Meir Schneider runs a School for Self Healing in San Francisco and several years ago I had the occasion to take a seminar from Meir on therapy massage. I asked him to come to give us a few tips on how to improve things that prevent us from working around our own houses as we get older, like failing eyesight and stiffening hands.
Meir was born legally blind, and now has functional, though not perfect, eyesight. He has a new video out called Yoga for the Eyes, that I use myself and highly recommend.
He also has a great book out called Handbook for Self-Healing which is a very complete book on therapeutic massage and self massage. On the show he gave us some wonderful tips on getting arthritic fingers working again.
Relaxation and blood circulation are the two keys that allow the body itself to heal many of the things that ail us.
You should check out the re-runs of this show. We have received more correspondance about Meir's visit than any other single subject we ever covered on this show. You can get more information on Meir's work at "www.self-healing.org"
