  1. There's a great video on YouTube. Esther was asked to give a talk to Google, and it was recorded. Here's the link"

    She demonstrates stretchsitting and shoulder rolls as well as other techniques.

    With stretchlying on the back, I was able to sleep through the whole night and wake up without low back pain. This was not difficult to learn from the book!
