate my learning from this fabulous book. I whole heartedly recommend this book to all my massage clients and students!
