New Year's Resolutions

This spring I will be offering two opportunities to learn breakthrough techniques in person to fix pain, and get stronger and more flexible. People come from all over and have a fun time.

The spring workshops are "Fix Your Own Back Pain - Medical Breakthroughs in Non-Surgical Treatment" and "Stretches That Help, Stretches That Harm."

In the fun, active back pain workshop, learn to get rid of neck, back, and hip pain and keep it from coming back. You will fix the causes of neck pain, back pain, sciatica, herniated and degenerating discs, stenosis, lordosis, facet pain and other problems right in class. In the stretch workshop you will learn about the many common stretches that harm your joints or don't improve flexibility, and innovative stretches to do instead. You will learn how to not get stiff and sore in the first place:
  1. On April 21 2007, we will run both workshops in one full, fast-moving day at Temple University Ambler/Ft Washington campus in Ambler, Pennsylvania. Fix Your Back Pain will run 9:30am to 2pm, and "Stretches That Harm" will run from 2:30 to 4:30pm. Contact Rhonda Geyer, Director, by email or phone (215) 283-1304. Out-of-towners can have a fun Saturday in class and stay to visit Philadelphia on Sunday. Tourist info at
  2. For a slower pace, come to Temple University at the Center City campus in downtown Philadelphia to attend just the Back pain workshop, held over two Saturdays March 3 and 10, 2007. Each class is held from 9am-11:30am. This is one class divided over two sessions. Plan to attend both days. To register e-mail Kevin Wood Director, or call (215) 204-6565.
Links to register for both classes on-line plus more class info are on my web site page for CLASSES. Both workshops are a combination of fun and fast-moving audiovisual lecture and non-strenuous physical practice. Both classes are suitable for the out-of-shape as well as the athlete. Wear comfortable ordinary clothing. If you have to change your clothes to fix pain and move and stretch in healthy ways during normal life, how are you supposed to have an ongoing normal life without pain?

Come prepared to have fun and stretch your brain.
