Testimonial from chronic back pain sufferer
I really feel this is best told by someone who has been there. One of my lovely clients was kind enough to put pen to paper and share her story. She did so in the hope that others with chronic back pain may be inspired to try some yoga therapy – Thanks so much to Jeanette :)
“I was 58 years old and feeling generally unwell; being overweight and sub-thyroid (which included mild depression and an inability to lose weight). I also suffer greatly chronic lower back pain as a result of an injury. Both my GP and physiotherapist were strongly encouraging me to do regular yoga and generally improve my health regime”…..
