Postural & movement evaluation
Each session follows the same procedures and the exercise material is adjusted according to the specific needs of the individual.
Tip: bring tight-fitting clothes to allow good visual of the whole body
In this session an assessment is performed to identify, evaluate and address the possible misalignments and dysfunctions of the bodily structure.
Most individuals experience some of these misalignments as permanent characteristics of their bodily appearance.
On the contrary, these are "adjustements" that we create in order to deal with our high tempo life, our work habits and social activities.
These adjustements have a great impact in our posture and could include the following: flat back or military posture, uneven shoulders, slouching, scoliosis, forward or tilted head, hyper-extended knees, bow-legged, extended stomach, rotated or un-level hips, feet angled inwards or outwards, etc.
They are often accompanied by physical symptoms such as muscle fatigue, backache, headaches, painful joints, poor gait, decreased range of motion, increased tension, muscle imbalance, sleep disturbances and more.
By addressing these misalignments you can enjoy the benefits of a good posture.
When bones and joints are kept in the correct alignment so that muscles are being used properly.
This helps to decrease the abnormal wearing of joint surfaces that usually results in arthritis.
A good posture prevents fatigue because muscles are being used more efficiently, allowing the body to spend less energy.
The spine does no longer become fixed in abnormal positions and that decreases the stress on the ligaments holding the joints of the spine together. That causes less strain and muscular pain while minimizing the possibilities of overuse problems and backache.
