Virtuoso pianist Arthur Rubenstein developed crippling arthritis throughout his whole body, except for in his hands. Their consistently fluid, effortless, and balanced movement during years of performance kept his hands in wonderful shape, even as the rest of his body failed him. Our book, Awakening Your Power of Self Healing, is designed to teach you to bring the power of healthy movement into every part of your life, and overcome disabilities and diseases on which others will tell you to give up. It contains revolutionary knowledge you need to grow healthier by the day, prevent disease in the future, and greatly improve your current conditions.
Awakening Your Power of Self Healing helps you to develop a deep awareness of your body and to engage in appropriate, pleasant exercise at the same time. We want to help people understand that there is a way to exercise their bodies safely. We want to help you become aware of your body’s needs, and respond to them. It is time to give up the idea of “no pain, no gain” – instead, Dr. Meir Schneider and his School for Self-Healing would like you to understand that you have everything to gain, with virtually no pain.
The book is written very specifically to be easy to follow. We include 600 exercises, many of which are unavailable anywhere else in the world, along with 300 hand-drawn illustrations meant to clarify the movements for our readers. Above all, we worked hard to make this book friendly, practical, applicable, and useful.
We wrote this book chronologically, according to the body’s needs. We begin with a chapter on breathing, to teach you to breathe slowly, deeply, and smoothly – this is the foundation on which good health is built – and progress from important, universal knowledge to information for specific diseases.
