The advance copy of my new book 'Free Yourself from Back Pain - A guide to the Alexander Technique' arrived on my desk yesterday from the publisher's. It's not due into the shops until mid February 2011 but at last, 16 months after its inception it is finally here.
There is nothing quite like seeing your words in print to reinforce your worst concerns, that no matter what I might think of it now, it cannot be changed! I dare not read it for fear of what I may discover.... Did I write THAT?
Anyway, having stolen the courage to flick through, I feel quite pleased that it looks so well and I do hope it's of interest and help to a great many people. Do you know that 80% of the population suffer back pain in some time of their lives? The Alexander Technique has been clinically proven to provide long lasting relief from back pain and to address the root causes such as postural habits and tensions.
So here it is....one copy. And a quick look at Amazon I see that it is already available for pre order. If you're interested, click Here.
Although one cannot learn the Alexander Technique from a book as it requires us to have one-to-one lessons from a qualified teacher, I do hope this book acts as a helpful aid-memoir to anyone already having lessons or may encourage those who have not, to help themselves. There is no-one in a better position to help us, including any doctor or therapist, than ourselves. If we can learn to release our own tensions and maintain healthy upright poise, we will not suffer back pain due to postural problems. Looking after ourselves is the key to enjoying a long and healthy life....free of back pain.
