Good posture is an essential element of wellness. Your spine is a central component of your body, supporting nerves and organs that are crucial to proper function. When posture is out of alignment, it can negatively affect many aspects of your health. Professional posture alignment treatment can help prevent future back pain and even help manage current pain.
At Helen’s Haven Integrative Medical Spa, our posture alignment treatment targets specific muscles that affect proper posture, relaxing the tension that can cause posture to become unbalanced. Performed by Linda Manning, who is professionally trained in this posture alignment method, the first step in the treatment is a professional posture assessment to determine your individual needs. There are many health benefits for good posture:
Overall relief for your back. Good posture aligns muscles, bones, connective tissues, and joints to relieve pressure on your back, ease pain, and help prevent pain in the future.
Deeper breathing. Proper posture helps your lungs fill up better with each breath because they are in the correct position. Over time, muscles become shorter when you slouch, which compresses your lungs and inhibits oxygen delivery.
Better digestion. Improper posture creates compression on your stomach, liver, and intestines so that the digestive process is less than optimal. Proper posture relieves pressure on these organs so you digest your food more efficiently, which can help prevent digestive issues.
Fewer headaches. Tension in the shoulders and neck due to incorrect posture can contribute to increased headaches. In fact, some research has shown that people with more erect posture tend to have fewer headaches that last for shorter durations.
More youthful function. Correct posture has positive benefits as you age, with less stress on your organs and tissues for better function overall. These benefits include better mobility and even a more youthful appearance.
Our posture alignment treatment is available as a standalone service, or you can add it as an enhancement to a 60- or 90-minute professional massage by our expert massage therapists.
