"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.

The hard part is that changing your posture is difficult. It's a subconcious thing that you have to constantly remind yourself of during the first few months. But it is absolutely worth it. In the beginning it's tricky. But eventually it starts feeling unnatural to have your posture in the incorrect way, and it starts feeling natural to have it in the correct posture.
So eventually the correct posture starts to become subconcious.
Absolutely worth the effort, because it will mean a healthy back that isn't constantly being trashed by lousy posture.
If you don't fix your posture--your back is ALWAYS going to be a problem. That's what I've learned.
Check out her lectures posted on YOUTUBE as well. She's awesome.
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?
