I have a blog about my experience with lots of info www.rtosjourney.blogspot.com
If nothing else at least my pain and issues can help educate others.
Hope you find the relief you deserve!
Yesterday I was ready to take on the world, and was thinking maybe I am meant to have the ribs, mybe they help me with my singing or something? Today after the pain of holding a heavy folder, I am not so sure about my ability to cope just using Alexander technique. Nonetheless, your website is inspiring, and I am hoping to study Alexander when I get back o Australia.
Here's to pain management through good spinal use and healthy living!
Thanks again for your reply.
