Your body has an amazing ability to adapt. Because your body is efficient, when we do not use a muscle, the body conserves energy by shutting it off.
Imagine a shriveled arm after being in a cast for weeks. The exact same thing happens when your posture is not balanced. The difference is the process is slow and gradual, so it often goes unnoticed.
When your body is out of balance, certain muscles are not being asked to work. Over time, they cause dysfunction through atrophy or ceasing to work. At the same time, other muscles have to overwork to cover for nonfunctioning muscles – this is compensation. These dysfunctions and compensations not only cause stress to the body, but they also change how the body functions as a unit.
Postural Healing helps to rebalance muscles, realign joints, and restore healthy, functional movement so you can stop the unnecessary suffering, stressing and sitting on the sidelines of life.
The ability to move freely andfeel good in your body is invaluable!
When your body moves better, you feel better overall.
Postural Healing uses Postural Alignment Therapy and Mind-Body Medicine Fundamentals to eliminate chronic pain and improve overall health by addressing the body as a whole, and healing the whole person — body, mind and spirit.
Postural Healing is Ideal For Seniors
Do you currently have pain or limitations that hold you back from living life to the fullest?
What is it you wish you could still do?
What if it is possible to get back to doing just that?
You can age gracefully!
Remaining functional as we age is becoming more and more challenging with how sedentary we have become as a society. We used to have to move to survive.
Now we try to make our lives as motion-free as possible with all of our modern conveniences: remote controls, garage openers, dishwashers, etc. The old saying, “Move it or lose it,” is quite true.
Our bodies have an amazing ability to adapt to our environment. When we do not use certain muscles, our body efficiently adapts by shutting the unused muscles off to conserve energy.
When we suddenly need those unused muscles, when tripping on uneven pavement or bending to pick up something, we can be prone to injury because those muscles have become dormant. When rebalanced, all the muscles are used as they are intended to be, allowing you to prevent injury and move through life with grace and ease.
