The Pain-Free Ann
Ann Stanley is a professional flute player, and a massage therapist. Due to an extremely hunched-over
back, she has had constant pain in the middle of her back for years. Her left shoulder became inflamed
all the time. Often, when playing music, it would be impossible to lift her arms.
Over many years she has tried all kinds of things to get rid of the pain, and to straighten out her
curved back: modern dance, yoga, tai chi, Rolfing, and Cranio-Sacral therapy. Each of these modalities
helped some, for a little while, but when she discovered The Vance Stance® and tried it, this was what
she said, “nothing has come close to transforming my body the way The Vance Stance has!”
Now her whole body has changed, for the better. The crushing pain in her back is gone. People remark now
how straight she looks, and she is actually pleased when she looks in the mirror now.
“When I remember to do what Dr. Bonner has taught me, and keep my shoulders back and down, the burning shoulder pain doesn’t flare up. I am much more flexible and I notice I am stronger,” she said.
