Elaine Petrone knows pain. As a young dancer, she suffered a debilitating injury and was told she'd be lucky to walk without a limp, let alone dance. Her quest to heal herself led her to develop the Elaine Petrone Method. It healed her injury, alleviated her pain, and changed her life. For 30 years, she has been teaching individuals, doctors, and therapists how to do the same.
Unlike exercise programs that are designed to build muscle through repetitive motion and muscle tightening, the Elaine Petrone Method teaches you to "unwork" the excess muscle tension that contributes to chronic low backache, joint pain, arthritis, anxiety, fatigue, stress, and a host of everyday twinges, spasms, and hurts. Revolutionary in its simplicity, this program will show you how to use controlled breathing, two squishy balls, and gentle movements to let your lower back and hips heal themselves. (Coming in January 2007 for pain in the shoulders, neck and head: "The Elaine Petrone Method: Stop the Clock.")
Muscles respond to stress by activating a cycle of pain in your body. Whether your pain comes from injury, improper body alignment, or just the stress of everyday life, get on the ball and get relief!
