How aligned are you?

If you stand in front of a mirror and relax, how well do all the parts of your body line up, from your head to your toes? You don’t need to be perfect. But the more aligned you are, the better you’ll look and feel.

What makes you go wonky?

Your muscles should keep your body aligned. But they need a variety of work to stay healthy and balanced. Our modern-day lifestyles rarely give us this. From a young age, we spend so much time sitting at a desk at school, and many of us have desk jobs.

These factors, along with injuries, shyness and stress, can make your muscles imbalanced. This can lead to misalignments (AKA wonkiness) in your posture.

How does poor posture impact you?

If your body is not aligned properly, certain parts have to overcompensate. This can eventually cause damage, injury, and pain. Also, you might feel unhappy and self-conscious about how you look. Posture tends to worsen with age unless you do something about it.

Many therapies focus on symptoms, and not the root causes behind them. This can lead to expensive, extreme and ineffective treatments.

What’s a better solution?

As a Posture Specialist, I target the root cause of the problem which is often poor posture. I give my clients special exercises to balance their muscles and align their body. This has helped so many of them to get pain-free, look better, and age well with less injuries.

It’s not a quick fix, and it takes a bit of effort, but by addressing the root cause the results are usually more powerful, satisfying, and longer-lasting.
