Posture analysis is the process of looking at the body and determining where it is, and educating you on where it should be. The body has an ideal position or posture. Humans are born with the body being balanced on both sides. As children we watch our parents and learn how to sit and move. We create postural habits that strengthen or overuse some muscles and leave the rest to get weak. If the muscular system is out of balance the results will show through posture and pain patterns in the body.
From a Classical Chinese Medicine perspective the energy that supports posture is found in the Sinew Meridians. There meridians express our moods and feeling through the physical body. Most of us adopt posture unconsciously, unaware of what we are conveying. Chinese Medicine says when we express feelings outwardly, we are activating the yang Sinew Meridians, when we suppress our feelings, we are using the yin Sinew Meridians.
At Acupuncture & Holistic Arts, we offer a unique program designed to treat musculoskeletal pain without drugs or surgery. It is a process which involves a series of stretches and gentle exercises designed specifically for each client. This process strengthens specific muscles and brings the body back to its proper alignment and functioning the way it was designed. All sessions are combined with Acupuncture and Massage Therapy to address the Sinew Meridians, loosen tight muscles and reactivate muscles that have become weakened.
