As an encore to his best seller, Pain Free, Pete Egoscue's latest book--LET'S LIGHTEN UP: Replenish What Makes Us Strong; Enjoy the Very Best of Health; Always Catch The Rain will inevitably be linked and compared to that still classic guide to the non-medical, postural treatment of dysfunction in the human musculoskeletal system.

Long live Pain Free.

And so be it. The good news is there is plenty of room on the shelf for Pain Free and its various offspring. In fact, LET'S LIGHTEN UP, or LUP, as it is known somewhat irreverently around the Egoscue Method network that Pete Egoscue founded and still serves as CEO, was written expressly for those who read Pain Free (and probably shared it with their relatives and friends) and still have a deep and abiding interest in the subject. Until now, Pete hasn't been completely successful in closing the loop for all his readers: You may still have questions that need answers (why do Supine Groin E-cises take so darn long?). On the other hand, you may find yourself in the ranks of those who truly get it and want to spread the word.

For instance, those with the open loop situation need to know that the new book takes them to an important place - deep inside their emotions. They can come away from LET'S LIGHTEN UP with an amazing new technique to optimize their health and their spirits. It is so fast and effective that many of the readers who tried it were stunned while going through early drafts of the book.

Not keeping score or anything, but that's a game-changer: Pete succeeded in reuniting health with emotion. Many people cannot answer the simple question, How do you feel? Without access to our emotions, it is impossible to know what our body is trying to tell us about our physiological systems as we work and play. As lapses go, this is indeed worrisome since it is a skill the human body has excelled at for going on a million years. Without that emotional input, grinding it out with perspiration and perseverance aren't enough to keep us strong, balanced and healthy. Why? It seems too mindless, so we try to skate by on intellect. However, if we don't feel it, we don t really believe it. Only awareness of the present moment - how I feel right now - can take us to a state of supreme confidence that expects success and achieves it. Even if it is only, really, really, really enjoying the morning sunlight.

The second group of readers - the Get It Patrol - need to know why they get it. Not for the sake of their egos but for the sake of their inner peace, which is under assault by the expert-driven modern culture that hounds them to trust only in impressive credentials that exist outside of themselves in the Neverland of Objective Fact. The problem is that when we go outside of ourselves for validation, we lose our most important gift - complete awareness of what the body needs to survive and prosper.

LET'S LIGHTEN UP can show everyone how to rescue awareness from the well-meaning experts who do not believe in belief. The book won't just tell you about the power of belief through awareness (and thus become another expert conversing with other experts) -- it shows you how to quickly and personally experience it as you go about the business of realigning the musculoskeletal system through postural therapy.

Sounds trite, but the missing ingredient isn't missing any longer. It is in this book. With it you'll be able to heal and strengthen and balance your body. No more almost recoveries from injuries, illness and aging. LET'S LIGHTEN UP can help you conquer fear of failure, which is the guaranteed consequence of letting ourselves become unaware.

The loop - expectation, effort, awareness, belief --closes, forging an incredibly powerful health connection.
