This book will teach you how to:

  • relieve your own back pain, neck stiffness, and tight shoulder muscles
  • release muscular tension caused by stress and anxiety
  • maintain spine, joint, and breathing health
  • improve muscle function to restore balance and move with greater freedom

Learn how we lose our innate ability to deal effectively with stress, anxiety, injury and trauma.  Learn about Sensory Motor Amnesia - the real reason for the stiffness, aches and pains that we attribute to the aging process.   Most importantly, learn how to restore and maintain comfort and control on your own.

The practical movements described and clearly illustrated within this book will relieve muscular tension in your back, neck, shoulders, and hips.  Three in-depth lessons specifically target the muscular patterns of stress, anxiety, and injury.  A simple 5 – 10 minute daily movement routine will reinforce the lessons.  For adults, this book offers the means to restore and improve comfort and movement.  For children, this book offers the means to prevent shallow breathing, back pain and joint pain that occurs as stress, anxiety, and injury becomes chronic.
