Explore easy ways to live life pain free

Eliminate the root cause of many painful conditions with this easy to follow plan from neuromuscular therapist, yoga instructor and pain specialist Lee Albert, who teaches five simple exercises to correct muscle imbalance, based upon 30 years of working with clients. “3 Steps of Pain Free Living” airs on Monday, June 1 at 8:30 p.m. 

Albert also shares a gentle breathing exercise that has been shown to slow down the “fight or flight” (stress response) in as little as ten minutes. He demonstrates how altering our breathing pattern makes it possible to reduce stress and add more calmness to our lives. The breathing practice will often improve sleep and has been shown to boost the immune system and help with many chronic conditions. And it’s so easy it can even be done in bed.
