After the first 6 months and the disappearence of the pains I actually stopped having A.T. lessons.
It did cost some money, the medical insurance would not help in any way and the pain was no longer there. I had achieved a lot more then expected, what was there more to get?
I thought I could not afford to continue paying for the lessons and thought there was not much point in permanent lessons: I had learned a new way to USE my body and now I should simply apply what I had learned!
Eventually I started to notice the strong back pains rarely reappeared but some other smaller pains (neck, wrist, maxilar, others) which appeared as a result of accidents or years of bad habits in body USE started being noticed.
Some were actually well-known recurring pains which previously I always ignored because compared to the intense back pain I felt they were irrelevant!...
Others were new and accidental in nature and would also in the past have been overlooked but were now clearly noticed.
