Healing Yoga for Neck and Shoulder Pain: Easy, Effective Practices for Releasing Tension and Relieving Pain Paperback – Illustrated, May 1, 2010
Enhance your purchase
Everyday activities such as using the computer, driving, or even curling up with a good book can create tension in the neck and shoulders. It's no wonder that so many of us have persistent discomfort and pain in these areas. Healing Yoga for Neck and Shoulder Pain presents simple, yoga-based practices that you can do at work and at home to release muscle tension for immediate relief.
After suffering from chronic neck pain for years, author and yoga therapist Carol Krucoff developed the unique self-care program found in this book. Now you, too, can free yourself from neck pain by practicing simple yoga exercises to stretch tight muscles and strengthen weak ones and by learning to properly align your body when performing everyday activities that may be contributing to your pain. This fully illustrated, easy to follow guidebook also addresses common problems that may accompany neck tension, including headaches, upper back pain, and stress.

"In this wonderful, easy-to-read-and-use book, Carol Krucoff has gracefully and intelligently integrated several important healing traditions in order to bring relief to those suffering from neck and shoulder pain and the pain of stress. I recommend it enthusiastically as a friendly vehicle anyone can use to explore and experience the amazing power and healing potential of these human bodies."
—Jeffrey Brantley, MD, director of the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Program at Duke Integrative Medicine, and coauthor of Five Good Minutes® in Your Body
"Unlike modern medicine, which often does little more than suppress the symptoms of neck problems with painkillers, yoga can get at the root causes of pain. In this wonderful book, Krucoff demonstrates safe, gentle, and effective strategies to lessen neck and shoulder discomfort. Be careful, though—yoga’s side effects include peace of mind, improved mood, and better sleep. You could get hooked!"
—Timothy McCall, MD, medical editor of Yoga Journal and author of Yoga as Medicine
"What a gift Krucoff has given us! These practices guide us in both postural and emotional healing of the neck and shoulders by allowing the energy to flow freely, uniting head to body and head to heart. This brings about a sense of balance and ease, reminding us of our joyful nature."
—Nischala Joy Devi, author The Healing Path of Yoga and The Secret Power of Yoga

About the author
Top reviews from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
This book is easy to follow and understand.
The format is well laid out and makes it understandable for all levels of anatomy knowledge.
If you suffer from neck and shoulder pain or are a yoga teacher I recommend you buy this.
It is also not to wordy with many visuals.
I was hoping for some specific exercises for neck
and shoulder problems. Instead its just a basic routine,
do them all but if something hurts dont do it.
Thats not what I bought the book for.
It gives lip service to the anatomy of the shoulder.
The little it says seems pasted in from some
other source and its never referred to at all.
No interest is shown in the clavicles (collar bones) and very little
mention even given to the scapulae (shoulder blades).
Way too much time is spent on relaxation, breathing,
Any old yoga book that you have lying around will
do as well or better than this book.

Honestly I was very shocked when I read this book to find that it was siding towards xenophobia. The book was written in an extremely American biased manner, many people in the world read English and are interested in yoga not only Americans. I can't understand why a book about yoga has been written in such a politically biased way. I perceive yoga to be an open and peacefully practise that is accessible to all (races, genders, beliefs etc) I did not find that this book supported that view point at all.
