This week we are learning about postures and how a poor posture can put strain on the various muscles from the neck through the back and even the hamstrings…and everything inbetween!
The different postures included ‘Flat Back Posture’, ‘Military Type Posture’, ‘Sway Back Posture’, and ‘Kyphosis Lordosis Posture’. We identified that the ideal segment alignment maintains a combination of neutral head, knee, and ankle positions, while various slight positions for all other joints in the body. Depending on the type of posture and the effect it has on the associated muscles our massage can be tailored accordingly. Such an important module especially if you take the time to look around at how people hold themselves (ie their posture) and most are putting undue pressure on various parts of the body.
