Books Info:

8 Steps to a Pain-Free Back free pdf After crippling back pain during her first pregnancy and unsuccessful back surgery, Esther Gokhale became intensely focused on finding the key to a pain-free body. Her studies at the Aplomb Institute in Paris and years of research in Burkina Faso, India and Portugal led to her develop the Gokhale Method. Gokhale continues to dedicate her life to posture therapy, helping people reclaim a pain-free life through implementing important physiological changes. Gokhale believes the root of a painful back, a painful body, postural dysfunctional and general feelings of discomfort are due to the fact we have lost sight of how to use our bodies. According to Gokhale the cause of such maladies is not due to the simple fact that we move less now than we ever have before, but rather it's the way we hold and position our bodies while undertaking such sedentary tasks that is creating the problem. While many of us slump our spines into a C-Shaped position, there is also a host of us that go the other way and arch up into a tense S shape, Gokhale aims to encourage her students and followers return their bodies to the natural stance, holding ourselves upright and relaxed in a tall J shape. The Gokhale Method teaches followers how posture is linked to any number of seemingly unrelated ailments, including disc degeneration, certain arthritic changes and even respiratory problems.

About Esther Gokhale

Esther Gokhale (Go-clay) has been involved in integrative therapies all her life. As a young girl growing up in India, she helped her mother, a registered nurse, treat abandoned babies waiting to be adopted. This early interest led her to study biochemistry at Harvard and Princeton and, later, acupuncture at the San Francisco School of Oriental Medicine. After crippling back pain during her fi rst pregnancy and unsuccessful back surgery, she began her lifelong crusade to fi nd a solution to back pain. Her studies at the Aplomb Institute in Paris and years of research in Burkina Faso, India, Portugal, and elsewhere led to her development of the Gokhale Method, which she has been teaching at her Palo Alto wellness center for the past fi fteen years.
