Videos of Flutist's Body Mapping

Dear Flutists,
An incredible resource: Videos on youtube, and a new DVD from the authors of "Body Mapping", instantly utilizable for flutists/pianists and other musicians.

Take a look at these sample videos from the DVD:

Book: Body Mapping for Flutists by Lea Pearson

Fabulous way to present the knowledge that these authors have pioneered.
Incredibly valuable information for teachers and students.

Dear Matt,
Yes, it looks stellar. I have the book "Body Mapping for Flutists" but these videos make it even MORE easy to comprehend.
As we get old and stiffen up, I find deep tissue massage, stretching, and ROLFING to all be very helpful. If you can get the medical establishment to help pay for it, I would go for ten Rolfing sessions. Incredible! They make you feel stretchy and bouncy like a 12 year old again. Truth! :>)
Best, Jen

This is the first time I’ve seen a video of body mapping… I’ve played flute for 40 years… About 3000 performances and plenty of practicing… I have no pain! I guess I’ll leave the mapping to others

Yes, there are plenty of people who never have pain, (just like there are many who do not have allergies, or dementia, or who can safely take penicillin.)
We are all as different as snowflakes. That's for sure.
What kinds of performances?
Were they laid back as opposed to competitive?
Best, Jen
