Posture Correction: Small problems, big impacts

Posture Correction isn’t a simple, quick-fix solution – but it can have a huge impact on your life.

 

Poor posture can be caused by a number of factors, sometimes dating back to childhood. Sitting in poorly designed chairs, carrying heavy bags every day, falls, knocks and injuries, your sport, can all lead to sub-optimal posture, which can in turn cause more problems.

With the information gained during your Posture Assessment, we are able to create a specific, tailored improvement plan, and coach you through the process.

Your Posture plan

Posture Correction starts with body awareness. You will learn to hold your body in positions that reduce strain and discomfort. At first, these positions feel awkward and unnatural, but with ongoing reinforcement and practice, they soon become automatic.

Your training programme will also include specific exercises and movements designed to decompress your spine, create space around compressed joints , stretch fascial chains and strengthen muscular slings that create imbalance. These are all designed to help you maintain your new optimal body position.

We base your programme on your lifestyle and needs. If you already attend a gym, you can incorporate new exercises into your routine, if not, you can exercise at home using some simple pieces of equipment – like a Swiss ball or mat. Our online service gives you access to details of your programme and videos of each exercise on your smartphone, to ensure you’re practicing them correctly, every time.

At first, your programme will include frequent training sessions to help you establish positive new habits. Later, you will be able to continue exercising at home and integrate your new practices into your day-to-day routine.
