Posture is not static.
It is dynamic and the sum total of our lifetime postural habits and our daily stresses which are expressed in our bodies as chronic tension, muscle strength and weakness and postural imbalances. Postural Assessment, Therapeutic Touch, and Corrective Movement/Therapeutic Pilates can help relieve chronic tension, promote deep relaxation, enhance self-awareness and improve posture.
Postural Assessment can provide a variety of benefits for the client and the therapist.
Therapeutic Pilates is grounded in the moving body.
Massage Therapy is an effective tool for managing stress and improving your health.
By combining these complementary therapies, Where You Stand offers personalized sessions that honor your unique needs while facilitating rejuvenation and balance for your whole being.
The Postural Recovery sessions begin with Postural Assessment/Body Reading of skeletal and soft tissue relationships, taking of client history, and movement screen. The following four sessions address the body through an individualized strategy. The final session is a Reassessment of Posture and an integration of the previous 4 with specific take away movements for the client to put in their personal tool box and "move on".
Checking back on a monthly basis is encouraged as conditioned movement patterns are hard to break and corrective movement reminders can be helpful along the way. The goal is to help you help yourself.
