To some of you the phrase “stand/sit up straight” is a four letter word, likely because your spouse or your mom say it too often. Before cars, when everyone walked everywhere and had to work the farming or hunt for food, we naturally kept our bodies moving and in good shape. Now a days, even if you’re good about exercising and stretching, it’s an uphill battle simply because we sit so much. Sit in the car, sit at the computer, sit on the couch after a long day. Your body is built to move, and when it spends so much time not moving it makes a difference.
The core philosophy of myopractics is the idea that life is motion. The focus of each session is to get things moving in your body. Poor posture is a direct result of your body choosing to compensate in one way or another due to major or minor patterns of restriction. As we get things moving in your body it will be better equipped to maintain a natural healthy posture. That way your spouse and you mom can start bugging you about something else.
