Required text: 8 Steps to a Pain-Free Back.



“In six sessions I felt transformed. The approach is stunningly simple and confers immediate results. I wholeheartedly endorse this program.”

“Every year tens of thousands of patients undergo major back surgery without any benefit. By using the novel techniques of the Gokhale Method, many of these patients can avoid such needless and expensive medical procedures and quickly return to a pain-free life.”

        - Joan Baez, folk singer and activist, Woodside, CA
