"Luke is a very active man who especially loves golf and CrossFit.
When I met Luke, he was battling a sudden onset of severe hip pain that had lasted for over a year. The pain forced him to stop his activities. Some days were so bad he could not walk.
At 29, he felt his only options were injections and surgery. Luke had tried chiropractors, doctors and stretches and nothing worked. That’s when he stumbled upon Postural Healing online and decided to give it a try.
We identified where his body was out of balance and created an individualized program designed to realign his body, allowing it to heal naturally. Instead of being in debilitating pain, Luke was pain-free without injections or surgery within the first three sessions. He has not had a single reoccurrence of pain since we began working together over a year ago.
Instead of being unable to walk or enjoy his favorite activities, Luke has the freedom to run, play golf and return to CrossFit classes. In addition, he is able to play and keep up with his young active sons.
Instead of having imbalances in his hips and shoulders during his squats and overhead presses, Luke and his coaches witnessed better posture and alignment. His mobility increased as well as his strength and range of motion.
Not only is Luke's pain gone, but his athletic performance is improved. And because his CrossFit coaches observed his success they have become clients, too!" - Anna
If you relate to Luke’s story and want to change your current reality, then let’s connect to see if Postural Healing is right for you.

Your golf swing is only as good as your posture!
Do you experience pain and/or limitations in your golf swing?
Have you have tried for years without results to change different swing faults or patterns?
Do you want to increase flexibility and rotation? Would you like to get more power behind your shots, hitting the ball farther and more accurately?
Despite all the technological improvements in golf equipment, the average handicap has not dropped in the past 16 years.
If your body can’t produce an efficient swing the best set of golf clubs won’t do a thing for you. On the same note, you can have a top golf pro teaching you great technique, but if your body is out of balance and unable to create the desired movement, all the best coaching in the world won’t help you.
Your golf swing is only as good as your posture. Posture comes first. When your body has imbalances then you experience limitations in your swing, not to mention pain or pain “waiting to happen.” Remove the imbalances and you create an opportunity for your body to produce a powerful, balanced golf swing.
Golfers are discovering that the clubs don’t play the game, the golfer does. The only way for you to achieve a lower handicap is to improve your function. Postural Alignment Therapy is an effective means to get there.

Gain more than enhanced performance!
When you incorporate Postural Healing into your training program you gain more than enhanced performance.
Postural Alignment Therapy is form of gentle corrective exercise designed to realign the eight major load joints.
When aligned, the body naturally performs at higher levels. Improved posture means moving through your joints more cleanly and efficiently.
When muscles are in balance and firing in the proper sequence, then the muscles designed for a given job are being utilized correctly.
This produces movements that are strong, balanced, efficient and controlled. Range of motion/flexibility, endurance, speed, timing, etc., are all improved.
Better Race Times
Align the joints, allow the proper muscles to do their intended job and the result is more efficient movement. More efficient movement means requiring less energy to create the same output. The extra energy can be used elsewhere to create more speed, power, endurance, etc.
Increased Range of Motion
If you don’t have full range of motion you will not be able to implement technique without compensating elsewhere in the body. When we force range of motion we create unnatural movement which eventually leads to joint deterioration, muscle pulls, etc.
Example benefits include:
Increased ability to get into and maintain a better position on the bike
Increased ability to create smoother, more controlled and efficient swim strokes
Increased ability to get a healthy hip extension in your run
Longevity in the Sport
When your joints are aligned, constant grinding and friction is prevented. You can play longer, harder and have fun doing it!
Injuries are less likely to occur when your body is functioning in balance. Minimizing compensation and dysfunction creates an environment in which the proper muscles are stabilizing and/or working in an efficient manner. Your movements are then balanced, controlled and agile. When your posture is aligned you experience greater speed, strength and flexibility.
Faster Recovery from Injury
If an injury happens, an aligned body is naturally able to regenerate and heal itself more quickly and fully. A body that is unbalanced will slow the healing process and likely result in movement that has more compensation and dysfunction.
Be Active and Pain-Free No Matter Your Age
Years after competing, wouldn't you like to be able to live, play, be active and pain free?
Improved Breathing and Recovery
When aligned with your chest open, your shoulders and head back, you bring oxygen into your body and circulate it through your system more efficiently.
After your workout, your body is able to recover more quickly.
