Earlier this year, I experienced a severe bout of never-had-before-sciatica. I was down for the count, bedridden & practicing for my late 90’s — not my current, normally healthy & active 40’s. I could only lay in one position or stand, but couldn’t walk, sit or find comfort. I was in bed 23 hours a day for over a MONTH. To put it lightly, it was a grueling, extremely painful experience.
I tried energy body work, chiropractic, lots of meditation, but nothing seemed to have any lasting affect for relief..until I happened upon the book, Pain Free, as a strong recommendation from a fellow sciatica sufferer. They cited the Egoscue Method as one of the only things that not only finally helped alleviate their pain, but also helped to bring them back to even better health than before. I ordered it immediately. Devoured the make-sense information, & did the ecises for low back pain straight away. My Husband calls it my “walk on water” moment — I went from gingerly shuffling, to standing in the strong foundation of my bones’ designed alignment — and WALKING with confidence again. All literally in the space of less than 10 minutes!
While my recovery has taken longer than that one session, that experience was hugely impactful & pivotal. Not only to my healing with regard to my back, but also an awakened awareness & reassurance that I can use this “body bible” going forward to fend off or alleviate any future ailments.
I KNEW I wanted to begin working with an Egoscue practitioner to learn more. Thankfully, I found Anna’s website & immediately knew she was the one for me. With her guidance, the Egoscue ecises have helped to create divine alignment & freedom of movement in my body, helping my overcompensating muscles to release with gravity, welcoming my bones to move into their rightful resting/support places, and helping to activate my dormant muscles, inviting them to join the posture party!
Working together, Anna has thoughtfully helped to guide me back to newfound mobility, safety & freedom inside my body. Also — as a very lucky by-product — I’ve been able to completely recover from a years-long on & off painful bout of plantar fasciitis because of Anna’s teaching about how to correctly walk on our feet, to create the strong arches that we were born with. WOW!
I never thought I’d be GRATEFUL for the sciatica experience I went through, but I can honestly say that I AM. Without that pain, I never would’ve been led to the life-changing, resonance-in-my-bones information of Egoscue, and wouldn’t have had the pleasure of getting to know Anna to help lead me back to health.
I believe this simple information is foundational to good health, and that it should be taught to everyone at a young age. The book “Pain Free” has become my favorite gift to give. And the experience of working with Anna has been quite a gift for me…she’s compassionate, intuitive, attentive, warm & super comfortable to be with. I would strongly recommend her life-saving services to anyone looking to enjoy better health.
