"The most lucid account I have read of how the human spine works, with handy lessons in how to stand, sit, walk, and sleep free of back pain." —J. M. Coetzee, Nobel Prize–winner in Literature
"8 Steps to a Pain-Free Back is the best back pain book on the market. I had significant problems with low back pain and sciatica for more than two decades before Esther Gokhale was able to help me. If I had found her earlier, it could have saved me a great deal of pain and grief.” —Paul R. Ehrlich, author, Human Natures and Population Bomb
"A great book for someone who is serious about achieving a pain-free back and willing to work to reach that goal." —American Association of Orthopaedic Surgeons
From the Author
For some, a pain-free life is only a memory, but it doesn't have to be. Through my experience in healing my own back pain, coupled with extensive training and research, I have developed a technique to alleviate back pain--the Gokhale Method. It has been a privilege and a pleasure to help thousands of people re-learn the way their bodies were designed to move--gracefully and with ease. I have spent fifteen years teaching the technique, honing it for clarity and efficiency, and am delighted to present it here for general use. Many physicians now refer their back patients to me, and almost all the patients start to improve from the first lesson. In many cases the results are dramatic (see page 24). But then there are the people who can't come to see me, people who call me from the East Coast or the Midwest, perhaps friends or relatives of my patients, who are suffering terribly and need help. For years, I have wished there were a book that I could send them with step-by-step instructions and demonstrations of my technique. And here it is.

This many years later, I continue to benefit and be grateful for the knowledge I gained from Esther's program. I'm pretty sure I've told everyone I know about it -- it's just that useful. And why live with back/shoulder/neck/leg/foot pain?
I thought I had fairly good posture but still I would get an achy back. Since using her techniques, I have found an easier, pain-free way to live in my body. As a health care provider, I have practiced these techniques with many of my patients to great effect. Not only are people reporting happy backs, but they are also feeling relief in necks, knees, feet, and shoulders. With these simple guides to alignment, all the hinges work better.
The book has everything you need to bring back the joy of being in postural alignment. Her website has some short videos too, but the book is the key.
Buy this book if you have back pain or are a health care provider or you have a friend with back pain. It is FABULOUS!
