Learn techniques for postural correction in this illustrated treatment guide.
Postural Correction is a hands-on guide, focused on the lengthening of shortened tissues to help realign body parts. The text provides resources to help your clients overcome 30 of the most commonly occurring postural conditions.
Concentrating on treatment rather than assessment, the book takes a direct approach and applies specific techniques to improve posture from an anatomical rather than aesthetic perspective.
Techniques, which vary for each posture correction, include deep tissue massage, simple passive stretches, soft tissue release, common trigger points and gentle limb traction.
Because weak or poorly functioning muscles may contribute to postural problems, the text also notes which muscles need to be strengthened and includes recommendations for how to strengthen them.
