This story reached us and we think it is worth sharing:
Working as an artist/designer for 60 years, has put my neck and back through a long-range program of pain-inducing moves.
The influence of this pain producing environment changed course when I came across Esther Gokhale’s method for addressing back pain and bought her book: “8 Steps to a Pain- Free Back.” About a year ago I also began taking lessons from her Chicago training representative, Aurelia Vaicekauskas. Her guidance, patience, empathy and knowledge of the Gokhale system has been a continuing blessing.
I also bought the Gokhale Pain Free Chair. I’m so glad I did. It’s everything advertised and more! It has become an essential tool for me whether sitting at my computer or drawing board. One of the reasons behind its success is that it allows movement in the chair to other stress relieiving Gokhale sitting positions. This flexibility is not found on hard moulded chairs and other devices. It’s an essential option for anyone doing work that tends to require periods of time in a fixed position.
Another Gokhale Chair advantage: it’s armless! Chair arms are great for contemplating. Not so great if you have to move your hands and arms between drawing, painting, typing and other tasks. The Gokhale Chair armless feature also allows you to get closer to work areas as needed.
For me the pain relief from using the Gokhale Chair has been outstanding! It also seems to fit my lifestyle. I never was a go-to-the-gym workout person. Now the Gokhale Chair is my workout...while I get to do the work I love.
Now that’s a win-win situation!. Thank you!. Thank you!
BREAKING NEWS....Since I now work at home...I also use the Gokhale Chair at the kitchen table. Less pain! Better posture! And another Gokhale win-win advantage!
Last chance: Due to increased manufacturing costs we have to increase the chair price by $50 from March 1, 2019 on. This also affects the Premium Bundle.
