Find Your Primal Posture and Sit Without Back Pain

Esther Gokhale founded her Palo Alto, California-based center 20 years ago and has helped thousands of people get free of pain through her application of the Gokhale Method – a systematic process of restoring pain-free posture and movement.

Esther has been involved in integrative therapies all her life.  As a young girl growing up in India, she helped her mother, a registered nurse, treat abandoned babies awaiting adoption.  She went on to study biochemistry at Harvard and Princeton and acupuncture at the San Francisco School of Oriental Medicine.

After crippling back pain during her first pregnancy and unsuccessful back surgery, she began her lifelong crusade to find a solution to back pain.  Her studies at the Aplomb Institute in Paris and years of research in Burkina Faso, India, Portugal, and elsewhere led to her development of the Gokhale Method. She and other trained Gokhale Method instructors routinely offer courses throughout the United States, Europe, the U.K. and Israel.

See her describe her research on Ted Talks!

 

The chiropractic mission in a nutshell…

Visually interesting video explaining the main chiropractic principle: removing interference to the communication between brain and body so ALL our bodily systems are getting the messages they need to function properly. No matter what our health issues (seen or unseen), at a minimum we need our brain and body to be able to communicate fully and clearly!

Affordable Care Act

We hear a lot of people asking about how the Affordable Care Act will affect us here in Washington.  Today I found the following pages that were very helpful in helping me to understand what is coming:

http://www.insurance.wa.gov/current-issues-reform/health-care-reform/documents/affordable-care-act.pdf

…and the place to go if you are uninsured and looking to find out what will be available this fall in terms of health care coverage or if you are currently insured and want to compare what you already have with other possibilities:

If you are needing to find out how to learn about the Affordable Care Act in your state try:

Hope this is helpful!
