"This is a little gem of a book; simple, to the point and yet very effective in showing how to release chronic tension."
--Joseph Heller, founder of Hellerwork Structural Integration and co-author, Bodywise
"Undulation is a safe and wonderful complement to more traditional therapeutic modalities. I utilize it every day in my work to help clients discover new movement pathways and experience freedom and flow in their bodies."
--Robin Rothenberg, Certified Yoga Therapist and author of the Essential Low Back Program
"I have used body undulation ever since I learned it from Emilie Conrad in 1986--in airports (yup) and hotels to shake off travel stiffness, and it is especially useful prior to stressful events. Undulation is not a method; it is simply a manner of restoring and exploring your body's felt sense. Use this fine book to get into it, and then let yourself go into the waves."
--Tom Myers, author of Anatomy Trains
"The innate movement language of the body has been stifled environmentally, culturally, and interpersonally. With Undulation, Anita Boser has found a gentle and systematic way to help bodies in any condition of health to unleash motion and self-healing capacity. Flip to any page and you will find your joints spontaneously engaged in fluid movements that are beautifully illustrated. A must-read for movement professionals who work with chronic pain, the elderly, or need creative ideas to un-glue body fears in any body."
--Jill Miller, author of The Roll Model: A Step by Step Guide to Erase Pain,
Improve Mobility and Live Better in Your Body
"This wonderful resource should be on everyone's shelf. My back hasn't felt this good in years! This is the book to read if you have neck, shoulder, upper back, or lower back tension."
--Sharon Butler, author of Conquering Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Other
Repetitive Strain Injuries: A Self-Care Program
"Undulation is a clever and innovative way to combat the 'disease' of sitting in front of your computer. A minute or so of undulation every hour can do wonders for anyone with pain, or who wants to prevent pain. I have had students and office personnel perform undulations throughout the working day, and the results have been phenomenal."
--Staffan Elgelid, Associate Professor of Physical Therapy, GCFP, Certified Yoga Therapist,
co-author of Yoga for Stress and Anxiety and the forthcoming Yoga for Active Adults
"An excellent contribution! It can do miracles for your fascial body, and your mind as well. I highly recommend it."
--Robert Schleip, PhD, author, internationally known fascia researcher, and co-creator of Fascial Fitness
About the Author
As a child, Anita was the smart kid, the one you’d want to help you with your homework, but the next-to-last one picked for any sports team. Then as an adult, when her twins were six, she couldn’t ignore her upper back and neck pain any longer. She found relief in Hellerwork Structural Integration and in undulation, which helped her release tension and feel better. Now a structural integrator herself, she has taught undulations to thousands of people and found that it was accessible to all of them, especially those with chronic pain, fibromyalgia, arthritis, and scoliosis—even those who had spine surgery. She became convinced that undulation was essential to spine health and wanted to share it with more people. In 2007, Anita wrote and published Relieve Stiffness and Feel Young with Undulation and in 2016, released a second edition, Undulation: Relieve Stiffness and Feel Young, which includes the same exercises, but organized in sections so readers can find the ones that will help them most. Anita hasn’t been chosen for a sports team recently, but she has joined a belly dance troupe and taught yoga and dance. At 52, she is stronger and more flexible than any other time in her life. “It’s like I was the uncoordinated duckling who undulated into a graceful swan,” she says, “If my body can change like this, I know that anyone can get the same results.”

Well, now I have something concrete that I can highly recommend: Anita Boser's Undulation. Her system is wonderful! With very little investment of time, everyone can gain a more flexible spine, more freedom of movement and greater body awareness - all of which add up to more vitality and a much improved quality of life. Anita explains very clearly just why movement is necessary to maintain (or regain) a healthy, vital body. And then she provides a unique and very enjoyable system of movements that produces results quickly and easily.
Thank you, Anita!
