Are you tired of having back or joint pain? You can learn how to be free of pain! Learning what is the underlying cause of your pain will enable you to make changes that eliminate your pain. Almost everyone in highly industrialized countries has adopted a modern posture that is misaligned and so pervasive we can't even see it. Many treatments don't address the underlying cause of pain.
Learning a set of simple, specific guidelines can bring you relief from pain anytime, anywhere. The same guidelines that take away your pain also straighten your spine.
Come learn how at a Balance Method/"Spinefulness" workshop.

Why do people in some countries have no back pain? 80% of the population in the United States suffers from back pain, compared to only 5% in many other countries, such as Portugal and Greece. These healthy people move slightly differently than we do. The teaching of the Balance Center is based on more than 40 years of research on these healthy populations. When you stand, bend, sit, walk, and sleep as these people do, your pain can be significantly reduced or eliminated.

-No special devices, special equipment or special chairs are needed

WHAT DO PEOPLE SAY ABOUT THE RESULTS OF BALANCE/SPINEFULNESS?
“I have successfully used Balance Center instructions as part of a comprehensive treatment program for my patients with painful spinal conditions.”
- William Firtch, M.D.
"This class was a revelation for me. It increased my awareness of being out of Balance and I learned simple changes I can make to become more balanced and pain free. It was powerful learning what I can do on a daily basis to avoid pain. Dana taught us simple techniques to use everyday to correct bad posture and live pain free. It’s given me hope and has been a life changing experience that has put me back in control ."
- Julie Shapiro, Oakland, CA
"For 17 years I spent thousands of dollars for medical treatment and loss of work time to find a solution to relieve lower back pain due to an auto accident. I sought treatment using acupuncture, acupressure, massage therapy, osteopathic and more. These treatments were helpful for a short time, but it did not teach me the proper body mechanics for lifelong relief. Surgery and continuous use of drugs was not a viable option. The classes I took from Dana at Sonoma Body Balance were my saving grace. I learned how to properly sit, sleep, walk, drive, bend, lift, etc. I have not experienced any back pain since completing the classes."
- Wayland Lew
"Before I took the Balance class, I experienced chronic neck, low back, hip, and gluteal tension, in spite of the fact that I received weekly chiropractic adjustments. While taking the class, my tension decreased significantly. The tools I learned in the class also enabled me to teach basic sitting skills to patients which helped eliminate a major cause of recurring back pain for many of them."
-Jay Bunker, Chiropractor
