Call in to speak with the host
My guest today is Esther Gokhale.
She has been involved in integrative therapies all her life. As a young girl growing up in India, she helped her mother, a nurse, treat abandoned babies waiting to be adopted.
This early interest in healing led her to study biochemistry at Harvard and Princeton, acupuncture at the San Francisco School of Oriental Medicine, and anatomy at the Stanford Medical School.
After experiencing crippling back pain and unsuccessful back surgery, Gokhale began her lifelong crusade to vanquish back pain. Her studies at the Aplomb Institute in Paris and years of research in Brazil, India, Portugal and elsewhere led her to develop the Gokhale Method®, a unique, systematic approach to help people find their way back to pain-free living.
Practicing acupuncture and teaching yoga in California for over 20 years helped Gokhale realize that neither conservative nor complementary therapies deliver the results needed by so many in pain. The Gokhale Method continues to grow as qualified Gokhale Method teachers now teach her method worldwide. Gokhale's book, 8 Steps to a Pain-Free Back, has been an Amazon best-seller .
It's good to talk.
