Your posture has an incredible effect on your overall health. Poor posture can affect our performance in a number activities and can even negatively affect our internal systems. Posture alignment helps correct posture deficiencies and can significantly improve your well-being.
Posture is defined as the way we hold our bodies when standing, sitting, and performing other activities. Our muscles, which hold our skeletal system together, work in concert to keep your posture balanced. However, stress, weight, age, uncomfortable shoes, pregnancy, and other factors can affect the way these muscles work and result in poor posture.
Posture alignment, separately from or in conjunction with massage, relaxes tight muscles at specific points to help restore their ability to maintain a healthy posture. The benefits of good posture alignment include:
All these healthy benefits combined leave you with an improved sense of well-being when you have good posture alignment. In addition, better alignment now can help you reverse any symptoms of poor posture that have left you feeling overtired, stressed, and listless.
