Esther Gokhale

The Gokhale Method

Esther Gokhale founded her Palo Alto, California-based center 20 years ago and has helped thousands of people get free of pain through her application of the Gokhale Method – a systematic process of restoring pain-free posture and movement.

Esther has been involved in integrative therapies all her life. As a young girl growing up in India, she helped her mother, a registered nurse, treat abandoned babies awaiting adoption. She went on to study biochemistry at Harvard and Princeton and acupuncture at the San Francisco School of Oriental Medicine.

After crippling back pain during her first pregnancy and unsuccessful back surgery, she began her lifelong crusade to find a solution to back pain. Her studies at the Aplomb Institute in Paris and years of research in Burkina Faso, India, Portugal, and elsewhere led to her development of the Gokhale Method. She and other trained Gokhale Method instructors routinely offer courses throughout the United States, Europe, the U.K. and Israel.
