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

        - Deirdre Stegman, M.D. Internal Medicine, Palo Alto Medical Foundation


“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.”

"Although stunningly simple, the Gokhale Method™ turns much of conventional wisdom about pain and posture on its head. Each session of the course gave immediate results and I now look forward to many years of a healthy neck and back."

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