From the A-list bodyworker, trainer, and alignment expert dubbed “the body whisperer” by Goop comes Taller, Slimmer, Younger—a powerfully simple daily foam roller routine to help you sculpt longer, leaner muscles, stand an inch taller, look ten pounds slimmer, and renew your body and mind. Are you ready to roll? ALIGN YOUR BODY, ALIGN YOUR LIFE There’s a new buzzword in the fitness world: fascia. It’s the connective tissue that wraps around your muscles and organs and helps keep everything in place. But in our increasingly busy and often stressful lives, tension and toxins are often stored within our fascia, resulting in serious long-term consequences including poor posture, excess weight, acute anxiety, and chronic pain. Fitness and alignment expert Lauren Roxburgh—who has worked with such stars as Gwyneth Paltrow, Gabby Reece, Melissa Rauch, and Baron Davis—has the solution to keep your fascia supple, flexible, and strong. Using only a foam roller, you can reshape and elongate your muscles for a leaner, younger look, while also releasing tension, breaking up scar tissue, and ridding yourself of toxins. In just fifteen minutes a day, Roxburgh’s 21-day program will guide you through a simple series of unique rolling techniques that target ten primary areas of the body, including the shoulders, chest, arms, legs, hips, butt, back, and stomach. The result is a healthy, balanced, aligned body that not only looks but feels fantastic. Advance praise for Taller, Slimmer, Younger “As an athlete with a lifelong passion for fitness and wellness, I am always looking to get an edge in my body, and Lauren Roxburgh has helped me do just that. Lauren’s philosophy will rejuvenate your body and spirit, helping you look and feel lighter and brighter, reducing stress and tension, while dramatically improving your stance in your body and also in your life!”—Gabby Reece, U.S. beach volleyball champion “This book is sure to become the body bible for anyone who wants to live a healthy, fit, and balanced life.”—Melissa Rauch, actress, The Big Bang Theory and True Blood “Lauren’s method has rejuvenated my spirit, giving me more energy and strength, which has allowed me to perform better on and off the court.”—Baron Davis, two-time NBA all-star “Lauren’s method sculpts the body’s soft tissues, slimming and streamlining whatever part you work. She’s a ‘body whisperer!’”—Goop “If you’ve never tried foam rolling, I highly recommend it. [Lauren Roxburgh’s] program is designed to improve posture, release tension and stress, activate and strengthen the core, and heal from the inside out. When I was a model, I used a foam roller to lengthen my muscles. I’m so excited to get back into it once I give birth! Oh, and Goop dubbed her ‘The Body Whisperer.’ Enough said.”—MollySims.com

Genre: Health & Fitness

Pain is the body's way of communicating that something is wrong. Muscle pains are among the most commonly reported pain. Pain may be due to stress, overuse, improper body mechanics and fatigue. Drugs to relieve pain can only do so much and the effects often wear off sooner than desired. Long term use of pain killers is bad for the health and can cause several health problems such as abnormal bleeding and stomach ulcers. A revolutionary, self-treatment method was developed to deal with pain. It effectively relieves chronic pain without the need for drugs or surgery. It only takes a few minutes each day to provide long-lasting relief of pain. This method is called the MELT method. MELT means Myofascial Energetic Length Technique. This technique was developed by Sue Hitzmann, and aims to restore the supportive function of the body's connective tissues particularly in the muscles, bones and skin. By restoring and enhancing the function of the connective tissues, chronic pain is eliminated, muscle and bone performance is improved, and stress is decreased. Accumulated stress comes from repetitive movements such as sitting, standing and lifting related to everyday life. Get your copy of The MELT Method today and start to live pain free.

True to Form

Release Date: 2016-05-17
Genre: Health & Fitness

Radical in its simplicity, Dr. Eric Goodman’s visionary approach to mindful movement corrects the complacent adaptations that lead to back and joint pain, and teaches us to harness the body’s natural movement patterns into daily activities to make us fit, healthy, and pain free. Our sedentary lifestyle has led to an epidemic of chronic pain. By adapting to posture and movement that have us out of balance—including sitting all day at a keyboard, tilting our heads forward to look at our phones—we consistently compromise our joints, give our organs less room to function, and weaken our muscles. How we hold and live in our bodies is fundamental to our overall health, and the good news is that we all hold the key to a healthier body. Dr. Goodman has spent years studying human physiology and movement. He has trained world-class athletes for better performance, and has healed people of all ages and occupations of lifelong debilitating pain. His theory of self-healing is now available to everyone. His practical program trains the posterior muscle chain—shoulders, back, butt, and legs—shifting the burden of support away from joints and putting it back where it belongs: into large muscle groups. Filled with helpful diagrams and sixty color photographs, True to Form shows readers how to successfully integrate these powerful movements into everyday life—from playing with the kids to washing dishes to long hours in the office—transforming ordinary physical actions into active and mindful movements that help to eliminate pain, up your game, or simply feel more energetic. True to Form shows you how to move better, breathe better, and get back to using your body the way nature intended.
