Healthy postural alignment is an easy feeling throughout your musculoskeletal system. But if you do most of your
activities of daily living with poor body mechanics, or are injured or stressed in any way, this ease may well be
replaced with muscle spasm and spinal misalignment. Fortunately, there are ways to address the alignment of bones
and their effect on joints, muscles, and/or nerves.
To help employees with bad posture conditions, we put together a program with the Massage Therapist and the Personal
Trainer that specialized in postural corrective exercises and massage adjustment. This program can be enhanced with
the addition to the Physical Therapist to the program
The scope is to analyze employee’s posture with specific tools, analyze range of motion on certain joints, document
with pictures, and provide corrective exercises and massage plan given by our professional staff. At the end of a two
months period a reevaluation will follow.
One of the strongest common themes shared by coaching and yoga is the emphasis on the process of fostering inner awareness. Both disciplines place great value on the path of self-discovery and believe that our journey begins by shifting focus from the external events and circumstances of our lives to the subtler qualities of who we are “being” in the moment.
