Women from every walk of life praise the Pain Free advantage:
"Thanks to Pete Egoscue, I've been pain free for ten years. But
even more important, the Egoscue Method has empowered me with the
tools to stay that way! It's freedom in the truest sense of the
-- Carol LeBeau, news anchor and health reporter, KGT-TV, San Diego "I was an eleven-year-old aspiring athlete when I first started working with Pete Egoscue. At eighteen, I made tennis history by winning nine straight matches to become the first woman qualifier to get to the semifinals at Wimbledon, a feat only John McEnroe had performed in men's tennis. What a season! The Egoscue Method is a gift to women in every season of their lives."
-- Alexandra Stevenson, professional tennis player "Pain Free for Women answers the many questions I have about my health and my children's well-being. It has encouraged me to trust my instincts as a mom and to take charge of my family's health."
-- Linda Lynch, former professional tennis player and mother of two "When I first met Pete Egoscue, I had just had my fourth baby by C-section and was in the hospital recovering from emergency back surgery. I was so weak that I would lie on a futon in the family room as my children played around me! At twenty-nine, I didn't think I would ever be able to play and be active again. Pete and the Egoscue Method showed me how wrong I was! Not only did Pete rehabilitate me and take me out of the severe pain I had dealt with for years, he enabled me to enjoy activities I never could in the past, such as riding horses, playing tennis, soccer, and basketball, running, and practicing yoga. I cannot rave enough about the Egoscue Method. Anyone who is in pain can change their life -- it has been proven!"
-- Sonia Jones, former model and mother of four "Pete Egoscue changed my life in the most positive ways imaginable. Pain Free for Women is a must read for women of all ages -- it's a brilliant blueprint for enhancing the quality of one's life."
-- Sheila Grant, arts patron, cofounder of a regional ballet in Texas, and civic leader
