This practical life-changing book offers simple awareness exercises to alleviate neck and back pain and suggests effective ways to avoid suffering by making small lifestyle changes.
Back pain has now reached epidemic proportions with millions of people across the globe experiencing severe muscular pain – in fact, over 4 million people input 'lower back pain' into Google every month. Many are suffering unnecessarily, as the root cause of their pain stems primarily from poor postural habits while performing everyday actions. But help is at hand with Back in Balance, an easy-to-understand practical book designed to help readers discover the cause of their own individual back problem and offer them an effective and lasting solution to their suffering. This essential guide draws on many of the principles of the Alexander Technique, a practical way of releasing muscular tension throughout the body.
Helping you to discover how your posture and movements may be having a detrimental effect on your health, this guide offers simple but effective ways of reducing muscular tension and stress on the bones and joints – and making your life pain free.
"I have just finished reading Back in Balance and found it clarified many things about the technique.
I have been interested in Alexander Technique for a number of years and have read a very random selection of books in an attempt to understand what it is about.
Back in Balance is so clear and easy to read. I wish it had been the first AT book I had come across!
Of all the AT books in my library it will be the one I recommend to people who are interested, even if they don't suffer from back pain."
