Upper Body Posture Alignment

Forward Head Postures such as the Upper Crossed Syndrome are the result of poor sleeping positions, driving stress, computer neck, whiplash, and faulty breathing habits. Pain becomes apparent due to muscle strain, disc herniations, arthritis, pinched nerves and overstretching of the spinal cord. A significant part of head, neck, jaw and shoulder pain is due to poor posture, tension,trauma, and central nervous system malregulation. These symptoms may reveal as fibromyalgia, myofascial tender points, TMJ, and chronic fatigue syndromes. (Exerts and Image from Eric Dalton; Freedom from Pain Institute).

Lower Body Posture Alignment/Pelvic Stabilization

Lower-Crossed Syndrome (LCS) is also referred to as distal or pelvic crossed syndrome. In LCS, tightness of the thoracolumbar extensors on the dorsal side crosses with tightness of the iliopsoas and rectus femoris. Weakness of the deep abdominal muscles ventrally crosses with weakness of the gluteus maximus and medius. This pattern of imbalance creates joint dysfunction, particularly at the L4-L5 and L5-S1 segments, SI joint, and hip joint. Specific postural changes seen in LCS include anterior pelvic tilt, increased lumbar lordosis, lateral lumbar shift, lateral leg rotation, and knee hyperextension. If the lordosis is deep and short, then imbalance is predominantly in the pelvic muscles; if the lordosis is shallow and extends into the thoracic area, then imbalance predominates in the trunk muscles (Janda 1987).

Stress Eliminator

The Stress Eliminator works to release and relieve stress and pain throughout the entire body not just your superficial tissue. The session is started with the client face up and Osteopathic techniques are used to eliminate any current pain, to put the body in a relaxed state. This is followed by subtle joint releases and some relaxing lower bodywork that focuses on the legs and feet. As I move to your upper body, generous time is devoted to the shoulders, neck and hands. The process is repeated when the client turns face down and again this portion of the session begins with pain and joint release techniques first. Then relaxing bodywork is devoted to feet, glutes, hips, upper and lower back and again the neck. This is a complete, PAIN FREE, stress release of the body and IS NOT your average Swedish massage! this is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines an array of techniques to help the body improve its circulation, relieve aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility.
