Esther Gokhale, L.Ac., (Go-clay), pain expert and posture specialist, is the author of the Nautilus Gold Award-winning book, 8 Steps to a Pain-Free Back. Gokhale has been involved in integrative therapies all her life. As a young girl growing up in India, she helped her mother, a registered nurse, treat abandoned babies waiting to be adopted. This early interest in healing led her to study biochemistry at Harvard and Princeton and later, acupuncture at the San Francisco School of Oriental Medicine. She is the founder of the Esther Gokhale Wellness Center in Palo Alto, CA and travels internationally to spread her message that a pain-free life is possible through a return to primal posture. Her six-session course, Gokhale Method Foundations, is now taught around the world. Gokhale spends her time teaching, training teachers and creating products to help people achieve a pain-free life.
