Align posture

Sitting has become the new smoking of the current decade. It contributes to the risk of developing gluteal amnesia, hip joint dysfunction, neck/back pain, and many others. Even those who exercise regularly are not combating the long term effects of sitting so much of their day. Other than the 1-2 hours they spend exercising, involves sitting. It has become essential to align posture to combat this epidemic.

Poor posture leads to poor body mechanics. You may think your posture is pretty good, but if you are having neck and shoulder pain, headaches, issues with arms and hands, or if a bump is forming at the base of your neck, you have to do something different for the body to make an effective change. It can lead to breathing problems and stiffness in the hips leads to poor walking mechanics.

My practice  integrate therapies which align the body by treating and correcting muscular imbalances and dysfunctional patterns to prevent chronic pain. To reinforce the corrected patterns gained when working with me it made sense to include self care as a way to lock in those changes. Empowering you to maintain natural alignment of the spine in your everyday life.

Why posture

Align posture, in addition to preventing chronic pain having good posture can keep your energy levels high, boost confidence, lower fear, depression and anxiety etc..

This TED Talk by Amy Cuddy summarizes research concluding that five minutes of good posture a day radically alter beneficial hormone levels that affect our mood and other peoples’ attitudes towards us.

The posture and fascia Connection

The Fascia Research Congress defines fascia as all collagenous fibrous connective tissues that can be seen as elements of a body-wide tensional force transmission network. Fascia tissue is composed of collagen except for a few elastin fibers and together they link every part of your body together as one cohesive structure.

Developing and maintaining control of posture and movement is a necessary requirement for optimal performance. While minimizing compensatory patterns that potentially lead to injury. Although optimal performance is often attributed primarily to the muscle system. Recent evidence has suggested that the intricate relationship between the nervous, muscular, and fascial systems is vital in developing and maintaining control of posture and movement.

Posture restored by bringing back the natural curves in your spine to help you stay pain-free.

You can now change your body with a new innovative approach to align and re-educate your posture. The approach improves a weak back and activate core muscles helping you create good posture and putting the natural curves where they are meant to be.

Designed by Michaelle Edwards of Yogalign to reprogram your body for improved breathing and to sustain a more natural posture.

You cannot feel comfortable in your body and have ease of movement if you don’t have a functional core, yet the way most of us slouch in our chairs can actually override the natural function of the muscles of the core.

To quote Albert Schweitzer “Every human being carries within him his own doctor”

First session you will feel your back activated making it easier to
Sit in better posture
Walking in better posture
Improved range of motion in your hips
It’s time to be proactive and take your health into your own hands.

The benefits you gain from this therapy session. 

  1. Unique breathing techniques that tone the core and align posture from the inside out.
  2. Self-guided massage to stimulate blood flow, nourish tissues and increase kinesthetic awareness.
  3. Fascial freedom of the connective tissue web – a major determinant of our posture, movement and even our moods.
  4. Neuromuscular re-patterning techniques encoding aligned posture at the nervous system level.
  5. Activating the psoas/diaphragm connection for core centered movement, enhanced breathing, organ support, and emotional balance.
  6. Keep bones and joints in the correct alignment so that muscles are being used properly in your everyday life.
  7. Decrease the stress on the ligaments holding the joints of the spine together
  8. You will create a naturally aligned posture to eliminate chronic pain.

Align posture so your body can heal itself

Besides alleviating chronic pain and joint deterioration, posture alignment affects every system in the body. When we are aligned, our body’s cells have the necessary nutrients, circulation, and waste removal to function optimally. Healthy cells in every part of our body are needed for the bio-intelligence to heal injuries, immune weakness, organ dysfunction, vertigo, anxiety, depression and chronic pain

What makes this movement therapy session unique

This is a functional movement therapy session to stabilize the body by encoding aligned posture at the nervous system level to improve your alignment as a whole. By integrating breathing and self-guided massage with neuromuscular re-patterning techniques to tone the core muscles of the body. With an emphasis on safety, stability and the usage of sound biomechanical principles. Empowering you to align your posture and help you stay pain-free.

For decades I suffered of lower, middle and upper back pain with extremely tight neck and shoulder muscles, feeling like I had to make efforts to keep a good posture with muscles that felt tired. With precise movements and instructions, Mara has been able to re-train my muscles so that they engage properly thereby allowing me to finally feel like my muscles are supporting my body and keep a good posture effortlessly. I have even gained a slight curvature in my lower back. I can now function with ease moving fluidly, integrating her homework exercises.
