Born blind and declared incurable after a series of childhood operations, Meir Schneider remained convinced that his disability was not permanent. As a teenager he began to work with teachers who gave him exercises to reverse his blindness. Within four years he gained a remarkable degree of vision, and began developing a system of therapeutic exercise combining movement, breathing, and mental imagery. When he began working with others, miraculous recoveries ensued.Movement for Self-Healing details Schneider's methods of stimulating the natural healing powers of the body, with specific guidelines for improving vision, back problems, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, breathing, and muscular dystrophy.

The author, founder and director of the Center for Self-Healing in San Francisco, states that with determination, hard work, and deep inner knowledge, anyone can overcome "incurable" disease. A Russian-born Israeli, Schneider was blind until age 17, when a companion taught him the unorthodox Bates method of eye exercise, which restored his sight. He became a teacher and massage therapist in Tel Aviv, and emigrated to the United States in 1975. In this personal narrative, Schneider recounts his unusual life and work with victims of chronic degenerative diseases. A good addition to collections on alternative medicine.
