POSTURE & REHABILITATION
Postures can reflect not only the way we may use or misuse our bodies through habits, work, recreational activities but also the way we may feel.
Whether the stress may be mechanical and/or emotional, a healthy body usually can adapt and readjust itself.
However, if the stress is on going, the body may gradually become less flexible and build up external and internal tensions which eventually will have an impact on the form or posture, the body mechanics, the physiology and sense of well-being.
Following a postural and body assessment in standing, sitting and lying down, the tensed areas will be identified and addressed with a hands-on approach.
When it is appropriated, customised postural advice and remedial home exercises may be recommended.
In my professional opinion, an optimal posture is not about being straight; it is about being able to adapt and move within the capacities of the body.
