Back in Balance by Richard Brennan
"By understanding the detrimental postural habits we can reform them and allow ourselves to heal. Richard’s explanation of how this can be accomplished through use of the Alexander Technique is masterful, the product of his decades of self-examination and helping others to a life free of pain." - Turner Osler, MD, FACS Emeritus Professor, Department of Surgery, University of Vermont
