Healthy Posture Program
Postural Healing Can Help
Posture affects every aspect of your health.
Don’t allow poor posture or spinal conditions to reduce your quality of life.
Postural Healing helps you restore your posture - relieving pain, improving mobility and your overall health.
Internal and External Wellbeing
Your posture is an outward reflection of your internal well-being. Posture affects your health and vibrancy on multiple levels.
Imagine how poor posture affects the function and flow of all of your internal systems like respiration, digestion, hormones, reproductive system and circulation.
You may have experienced how poor posture can affect your emotional state, self-esteem and confidence. Your ability to think and focus, and your energy flow, may be affected as well.
When your body is aligned your internal systems (digestion, elimination, hormone flow, reproductive systems) all function efficiently. You will find yourself thinking more clearly and feel better emotionally and energetically.
“Working with Anna has improved my posture so much! In just a short period of time, my neck and shoulders have loosened up and my body awareness has improved. I have also noticed a significant reduction in my lower back pain. The movements from our Postural Healing Together class are simple and effective. Anyone can do this and everyone will be glad that they did.”
It is possible to avoid braces and surgery!
Scoliosis, kyphosis, and other postural conditions occur because of muscular dysfunction. Weak and compensating muscles allow the spine to move out of alignment and over time can cause structural damage.
Surgery for example, focuses on changing the structure but ignores the muscle imbalances that created the problem in the first place. It is vital to address these muscular imbalances so that the body can heal.
Muscles can pull bones out of alignment. Scoliosis, kyphosis, and poor posture cause muscle imbalances and pull the spine into a compromised position.
Postural Healing rebalances muscles and realigns joints
which over time can prevent and decrease
the degree of scoliosis or kyphosis curvatures.
Improving your posture can help you:
• Relieve pain
• Regain better function and movement
• Avoid braces and surgeries
• Feel more confident
Scoliosis and Kyphosis
Postural Alignment Therapy can prevent and decrease scoliosis or kyphosis curvatures which allow you to be more functional, avoiding braces and surgeries.
Postural Healing helps you feel better in your body and increases your confidence.
Stenosis, Spondylolisthesis, Spondylolysis, Spondylosis
Postural Healing helps to restore the natural s-curve of the spine which opens the vertebral spaces, reducing or eliminating nerve pain and increasing functionality.
Postural Healing can help you by:
improving balance and stability to reduce your risk of falling
aligning the joints to reduce undue pressure and damage to bone and soft tissues
strengthening the muscles to support your skeletal structure
"Working with Anna at Postural Healing has helped improve my posture, feel stronger and more confident. Anna customized a series of exercises to strengthen my posture and was mindful of the amount of time I was willing to dedicate each day to doing them. I highly recommend seeing Anna if you have any issues with posture and/or back pain."
Posture and Pregnancy
The posture and musculoskeletal system play an essential role in conception, pregnancy and childbirth.
Postural Healing helps you prepare your body to
conceive, carry and give birth while decreasing the likelihood of unnecessary complications and pain.
Postural alignment exercises shift the pelvis and entire posture into a more natural position for a safer, more comfortable birth experience for both mama and baby.
Realigning your body postpartum helps it move back to its pre-pregnancy state more efficiently. Realignment also prepares your body to care for yourself and your baby - and return more quickly to your activities pain free.
Postural Healing can help you:
enjoy a pain-free pregnancy
prepare your body to give birth
restore your posture and any function disrupted during your pregnancy and birthing process
return to pain-free activity more efficiently
hold, nurse and love your baby without
chronic neck and back tension or pain

"As someone who has suffered with excruciating back and shoulder pain for more than 30 years (curved spine, long hours at a desk and traveling around the world on cramped airline seats), I reached out to Anna for help. Because of realigning my posture, the pain relief is astonishing and enduring. Massage, acupuncture and chiropractic work gave me some immediate pain relief, yet working with Anna is different. She has given me the tools to get to the root causes of my pain and I am healing."
