As a UK/NHS doctor working in the Pain Management field for 15 years I felt on reading this book that someone had put into words and practical strategies the ideas I had been struggling to formulate. The results are gloriously evident in Vidyamala (with whom I am now training) and in the programs I have been running adopting these techniques.

A wonderful book full of inspiration and practical help for anyone with a chronic condition. It tells Vidyamala's life story and shows how she has learned to live with chronic pain and to set up Breathworks which aims to help anyone who is suffering.
