Editorial Reviews

The Health In Your Hands DVD is a careful selection of exercises that you can do to reverse scoliosis in the comfort of your own home.

Dr. Kevin Lau, D.C., acclaimed author of "Your Plan for Natural Scoliosis Prevention and Treatment" Health in Your Hands, release of his highly-anticipated Scoliosis Prevention and Correction Exercise DVD. The carefully designed exercise program is Dr. Lau's latest addition to his book's comprehensive program for scoliosis patients worldwide to live a scoliosis-free life.

"When scoliosis sufferers take their health into their own hands by implementing this exercise program, they then become instrumental in reversing the progression of their scoliosis, thus improving their quality of life." said the award-winning Dr. Lau.

Broken down into three easy-to-digest sections, the DVD will take you through the various steps in order to start rebuilding and re-balancing your spine. The comprehensive sections cover everything from Body Balancing Stretches to Building Your Core and a number of different Body Alignment Exercises that have all been carefully designed and selected by Dr Kevin Lau.

Presented in a unique and accessible way, the DVD covers all areas of non-surgical intervention in the treatment of scoliosis in order to cure you permanently. The exercises in the DVD are tried and tested by qualified personal trainers, explained in the informative and insightful voice over of Dr Kevin Lau, who guides you to a straighter spine.

For anyone who suffers scoliosis, the main advantages of the DVD are:


  • It gives a 60-minute concise expansion of Dr Lau's book by the same name, Health In Your Hands: Your Plan for Natural Scoliosis Prevention and Treatment.

  • The Body Balancing section in the DVD explains in detail the correct stretching techniques for scoliosis sufferers to relieve stiffness.

  • The Building Your Core section focuses on strengthening the muscles that give stability to your spine.

  • Body Alignment Exercises will improve the overall alignment of your spine.

  • All the exercises that feature in the DVD are suitable for pre and post-operative rehabilitation for scoliosis conditions.

  • Safe even for those in pain.

  • All exercises covered in the Health In Your Hands DVD can be practiced at home, and with no special equipment required.


Caveat Emptor: The DVD is only intended to demonstrate the exercises shown in the book. It should by no means be regarded as a substitute for the core information provided in the Health In Your Hands: Your Plan for Natural Scoliosis Prevention and Treatment by Dr Kevin Lau.

5.0 out of 5 stars Boring, redundant and effective April 2, 2012
Format:DVD
So after a few years of working out and doing yoga and pilates religiously, my circumstances changed and I couldn't go to the gym anymore. You'd be surprised to know how quickly your hard won fitness goes spiraling down the toilet once you stop exercising.

Anyhow, I'm one of those lucky apple-shaped chicks with a long torso, big chest, and no butt to serve as a counterbalance. Thus, I'm not really just top heavy, I'm "front" heavy which leaves my poor spine and scoliosis with the daunting task of keeping me upright. Anyway, the last couple months have been agony. I've been having trouble sleeping, getting out of bed and even standing up. I'm only 30 for god sakes, so I decided I was going on a crusade to put an end to this pain. Ordering this DVD seemed like a good start.

If you are looking for a gentle, therapeutic series of exercises to address your scoliosis, considering purchasing this DVD.

The DVD gives you a choice of three types of exercises from stretching, body alignment and core strengthening which are between 25 and 30 mins long. One focuses on the low back/sacrum, one focuses on the hips, and the last is a combination and supposed to be a bit more difficult. I've done all three, and they are great, but please be aware that they are truly boring and redundant. Strength training is all about reps, and that is what you're doing here. The sequence of the exercises is well thought out - once you become accustomed to moving a certain way, you'll switch to an exercise that does just the opposite. It works, though. Afterwards I really did notice a difference in my posture, and after a week my back pain has decreased.

In all honesty I bought this DVD because of it's sterling reviews below. However, I am greatly disappointed and would not recommend this DVD to those who want a thorough as well as relaxing experience trying to heal their body of/ or prevent scoliosis.

I thought this would be a "step by step" DVD without the need for equipment and or assistance. There are multiple exercises that require an exercise ball or someone to help you complete the exercise and or stretch.

The DVD formatting also lacks the ability to leave the current exercise and return to the main menu. I know how to operate a DVD player and remote. This is clearly an internal issue as my other DVD's have the ability to go back to the main menu when I press "menu." It just keeps repeating the current exercise.

I DISLIKE how fast each stretch and exercise is demonstrated. If this is a DVD I am paying $50 for I want this to be a step by step process - don't show me how to do one side in 10 seconds and move on to the next stretch and/ or exercise. It's as if they are trying to rush through everything and I just get frustrated and anxious with the whole process.

All in all, I am saddened I paid what I did to get what I believe is a subpar product that seemed to be all about quantity (the amount of exercises and stretches demonstrated) not quality (step by step, educational, etc).

5.0 out of 5 stars It is a companion DVD. December 29, 2012
Format:DVD
Dont be mislead, this DVD is not a stand alone version for the Scoliosis program offered in Your Plan For Natural Scoliosis Prevention and Treatment. I highly recommending reading the book and using this DVD to understand the exercises more. I made this mistake and had to wait for the book to get delivered to understand how to use this DVD. Overall both are excellent resources for scoliosis.

The DVD provides a good explanation to various exercises, however it is not meant to be used as a routine watch-and-repeat type of guide. Explanations are brief and the visual demonstration is only for one side, either left or right. So, you can't really do your routine scoliosis exercises with this DVD unless you are ready to pause each time, have the repetitions made for each side and then play next. So the bottom line is to buy the book in addition and have your routines set at your own pace without looking at the screen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Guide December 5, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I went ahead and bought this and see what excercise he recommends for Scoliosis aside from the Scroth technique.. Although the dvd is not a workout dvd. its only instructional in the 3 segment : stretching, stabilizing and strengthening.

I am using another dvd from the Jaseng group for a complete Back regiment as my workout and then I would add some of the method from this DVD.The combination of the 2 works for me since I have a right L3-4 herniated disc, facet joint syndrome ,SI joint syndrome and tight rt hip, hamstring muscles tightness and uncorrected scoliosis.It takes me about 2.5 hours to complete .

I also added some massage techinique from the Sports trainer with the roller which relieves some tension on my rt buttock and hamstring.

I will add update latter on to see my improvements.

5.0 out of 5 stars Safe detailed exercise programs December 8, 2011
Format:DVD
I was searching for books on Scoliosis and ways in which those who have the condition can still benefit from the spinal curvature. We all need to keep as fit and healthy as our bodies allow us to. This book is designed to specifically aid those with Scoliosis and the types of exercise that can be safely and easily achieved.
